I wrote this poem to wish peace upon the world, knowing that peace begins first with each one of us, in our own hearts. May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding remain with us always and may it spread throughout the world bringing peace to all. Let your light shine bright for all to see.
The feeling of calm when all heads are spinning
Never based on conquering or winning
But on a heart that stays open and willing
Through shining eyes are seen God's light
Giving the ability to sleep all through the night
Knowing there is never a reason to hate or fight
Despite all anxiety, worry, and fears
It lasts even as we grow old over the years
Still forgiving and loving through shed tears
Something no human may ever understand
Forbearance to bear pain and withstand
Knowing Heaven is the future promised land
This peace of God centers making us stable
With confidence we know that we are able
With Him and through Him, we are capable
The peace and strength are all His
He remains unchanged and always is
He wants our hearts, but does not insist
God waits patiently to love and forgive
Harmony and joy are the gifts His peace gives
It is because within our hearts the Savior lives!
- Dr. Rhonda Milner
"And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will
guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."
"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,
I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me."
