Advent 2 - PEACE


"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be obvious to everyone. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 4:4-7

Come; Sit awhile and Listen to Your
Still Voices’ Gentle Murmurings.
Melodious Silence is Sweetly Heard, whilst
Quiet Solitude enters with Soft, Silky Nurturings.
Breath in the Rhythms of Ripening Life,
Graciously Flowing from a Depth Within.
Feel His Peace Enveloping Your Soul,
Tending the Unease, that lies Therein.
Allow Serenity to Still you, with Serene Affections;
Soothing and Gently Caressing You, with God’s Loving Kisses.
Feel Them filling You Up, with His Golden Riches.
Bless your Soul, in “Times” True Reflections.
Allow His Peace to Enter in, with Unwavering Gentleness.
Permit Prayer and Thankfulness to Revive You Wholly,
and Feel God’s Benevolence.
Hence, all Anxiety and Mind’s Stress
is Quelled Towards Release.
For Dignity, is God’s Sanctified Peace.
- Yvonne Crist, 2017

Gracious God, guide us in confession of our sins. We know that in the presence of Your Peace, You have promised to redeem us & forgive us. Cleanse us as we prepare our lives for the coming of Jesus, who is our Peace. This we ask in His precious name. Amen.
