Peace at Last


Beautiful Temple 

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. PSALM 122:6 NLT
 

The Song of Ascent on your life’s journey is Jesus.
     Omnipotence protects you from evil—live fearlessly.
     Omniscience rules and overrules all of life—live confidently.
     Omnipresence accompanies you everywhere—live joyfully.
     Walking toward the Holy City, reach for Christlikeness.
     Pray Francis’ prayer—be My instrument of peace.
     Learn peace and relax—you have already won!
     Making the pilgrimage of faith, experience the meaning of life.
     Homeward bound, travel the Way to the Truth of Life.

The serenity of the Almighty is your joy.
     Sing My praises—let My love inspire a song in your heart.
     March to My cadence—let My leading put a spring in your step.
     Tranquil in the honor of citizenship in the new Jerusalem,
          where cruel war will fi nally give way to worship—
     Live peace and look forward by faith to a quiet place in heaven
          where songs in My Presence will gladden your heart.
     Anticipating peace forever, believe in the morning that lasts.
     Happily blessed, triumph over chaos by My gently whispered calm.

The symbol of your assurance is Jerusalem.
     You are a child of the King, so faithfully dance the jig of joy.
     No fear, chaos, anxiety, or turmoil will ever mar glory’s realm.
     Death, heartache, and disease will be obsolete in My kingdom.
     Celebrating My gift of hope that paradise will be restored,
          the Peaceful Prince reigning from new earth’s capital city—
     Love peace and rest in My care, secure in heaven guaranteed.
     Waiting for My promised future, count on the Messiah of Love.
     Humbly believing, trust eternity’s golden daybreak to bring peace at last.
