Jesus is…My Peace

For many years, this song has been my prayer whenever anxiety creeps up on me:

“Peace, peace,
Wonderful peace
Coming down from the Father above.
Sweep over my spirit
Forever, I pray,
In fathomless billows of love.”

Whenever I feel anxious or overwhelmed, I take a deep breath, step away, and sing these few words.

· Slowly.
· Meditatively.
· Prayerfully.

In supernatural ways, God—the source of all Peace—calms my spirit and soothes my soul.

Everything around me might stay the same, but I am changed as my mind and my heart focus on my Heavenly Father. As I envision Him sitting on His throne, I sense Him speaking “Peace” into my situation. My heaviness lifts, my shoulders ease up, and my tense muscles relax.

Peace, peace, wonderful peace.

· When the kids are all screaming in the car.
· When my work is piling up on my desk.
· When my house looks like a tornado hit.

Peace, peace, wonderful peace.

Peace that only He can give (John 14:27). Peace that flows as I trust in Him (Isaiah 26:3). Peace at all times and in every way (2 Thessalonians 3:16).

Jesus—He is my peace (Ephesians 2:14).

    This is one of my favorite songs, too. I could hear it as I read your post. His peace is such a gift to us – an inexplicable mystery, but one that He promised whenever we have need. All we have to do is stop and ask and listen and wait and be still. Thanks for sharing, Daphne.

  4. Yes, Cheryl! Isn’t His peace incomparable? Nothing soothes my troubled spirit like the peace of God.

    • Wonderful to hear, Mary! God’s peace surpasses all we know and have experienced–a complete difference from the turmoil we might have endured for weeks, months, even years.

      Continued peace to you today and forever.
