A Feeling Of Calmness ~

There is nothing quite like,
having a feeling of calmness
to be at peace with God
and to bask in His kindness.

It helps you to remain,
tranquil throughout the day
no matter what situation
may come about your way.

There is nothing better,
than an air of peacefulness
to delight oneself with . . .
thoughts of eternal happiness.

It helps you to continue,
to stay to God near
as you make your journey
while living down here.

There is nothing that beats,
having a heart and mind
soaking up all the peace
only in Jesus one can find!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4.7

And the peace of God,
which passeth
all understanding,
shall keep your hearts
and minds through
Christ Jesus.

Life Untroubled ~

Jesus never promised,
life would be easy . .
nor things would be
carefree and breezy.

Instead He said we’d have,
tests and tribulation
while living in this world
we’d undergo frustration.

Jesus never promised,
life on earth would be just
nor how its wicked ways
on us wouldn’t be thrust.

Instead He said as we made,
our earthly journey here
to claim in Him our victory
and to be of good cheer.

Jesus never promised,
life would be untroubled
He said He’d give us peace
so not to be befuddled!

~~~~~~~~

John 16:33

These things I have spoken
unto you, that in me ye might
have peace. In the world ye
shall have tribulation: but be
of good cheer; I have overcome
the world.

Lacking Peace ~

Is there a piece,
of your peace missing
are you hanging onto
anxious, nervous living?

Well perfect love,
will cast out all fear
so when full of dread
just draw Jesus near.

Is there a chunk,
of your serenity absent
is your sense of calm
but a fragment?

Well fix your thoughts,
on the things above
and you will be filled
with His perfect love.

Is there a piece,
of your peace lacking
well, give to God all that is . . .
to you nerve-wracking!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth out fear:
because fear hath torment.
He that feareth is not made
perfect in love.

Isaiah 26:3

Thou wilt keep him
in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.

Be Still Until ~

When waiting on the Lord,
to answer your prayer . . .
don’t become discouraged
instead rest in His care.

When seeking His response,
for your wants and needs
don’t become depressed
be at peace til He leads.

When God is quiet,
but you heart isn’t so
don’t become worried
instead let His mercy flow.

When looking for a word,
to help show the way
don’t become disheartened
but, let joy fill your day.

When waiting on the Lord,
be still until . . . .
He shows to you
what is His perfect will!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:7

“Casting all your care
upon him;
for he careth for you.”

Psalm 27:14

Wait on the Lord: be of good
courage, and he shall strengthen
thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

A Time To Let God ~

A time for patience,
and for some rest
a time to let God do . . .
what He knows is best.

A time for His Spirit,
to lead from above
a time to linger . . .
and abide in His love.

A time for endurance,
to run the good race
a time to stop running
and abound in His grace.

A time for calmness,
when composure is gone
a time to discover
how to be closer drawn.

A time to be quiet,
to sit and be still
a time to actively seek
what is God’s perfect will.

A time for silence,
of both mind and heart
a time for God only . . .
nothing keeping us apart.

A time to lie down,
in pastures green
a time to be protected
under His almighty wing.

A time to know and believe,
He’ll never leave or forsake
a time for God . . .
we all need to make!

Waiting Patiently ~

If were to remain,
and wait patiently
we must be willing
to do so obediently.

For a heart anxious,
is one restless
and it often feels
dreary and listless.

If were to remain,
and wait graciously
we must be willing
to do so expectantly.

For a mind fretful,
is one hopeless
and it often feels
weak and helpless.

If we’re to remain,
hopeful and upbeat
we cannot let man
our faith deplete!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:7

Rest in the Lord,
and wait patiently for him:
fret not thyself because of
him who prospereth in his way,
because of the man who bringeth
wicked devices to pass.

One Step Forward ~

Sometimes all I can put,
is just one foot forward . . .
for it is all I can do
to keep moving onward.

For I know that I need,
to be diligent and patient
though I am overwhelmed
by today’s environment.

Sometimes I just take,
one step at a time . . .
for it is all I can make
as I see evil on the climb.

For I know I must be,
willing to wait and see
so that fear’s fingers
can’t seize a hold on me.

Sometimes I don’t move,
instead, still I just stand
and say to myself . . .
this is all in God’s hand!

~~~~~~~~

2 Samuel 22:37

Thou hast enlarged
my steps under me;
so that my feet did not slip.

Psalm 37:7

Rest in the Lord, and wait
patiently for him: fret not
thyself because of him who
prospereth in his way, because
of the man who bringeth
wicked devices to pass.

Stay Still My Soul ~

Stay still my soul,
be still and know . . .
for God is with you
wherever you go.

Tremble yourself not,
rather wait and be still
for God will show you
what is His perfect will.

Be at rest my soul,
be at peace inside
let the Holy Spirit
in your heart reside.

Listen for His voice,
in the quiet stillness
and God will release
on you His calmness.

Stay sill my soul,
be still and know . . .
and from the truth
do not let go!

Psalm 46:10

Be still, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the heathen,
I will be exalted in the earth.

Pray As We Wait ~

As life’s storms,
we come upon
as more troubles
they bring on.

We need to pray,
as we sit and wait . . .
with forbearance
until they abate.

When life’s storms,
keep coming around
causing our worries
to teem and abound.

We need to hold fast,
to our future hope
as we sit and wait . . .
to help us to cope.

When life’s storms,
come at us straight
we’ll need God’s help
to sit and wait!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 32:6

For this shall every one
that is godly pray unto
thee in a time when thou
mayest be found: surely
in the floods of great waters
they shall not come nigh unto him.

Let God Rule Your Mind ~

Let God rule your mind,
let Him have His way
let His peace help you
navigate each day.

For when we seek,
His supernatural peace
into our lives He will
His quietness release.

Let God rule your heart,
let Him be your desire
let His peace be your
tranquility supplier.

For when we seek,
with a heart yearning
His peace will keep us
to Him, to keep turning.

Let God rule your mind,
let Him have your heart too
then just sit back and watch
what His peace in you can do!

~~~~~~

Colossians 3:15

And let the peace
of God rule in your
hearts, to the which
also ye are called in

Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled ~

Let not your heart be troubled,
let not worry start your day
for Jesus came to give you
a new and peaceful way.

Let not concern unsettle you,
let not stress take its toll
for Jesus will bring you calm
and quietness to your soul.

Let not your mind be burdened,
let not anguish weigh you down
for on Jesus you can depend
His tranquility will be around.

Let not your spirit fail you,
let not despair be what you feel
for Jesus wants your whole heart
to restore so He can heal.

Let not your heart be troubled,
let not it be afraid today . . .
for Jesus will bring you peace
and your anxiety will fade away!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:17-18

For our light affliction,
which is but for a moment,
worketh for us a far more
exceeding and eternal
weight of glory;

While we look not at the things
which are seen, but at the things
which are not seen: for the things
which are seen are temporal;
but the things which are not seen
are eternal.

God’s Quietness ~

Into my heart,
God brings His peace
so into my soul
calm He can release.

When troublemakers come,
He gives me tranquility
so I am not effected
by their open hostility.

Into my mind,
God brings quietness
so into my spirit
I can have stillness.

When chaos is all around,
in Him my soul is at ease
He gives me assurance
as men do as they please.

Into my heart,
God gives peace and grace
my soul He keeps quiet
when I seek His face!

~~~~~~~~

Job 34:29

When he giveth quietness,
who then can make trouble?
and when he hideth his face,
who then can behold him?
whether it be done against
a nation, or against a man only:

By His Own Authority ~

Sometimes my mind,
becomes so entangled
from my daily worries
it can’t get untangled.

But then I go to Jesus,
upload onto Him my care
and claim His promise
my burden’s He will bare.

Sometimes my heart,
becomes entrenched
from my daily problems
it can’t get unclenched.

But then I go to Jesus,
give Him my anxiety
and I claim His peace
by His own authority.

Sometimes my mind,
is my biggest foe . . .
and I can’t find serenity
until to Jesus I go!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests
be made known unto God.

And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.

God Given Peace ~

God gave me peace,
when I had nearly none . . .
He gave it to me
through His beloved Son.

Once I accepted,
Jesus as my Savior
my heart became full
of His grace and favor.

God gave me hope,
when I had mostly nothing . . .
He gave me faith
filled with truthful trusting.

Once I received,
His gift of salvation
I knew right then
I was a new creation.

God gave me peace,
when the old things passed
He gave me hope
with a belief steadfast!

~~~~~~~~

2 Thessalonians 3:16

Now the Lord of peace himself
give you peace always by all means.
The Lord be with you all.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold,
all things are become new.

This Peace ~

I never knew this peace,
that God has imparted
I never knew this calm
keeping my heart guarded.

I truly don’t understand,
or know how to explain
why I don’t feel wracked
by this unbearable pain.

I could never imagine,
a mind not over fraught
or how joy can capture
each and every thought.

It’s past comprehension,
way beyond my grasp . . .
how tightly God can keep
one’s heart within His clasp.

But, I know this one thing,
no where else could I find
for, the peace Jesus brings . . .
isn’t like any other kind!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:7

And the peace of God,
which passeth
all understanding,
shall keep your hearts
and minds
through Christ Jesus.

Till He Comes For Me ~

Till for me He comes,
alone, I will not be
for Jesus is always . . .
right here next to me.

I will wait for Him,
without dread or fear
for my Lord and Savior
is always close and near.

Till for me He comes,
afraid, I will not be
for Jesus is always . . .
right here inside of me.

He will keep me safe,
as He makes His way
His peace I will claim
right up until that joyful day.

Till for me He comes,
fainthearted, I will not be
for His Spirit is always . . .
power and strength to me!

John 16:33

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.”

Looking for that blessed hope,
and the glorious appearing of
the great God and our
Saviour Jesus Christ;

In God’s Waiting Room ~

In God’s waiting room,
I sometimes have to stay
it where He teaches me
the whys for His delay.

He wants me to know,
waiting has its due season
and soon I will gather
the answers to His reason.

He uses this waiting time,
for me to focus on His face
so that I can experience
the full measure of His grace.

He wants me to learn,
how to depend on Him
why my pride and conceit
He has to pare and trim.

In God’s waiting room,
I’ve learned about delay . . .
it’s where He taught me
to trust Him for each day!

of His Spirit.

Grapple not,
with your doubt

He’ll work things out.

Be still my soul,
oh, heart be unruffled
trust in God . . .
and be untroubled!

Your calm inside me.

Rested ~

When in God,
we find our rest
we’ll be ready
for any test.

For our faith,
will be strong
for whatever may
come along.

When in God,
we’re at peace
our trust in Him
will increase.

For when we’re calm,
though trials come
to their desperation
we won’t succumb.

When by God,
we are tested . . .
our calm composure
will keep us rested!

A Tranquility To Find~

There is a tranquility,
a calm to be found
when your every care
onto Jesus you unbound.

Then His peace will bind,
your heart and mind
and all your anxiety
will begin to unwind.

There is a tranquility,
a peace to receive
when your every worry
onto Jesus you relieve.

Then His calm will take,
control of your life
as you feel the easing
of your daily strife.

There is a tranquility,
a peace to discover
one that with Jesus . . .
will last now and forever!

We all look for,
some kind of peace
we all need
some sort of release.

we all desire
a lot less stress.

We all seek,
a gentle calmness

a stilling solace.

We all require,
some kind of quiet
we all request
a tranquil climate.

We all look for,
a real genuine peace
but only Jesus . . .
true peace can release!

But, it’s left to me,

and then my heart and mind
fear no longer can harass!

Besides Stilling Waters ~

Besides stilling waters,
is where Jesus leads me
whenever from all the chaos
I long and need to be.

It is where my heart goes,
in the heat of the day
where with Him in my mind
I can linger and stay.

Besides stilling waters,
running throughout my soul
is where I ask Jesus
to regain in me control.

It is where my hopes flows,
whenever there is a drought
where with His peace I find
the abating of my doubt.

Besides stilling waters,
is where Jesus and I meet
it’s there that my fears . . .
I leave at His feet!
