Some say Peace
is the absence
of trouble and strife

Some say Peace
is blue skies
and sunshine

Some say Peace
is the absence
of wars

Some say Peace
is no stress
and trials

~ ~ ~

But I say
In the middle of
trouble, there is Peace

On the darkest night
during a storm
there is Peace

Though the nations
war against each other
there is Peace

In stressful times
when mettle is tested
there is Peace


Peace comes from:

Knowing God,(Psalm 46:10)
Knowing you are loved, (John 3:16)
Knowing where you came from,(Genesis 1:26-27)
Knowing where you are going,(John 14:1-3)
Knowing forgiveness (Romans 4:7-8)
Knowing you are not alone,(Hebrews 13:5-6)
Knowing all things work together for good (Romans 8:28)
Knowing Jesus (John 10:7-16)

Belonging to Jesus the Lord, you will experience the Peace that passes all understanding. (Phil. 4:7)

This is True Peace


...........................................

Philipians 4:7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
(The Bible,King James Version)

May God bless you with a knowledge of True Peace.

This needs to be said and you did it so well.  In the loss of both of my children, I was heartbroken, yet had peace knowing they believed in the risen Christ.  It was so difficult for me to explain this.  The closest analagy I can come up with is like being in the eye of a hurricane.

Thank you for sharing.

   God bless

Dennis,

To know such Peace is truly a blessing.

Thank you for sharing your poem, your message of Peace, and these wonderful verses from the Bible with us.

Peace be with you and your family and God bless.

Thank you Dennis for this wealth of golden verse to study.. and most of all to live by.

A friend hears the song in my heart, and sings it to me when my memory fails.
