There IS Peace

Published May 21, 2015 by birdieklh

There are times when the world is so full of stress, angst, confusion, conflict, insert whatever adjective fits your situation . . . that we MUST find that place where we can seclude ourselves in the presence of our God and receive His peace and rest.

Here is my Solitude and Serenity page at Pintrest . . . I imagine myself in one of these places and focus on God’s sweet wonderful loving arms around me.

The old hymn “Near to the Heart of God” comes to mind . . .

There is a place of quiet rest,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where sin cannot molest,
Near to the heart of God.

Refrain

O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
Sent from the heart of God,
Hold us who wait before Thee
Near to the heart of God.

There is a place of comfort sweet,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where we our Savior meet,
Near to the heart of God.

Refrain

There is a place of full release,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where all is joy and peace,
Near to the heart of God.

Refrain

Words & Music: Cle­land B. Mc­A­fee, 1903 (MI­DI, score). He wrote these words af­ter two of his niec­es died from diph­theria. The Park Col­lege choir sang the new hymn out­side the quar­an­tined house. (reference and lyrics from http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/n/e/neartoth.htm)


Lord, God, this is where I need to be . . . actually, where I need to remain . . . in Your presence!!! Thank You that You have invited us (me) to come to You with our heavy load and take up Your light and easy, peaceful yoke instead . . . bless You, my King! I love You SO much!

  • What a wonderful and timely reminder for all of us! Sweetheart, each time you write something like this or give me a word or a look which helps me to rediscover how important it is to remember that we are human BEINGS, not doings. Sigh. Help us, Lord, to love on you more often. We do so need your love. And thank you, Birdie, for reminding us, tool

    Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
