MY WISH FOR YOU

20140605-234434.jpg

Written for Jonathan and David’s sister. My sweet friend, “R”

I wish you peace
In His presence
In your mind
In your heart

I wish you peace
to forgive the unforgivable,
in others
In yourself

I wish you peace
To know, really know
that you are more than the measure
Of your own doubts or the weaknesses of others

I wish you peace
That your single focus can be torn away from what may be wrong
That your eyes widen in wonder
and you see, even for the first time…all that is right

I wish you peace
To drink in and drown
In the knowledge that all you are and all you are not
Is the work of a Master who adores you

I wish you peace
That you hear the voice of the Spirit who lives in you
That His prayers on your behalf become melodies of strength,
and testimonies of love

I wish you peace
That you give it all away, drop the burden at His feet
and that when you rise from your knees
You are renewed, restored rebuilt

I wish you peace
That the broken vessel becomes a deep cistern
Strong and mighty, able to refresh the parched streams
running through the land

I wish you peace
Because I know who loves you most
Who holds you dear, who made you fine
Who is the Prince of Peace and your everlasting Bridegroom

I wish you peace
That you will hush your pain and crawl up into the lap of your Father
In His arms, all who seek Him don’t wish for peace
For they have already found it

 

About setyourpathsstraight

It is my desire to serve God and others through writing; by proclaiming His goodness, provision and character in story form. Though I was not always a follower of Jesus Christ, I have experienced life changes that can only be a result of personally meeting Him. He is not a God of religion, but of relationship. I don't have the answers to life's challenges, but I know where to find them...only in God's Word can any of us stop following crooked paths. The month of my spiritual birthday, I read Proverbs 3:5-6 and claimed it as my life verse... "Trust in the Lord in all you do, lean not on your own understanding In all your ways acknowledge Him.... and He will Set Your Paths Straight." Thank you for your visit today. Please come back again.

  1. Thank you as always. It is so humbling when God moves our hands and hearts for Him. This poem is a result of His desire to speak into the troubled life of someone dear to me. I hope it blesses others too. I am so thankful to have that opportuntiy. Amen and Amen indeed.
