If peace be in the heart,
The wildest winter storm is full of solemn beauty,
The midnight flash but shows the path of duty,
Each living creature tells some new and joyous story,
The very trees and stones all catch a ray of glory,
If peace be in the heart.
~Charles Francis Richardson
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
The ways to peace:
- Allow yourself to be peaceful
- Practice a "gratitude attitude"
- Live your life with wisdom that you glean from the Word of God
- Use spiritual music to lift your spirits
When peace rules our hearts, the enemy can't shake our hope!
