Today I choose Peace

Today, I took a break from the news.  Today, I took a break from reading articles online that have anything to do with politics, protests or bitterness.  Today, the words of this song resonated with my soul. 

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be

With God as our father
Brothers are all we
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow

To take each moment
And live each moment
In peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me

Today, I’m focusing on peace.  Today, I’m choosing not to look at the world with disgust, disbelief and discontentment.  Today, I’m choosing peace.  Today, I’m choosing it for myself.  Today, I’m praying for peace for my family, my country, the world.  Today I’m setting my sights on the one who grants peace that passes all understanding.  Today, I’m praying that His peace penetrates hearts of stone, bitter seeds, loneliness, sadness, destruction and strife. Today, I trust His PEACE can do this!

“For I have told you these things so that, in ME, you may have PEACE.  In this world you will have trouble, but TAKE HEART, I have overcome the world!” John 16:33

Today, I choose to stake my claim in the soil of this promise!
