The word for today is PEACE.
In a world of chaos, dear Lord,
Let there be peace on earth.
Let me be an instrument of that peace.
We may not be able to control
What everyone else on earth does,
But we can control what we do.
Are you determined to be a peacemaker?
I want to be a peacemaker.
In spite of the chaos in this world,
I want to make peace where I am.
That may be all I can control.
And I can pray to our Father in Heaven,
“Let there be peace on earth!
Place the message of peace
In the hearts of today’s rulers.”
“Lord. I know you have overcome the world.
I know you also have given man free will.
Lord, place common sense and compassion
In the wills of those who are waging war!
Let there be peace on earth!!
And help me find peace in my little corner of it!”
As St. Francis of Assisi prayed,
“Make me a Channel of Your Peace.”
I love Susan Boyle’s voice singing that prayer.
Take a minute to listen to it… and internalize it!
To find peace in my place in the world,
I may have to turn off some of the news.
I MAY HAVE TO SHARPEN MY SENSE OF HUMOR,
And pass some chuckles on to my friends!
I want a username and password prompt
I may have to find reasons to laugh
In spite of the sadness and devastation.
I may have to look for reasons to laugh,
Reasons to pass along a sense of optimism.
I want to be a realistic optimist!
The pessimist complains about the wind
The optimist expects the wind to change
The realist adjust his sails
Love to you,
What will you do today to add peace
to your little corner of the world?
I am looking for the peace
of editing this post
and getting rid of the
And the peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Then you will experience God’s peace,
which exceeds anything we can understand.
