The Secret of Peace

Peace be with you.

John 20:19

I give you poise in earth’s scary situations.

There is no need to be intimidated by people—they are mere mortals.

I am your Omnipotent Helper, so do not let fear get the best of you.

I whispered stars into existence—I know their names and yours too.

I will never leave you—My Presence is your failsafe security system.

Every heartbeat, step, and season of your life—I am with you.

I give tough shoes for rough roads—I am your Equilibrium Equation.

Rely on the Almighty to see you through trouble—find true serenity.

I give you pardon in your guilty struggles.

Religious rituals are futile—My blood is the way to forgiveness.

Grace is your only hope of removing guilt’s oppressive burden.

Self-talk does not ease doubt—My Spirit is your assurance of heaven.

Listen to your Shepherd’s voice and rest assured.

Let Me calm your heart—experience the tranquility of inner-stances.

When I make Myself at home in your heart, you can rest easy.

I give you My promise all will be well in your uncertain tomorrows.

I live in the eternal now—I Am Who I Have Been and Who I Will Be.

Call Me Rabboni, your very own Teacher—follow Me into the future.

My heart is your unassailable fortress—a restful home.

Trust My Word and know supernatural composure facing eternity.

Keep faith in your Invisible Means of Support—be an eternal optimist.

You cannot know how faith in an Unseen One brings ecstasy,

     but do not let your lack of understanding stifle your enthusiasm.

There is no need to go around wringing your hands—

     take My wounded hand, confident you can trust Me.

I will bless you with peace of mind nothing can disturb.

My supernatural gift is the secret of peace.
