Perfect peace -

Hey, ya'll ....
I want to share this song with you that I've been
listening to quite a lot lately.
So many of my friends are going through pain right now -
things I can't share, and maybe don't want to.
When my heart becomes heavy,
and the tears threaten to fall,
sometimes I just let them fall, listen to this song,
and remind myself of the Lord Who cradles me,
even as I weep.

For those of you who have shared with me,
parts of your life, things of hurt, grief, fear, pain, loss -
thank you. I am praying for you every day.

If you'd like to take a listen to the song,
the link is HERE.

It is called "Perfect Peace" by Laura Story. :)

"Stay close by My side, keep your eyes on Me,
though this life is hard, I will give you perfect peace.


In this time of trial, pain that no one sees,
trust Me when I say, I will give you perfect peace,

and you'll never walk alone, and you'll never be in need,
though I may not calm the storms around you,
you can hide in Me.

Burdens that you bear, offer no relief,
let Me bear your load, 'cause I will give you perfect peace.

Stay close by My side, and you'll never walk alone.
Keep your eyes on Me, and you'll never be in need,
though this life is hard, know that I will
always give you - perfect peace.


.... I will give you - perfect peace."
~ Laura Story ~

Life IS hard, but HE will give us perfect rest,
because HE is a good and holy and perfect God.

So lay down your burdens ...
and know that HE, the Perfect Prince of Peace,
will give peace - to US.
