Peace like a river ( do you have it?)

Posted by appolus on August 24, 2011

Do you have a peace that surpasses all understanding? The Scriptures tells us, and Jesus commands us to be ” anxious for nothing.” This is the entryway into a supernatural peace. Its an act of the will to obey the command of God. Obedience leads to faith and faith leads to obedience. Do you demonstrate this fundamental truth in your life? Do you walk in a supernatural peace that surpasses all understanding because you come before the Lord with everything but most especially, with a thank-full heart? Is it the Lord Jesus that guards your heart and mind? Or, is it your wife, your husband, your checkbook, your job, your military, your government? Do you allow yourself to be anxious?

The world is looking for peace and contentment, are you a demonstration of those things to the world? Are you an expression of the Lord Jesus Christ to a lost and dying and fearful world, or are you as equally fearful as your lost neighbor? I wrote this below out of a thankful grateful heart for being the recipient of one of the greatest treasures of heaven, peace in the deepest part of me. Thank you Jesus……..brother Frank

My peace is like a river
Winding slowly to the sea
My heart is deeper than the ocean
Filled with love He gave to me

Oh love that knows no ending
Rise up and set me free
I shall sail forever on this ocean
Forever, ever closer unto thee

Fill my sails oh precious Jesus
Wind of the Spirit propel me on
Over seas of tranquil beauty
To the horizon and beyond

I have sailed through stormy waters
When all my days had turned to night
I have sailed though windless days
Often tempted,tired, and no more fight

Sometimes the sun it seems to set
And we fight the rising tide
Of fear and darkness and regret
Yet thou art always by my side

So sail on my heart, to journey’s end
Sail on into the night
And neither wind nor rain nor stormy seas
Shall diminish the morning light
