Prayer ~

Prayer covers,
our needs
our souls
it feeds.

It calms,
our conflicts
our unrest
it evicts.

Prayer takes,
our fears
our anxiety
it clears.

It relieves,
our concerns
our doubt
it upturns.

Prayer reassures,
our hearts
our minds
peace it imparts!

Mark 11:24

Therefore I say unto you,
What things soever ye desire,
when ye pray, believe that ye
receive them, and ye shall
have them.

A Calming Shush ~

He stills the waves,
to a calming hush
He gives His peace . . .
as storms at us rush.

He silences the seas,
to a tranquil lull
He grants us strength
when ours is dull.

He quiets the storms,
the winds He subdues
He gives us faith
when ours we lose.

He quiets the streams,
to a tranquil creek
He sends us power
when ours is weak.

He stills our souls,
to a calming shush . . .
He relieves our fear
with a soothing hush!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 107:29

He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof are still.

Word Garden ~

There is a place of calm,
for all of us to find . . .
a place to just let go
and find peace of mind.

Mine is in God’s garden,
amongst His Word I do reap
promises of green pastures
the gathering of His sheep.

Strolling along the path,
I bow down to smell a rose
the scent of His undying love
in my heart forever grows.

As I walk the narrow way,
I stop to pick a verse . . .
I’m in awe by His goodness
in His grace I’m immersed.

I stop and sit upon the bench,
under the arbor of my soul
I rest in the knowledge . . .
God is always in control!

God, My Tranquility ~

God, my Tranquility,
my Peace, my Calm
You are to my soul
a healing balm.

You alone provide,
the rest that I need
when in Your Word
I graze and feed.

God, my Quietude,
my Repose, My Rest
Your love and mercy
keeps me daily blessed.

You silence my heart,
with Your still small voice
You are the reason
in truth I rejoice.

God my Tranquility,
my Comfort, my Lull
may my trust in You
never grow dim or dull!

~~~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 4:6

Better is an handful
with quietness,
than both the hands full
with travail

Good Morning Quote ~06.29.20~


Sticky Note From God ~03.31.20~

Psalm 107:29


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 silence,
I sense this to be . . .
just the kind of stillness
for Jesus to meet me!

Psalm 46:10

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.

Jesus My Peace ~

Jesus is my Peace,
my hope’s assurance
He is my calm

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

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,

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.”

Jesus, My Calm ~

Lord, thank You for being,
my calm before the storm
for bringing me peace . . .
before it starts to form.

For, I never know,
when one I’ll go through
and when I do . . .
I want it to be with You.

Lord, thank You for going,
into the storm with me
there’s no one else
with whom I’d rather be.

For, only You can still,
my fears that fall and crest
and provide for me
an anchor on which to rest.

Lord, thank You for being,
my calm after the storm
for bringing me back to . . .
a place safe and warm!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 8:24

“And they came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Master, master, we perish.
Then he arose, and rebuked the wind
and the raging of the water:
and they ceased, and there was a calm”

We All Need A Break ~

We all need a break,
from the rut of daily life

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,

we all need God . . .
to give us peace of mind!

beyond your reasoning
so your faith in Him
can keep on increasing.

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!

~~~~~~~~~

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!

” He leadeth me beside
the still waters.”
