PREPARE YE THE WAY OF THE LORD

TL 12-1 PREPARE YE THE WAY OF THE LORDOn the ninth day ‘fore Christmas we are to pray for peace in our hearts and thank God for His Amazing grace.  How badly do we need the peace that God gives – peace that passes all understanding?

TEN DAYS FORE CHRISTMASWhat songs come to mind when we think of peace?  I have several favorites, but the best one is this:  https://youtu.be/547e7uoNPcw

Even if there is conflict and anything but peace around us, we can still have God’s peace in our hearts.

I’m reminded that Jesus is the anchor during the stormy times – He’s our solid Rock when everything around us is shaky.  https://youtu.be/3ot1h7k2vig

THE BIRTH OF PEACELET'S PRAY FOR PEACEIt’s difficult for me to wrap my mind around the concept of terrorism – serving a god who wants you to kill those who do not share your beliefs.  To me, that is the definition of intolerance.  Christians would like to share our faith, but whether you accept God’s grace or reject it is ultimately your decision and we respect you regardless.

I believe my life is in God’s hands – and that’s the best news of all.  https://youtu.be/PuargQgY7GA

Let the peace of God reign…  let it reign!  🙂

Lord,

Please bring peace to my heart.  Sometimes my life seems clouded with so much doubt and anxiety.  I’ve come to a fork in the road and don’t know which way to go.  I know I can’t stand in the middle of the fork in the road, lest I get run over.  I can’t just stand still for fear of choosing badly.  Make me brave.  Help me be open to all the possibilities that come my way.  Show me which road glows with Your joy and happiness.  When my judgment is clouded bring me into Your sunshine and remove my worries and doubt.  Make the pathway bright and let me know it’s right for me.  Then help me walk it with integrity and courage.  Your love is with me always and that’s the only truth that needs to be understood.  Hold me in the palm of Your hand and carry me on my life’s journey to a place that is peaceful and tranquil.

I pray all of this in Christ’s Name,

Amen.

Let there be peace on earth – and let it begin with me…  🙂
