Be My Peace

When darkness covers the sunshine When I start to feel anything but fine When I’m too worried to be still Be my peace If I fall down and struggle to stand again If I fear too much to begin If I am consumed with being like everyone else Be my peace When my life feels out of my control When the future is too difficult to behold When every step feels too hard to take Be my peace When I lie awake at night When I’m struggling to find the light When every day, I cry out to you Be my peace • Bethany Acker • When life is overwhelming, God has compassion on us. He sees, He cares, and He invites us to come to Him. How might God be inviting you into His peace today? Just hours before Jesus went to the cross, He told His disciples, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27). How is the peace Jesus gives different from the peace that comes from circumstances? (You can also look at John 16:33.) How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? Psalm 13:2a (NIV)
