Peace comes from Love deep within.
It is hidden by God in a special place.
We try to find this place so dear.
We search outside, we search very near.
But God’s peace does not come from only prayer.
It does not come from only devotion.
It does not come from only the word of God.
It comes when you pass the ugliness of sin, the stains of pride,
the desperation of holding on.
The peace comes when you fall down and sob.
When you give it all.
When you bend your knees,
When you scrape the dirt and grime off of your ways.
When you repent, and give it all away.
When there is nothing left.
When there is nothing held.
When the tears have stopped.
When the pain is expressed.
The peace comes warmly in, and Gods love begins anew, again.
