Peace like a river
Peace like a river

I Have a Peace

Peace can be found, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, there is hope and joy that awaits us when we come through the other side of a dark season of life. Here is my story in poetry. I did find that peace. Allow me to share it with you.

I have a peace

A gentle stream

Wending its way

Through my soul.

Quietly, gently,

It is cleansing away

The silt and sludge

That had built up

Around my mind,

And that had nestled

upon my heart.


The hand of God

Touched a raindrop

And sent it to me

As a peaceful

Healing spring.

He lifted the scum

That hid me from the light

And now the stream

Has brought me life.


I have a peace

I’ve never known

Its glory

I cannot contain.

Oh freedom!

Oh relief!

Welcome to my being.

Stay here for a while

I pray.

And we can play

And sing and dance.


I think I hear the tambourine,

And the singing of the host

Calling me to joy untold

And praising the God

Of love, and strength.

Can this be real?

Not a dream or wishful thought?

I think not

For the peace,

is something

I cannot describe.

But I feel and I know it,

Through the marrow

And my veins.


I have a peace and

I am changed now you see,

Never to be the same.

Or so I hope,

I pray it will be so.

Whatever trial

Or sorrow, or

Darkness

I encounter along the way

His peace will run swiftly

Through me,

And carry me beyond.

      Bill, it must have been a Divine appointment. I wrote this 6 years ago. I'm glad it helped you friend. It is a disheartening season in our nation in many ways. God grant us the serenity.

      I needed this today. I am so weary and disheartened by the unhappiness and turmoil we are surrounded by. Let's bow our heads and ask for the path to peace.

      Pax vobiscum
