Mortgage is due and you are now in the red!
Evil report is rife and all you have read!
Bulls and bears crashing before your eyes!
The Medic is worried your BP will rise!
Children at home with fees unpaid!
From your boss of late is unusual tirade!
Yet you're not just stoical but quite at peace!
Indeed, many surprised you are not in pieces!
This can only be the Peace of God.
To the world this may seem outright odd;
When worries and anxiety are far from view,
And prayer of faith comforts like heaven's dew;
This one and worldly peace are poles apart.
To pray with thanksgiving is to play your part.
The Peace of God will put you at ease,
Whatever may be the devil's tease!
When challenges come like a flood,
Be sure of the power in His Blood,
And when you receive the poser,
"From where is this calmness coming"?
Just say, "It's beyond understanding"!
(Php.4:6-7, Joh.14:27, Job 1:20-22, 1Th.5:18, Is.59:19)
