As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. -- Isaiah 55:10-11

I'd Give You Peace

Dear Lord,

If I could give my loved ones anything this morning, I'd give them peace.

I'd give them peace within themselves that gave them courage to resolve the conflict of person they struggle with. I would give them peace to address inconsistencies that aggravate them. I would also give them peace that there is spirit...and there is flesh...and they are spiritual beings before you who happen to be spending time in a flesh body.

I would give them peace with they could sit with you in the wonder of your presence and speak honestly to you about whatever hurts them, confuses them, amazes them, or angers them...even when you are any or all of the above.

I would give them peace with their situations...and the knowing that...Lord, I don't even I'm just giving that one to you.

Lord, if I could give them anything right now, I'd turn off the tormenting voices, the painful regrets, the fears of wounds being touched and hurt again.

I'd give peace to the mind, heart, and spirit of every single one of them.

I would let them sleep or sit quietly or enjoy a watergun fight or...whatever their peace set them free to do and be...the part of them imprisoned by the lack of it. Lord, I'd give them back and give them the freedom to enjoy the part of them imprisoned by the lack of peace.

I can't do that. Would you do for them?

Thank you.
