When I am weak
And all I can do is fall
I fall, and I fall on my knees
And call on your name, Jesus

I hold my hands up
And raise my head high
Close my eyes with hope to see the light
And to you I surrender my life

Lord, Lord I know you're there
I know you're alive
Come down and hold me tight
Hug me, embrace me and heal me by your touch

To your mercy and love, I surrender

Lord I am burdened
I become weary
But I know you're here
So that's why I am calling

Lord, Lord I know you're there
I know you're alive
Come down and hold me tight
Hug me, embrace me and heal me by your touch

Totally, I surrender To your mercy and love

Amen.

      Thanks, Elijah for reminding! It is the peace I felt when I look within. God is the King of Peace!

      Not just "with us", Jason, but "within us".

      Jason, Again, what I wrote on your "The 18th of October" hub applies here. My experience is our greatest need is to find "the kingdom of heaven" within ourselves, stop looking to some god outside of us but within. The following is a poem I wrote during the early 1980s I want to share with you here called "It Lies Within".

      I have stopped my travels to pass this message on

      and as soon as I'm through I shall be gone,

      but it's my love for you and hate for your sadness

      which causes me to work and bring some gladness

      to you with that frame of mind I want to die.

      I know that feeling too, for there was a time when I

      sought to end it all by passing into death,

      but a whisper came from within before I took my breath.

      What was said has since escaped my mind

      though what brought me joy I did later find.

      One sage said he is the way, and for me that's true,

      that's why wherever you see me, I'm only passing through.

      But everywhere I go I see sadness on your face

      and realize it's because you haven't found your place.

      You can't find it in a crowd, nor in what is taught in school,

      no other man can tell you for what they say, as a rule,

      will only add to your sadness, for the answer lies within.

      How do I reach my root-center you ask me

      after seeing me joyous and content as can be,

      but the answer to that question was shown to you long before

      though in your attempt to please others you actually closed that door.

      You didn't do it alone is another thing I know

      but others wouldn't leave you alone for your center to show

      you what to do, but kept you cuddled so tight

      with do this and do that that you couldn't see your center's light.

      Then later when your center came, others called it fantasy

      thinking what they were doing is the way things ought to be.

      Now to get you on the path to hear what your center say

      is to bring again those fantasies you let go yesterday,

      explore them to their depth, in them are the clues

      to bring again your joy and dissipate your blues.

      If you ask me, maybe I can give aid,

      from your life I may remove some shade

      to assist your reaching the joy you get from your center within.

      Peace.

    working
