Finding Peace – A Poem

The Poetics prompt at dVerse Poets Pub today is to Celebrate International Peace Day. As I read Mary’s post and was reminded of all the places in the world where there is not peace, I was immediate reminded of the Prince of Peace, Jesus. Because of Him there is one place I can always find peace — as well as the desire and strength to be a peacemaker — and that is within my own heart where He dwells.

Finding Peace

Wars and turmoil
worry and strife
it’s hard to find
peace in this life

But in my heart
where Christ is found
peace does abound

I cannot cure
the world’s great ills
but in my world
foster peace still

I give His love
to those in need
bringing them peace
hearts from strife freed

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Matthew 5:9 (NIV).

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. So true, Linda, we can each foster peace and kindness to people in our worlds…each in our own way.

    And, yes, indeed…”Blessed are the peacemakers.”
