Mark 4:39: Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

COVID-19 seems to have created a terrible storm. Just like the disciples, panic is shouting, “We’re going to drown!” But Jesus is still saying today, “Peace, be still!” Will we quiet our own hearts long enough to hear Him? As Christians, we should be leading the way, the way of peace. Panic brings a form of insanity and pushes the Lord right out of the picture. But as we let His peace come to the turmoil, the sea will be calmed. And when we are calm, we can make the right decisions. Panic predisposes us to make foolish decisions and choices which will only bring more trouble in the long run.

Many years ago, I wrote a chorus. It was during the time I wrote about in Shadows in my Valley. I desperately needed peace. And the Lord gave me this song in my heart. I recalled it a couple of years ago when someone else was in need of peace. As I prayed, I sang this chorus. Many times since I have sung this song to someone in particular and she just loves it. Though I am no singer,

I wanted to share the audio of this with you


In case you can’t read the words well, here they are:

“Speak peace, Lord, to my spirit, Peace be still to my soul. In the trials of life, In the turmoil and strife, Speak peace, Lord, peace be still to my soul.”

Thank you for taking the time to stop by for a visit. I apologize that I have not written anything for so long, but I have been busy with other things. Maybe I will tell you in my next post what I have been up to. In the meantime, I pray that you will keep healthy, happy, and filled with the love of the Lord. May God bless you abundantly and protect you from all harm.
