The Sound Of Silence ~

Upon the break of day,
I feel a calming stillness . . .
where everything appears
to be oddly motionless.

The sedated quietness,
infiltrates the early dawn
to the sound of silence
I find myself gently drawn.

The placid tranquility,
awakens up my soul
to ponder how only God
could this quietude control.

The peace radiating down,
seems so imaginable
that in its grip I remain
completely immovable.

Surrounded in the silence,
I sense this to be
just the kind of stillness . . .
that Jesus wants for me!

Be still, and know that I am God:

When Doubt Whispers ~

When doubt whispers,
in your ear . . .
tell it right away
to get out of here.

For if you listen,
to what it has to say
it will ruin
the rest of your day.

When doubt looks,
into your eyes
don’t you believe
its fearful lies.

For if you believe,
what it wants you to
with your thoughts
it will twist and skew.

When doubt comes,
close and near
don’t look at it
or give it an ear!

~~~~~~

James 1:6

But let him ask in faith,
nothing wavering.
For he that wavereth
is like a wave of the sea
driven with the wind
and tossed.

Sticky Note to God ~02.22.19 ~


Jesus My Peace ~

Jesus is my Peace,
my hope’s assurance
He is my calm
giving me endurance.

Jesus is my love,
my faith’s objective
He is my purpose
giving me perspective.

Jesus is my anchor,
my trust’s serenity
He is my Rock
giving me tranquility.

Jesus is my Advocate,
my sin absorber
He is my Refuge
giving me a safe harbor.

Jesus is my peace,
my happy ever after
Jesus is to me . . .
all that really matters!

Tranquil Trust ~

Peaceful rest,
tranquil trust
is what Jesus
gives to us.

Putting our cares,
into His heart
so hope in ours
He can impart.

Blissful serenity,
calm’s quietness
is what Jesus
provides for us.

Giving our fears,
over to Him
so joy can fill
us to the brim.

Peaceful hearts,
tranquil minds
is what Jesus
wants us to find!

Heaven Sent ~

Now that this storm is over,
now that I see blue skies
now that the ocean holds
the bounty of my cries.

I now know Jesus,
was with me all along
He was the only reason
I was able to keep strong.

Now that this storm is over,
now that I see the silver lining
now that the darkness left
taking with it my whining.

I now know Jesus,
was always at my side
encouraging me in Him
to trust and abide.

Now that my whining’s over,
now that my tears are spent
I can clearly see . . .
why storms are heaven-sent!

~~~~~~~

Mark 4:39

“And he arose,
and rebuked the wind,
and said unto the sea,
Peace, be still.
And the wind ceased,
and there was a great calm.”

Engulfed In Silence ~

When my heart,
I turn over to silence
when I let it listen
for God’s guidance.

I experience a hush,
an inner stillness
as I let His Spirit
to my soul witness.

When my mind,
I turn over to calmness
when I let it reflect
on all God’s promises.

I feel the tranquility,
only He can provide
as I let His Spirit
my thoughts guide.

When my heart and mind,
are engulfed in silence
God reveals to me . . .
how His peace is timeless!

Fear’s Canvas ~

When night turns,
thoughts anxious
casting shadows
on fear’s canvas.

Turn to God,
to ease your mind
and His peace
you will find.

When night’s dread,
long fingers wrap
and your heart
it has in a trap.

Turn to God,
to release its grasp
and onto His calm
let your heart clasp.

When the night turns,
your thoughts anxious
cast them onto God . . .
and watch them vanish!

~~~~~~

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

God’s Retreat of Peace ~

When you’re exhausted,
overwhelmed and weak
when all around you
appears cold and bleak.

That’s when you need,
God’s Refuge of tranquility
where from your troubles
you’ll find carefree, serenity.

When from the pressure,
you need to get out from under
when life seems to be
one blunder after another.

That’s when you need,
to take a breather
with God your Rock
and Fortress keeper.

When you are washed-out,
and in need of some rest . . .
in God’s retreat of peace
with calm, you’ll be blessed!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:5

“For in the time of trouble
he shall hide me in his pavilion:
in the secret of his tabernacle
shall he hide me; he shall
set me up upon a rock.”

We All Need A Break ~

We all need a break,
from the rut of daily life
we all need God . . .
to ease our daily strife.

We all need rest,
quite, peaceful tranquility
we all need God . . .
to restore our vitality.

We all need a break,
from the daily rush
we all need God . . .
our hearts to hush.

We all need peace,
calming, silent quietness
we all need God . . .
to shush us with stillness.

We all need a break,
from the daily grind
we all need God . . .
to give us peace of mind!

Peace Abounding ~

May God give you peace,
of both heart and mind
may He lead you always
His tranquility to find.

May He guide you to,
His water’s calm and still
may their quiet ripples
His peacefulness instill.

May God give you peace,
beyond your reasoning
so your faith in Him
can keep on increasing.

May He direct you into,
pastures lush and green
so on His gentleness
you may rest and lean.

May God give you peace,
surreal and astounding
so the hope in your heart
continues abounding!

Autumn’s Peace ~

Oh Lord, may this Autumn,
You bring perfect rest
for those who are feeling
weary and hard pressed.

May You send to them,
peace and tranquility
may You bless them too
with hope’s serenity.

Oh Lord, may this Autumn,
Your mercy sprinkle down
on all of those who need
to sense Your calm around.

May you give to them,
a peaceful, settled mind
so that for a season
Your quietness they may find.

Oh Lord, may this Autumn,
bring a needed reprieve
so those who are weary
Your peace can receive!

~~~~~~~~~

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth,
give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.

Those Still Waters ~

When my spirit,
is weighted down
from the tension
that is all around.

My Good Shepherd,
brings to me
those still waters
where peace flows free.

When my spirit,
feels weary and spent
from all the cares
today I have met.

My Good Shepherd,
leads me to
those calming waters
where peace runs true.

When my spirit,
feels out of control
it’s in those still waters
Jesus calms my soul!

~~~~~~

Psalm 23:2

” He leadeth me beside
the still waters.”

Holding the Line

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
