Where Peace Is Found

The prompt today at dVerse Poets Pub is to write about something that is part of our every day life. I could have written about any number of things, but decided to write about prayer.

Where Peace Is Found

Kneeling here
elbows leaning on my soft footstool
head in my hands
I find peace

Reading Psalms
thoughts leaning on God’s promises
Bible in my hands
I find peace

Praising God
soul leaning on my sweet Jesus
heart in His hands
I find peace

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. One can never go wrong when it comes to prayers and praying. The inner feelings of emptiness would readily be filled with joys of salvation!


  2. Yes indeed! Spending time with God should certainly be an “every-day” experience…even moment by moment…not just a few hours on Sundays or in an emergency…and then we truly will have peace!!

  3. it’s good to find peace in his presence… usually i go outside to hear god’s word – the daily audio bible on my headphones and nature… perfect combo..

  4. Very prayerful and meditative verses. The repetition also lends a sense of duty and adherence, which I think is very appropriate for this poem. Very well done,


  5. Prayer and worship should definitely be a big part of our lives. And hopefully it spills over abd across the whole of our day

    • I think I have just about determined, if someone mentions god, or worship, or how spiritual they are — you might as well skip them, because they never return visits. Enjoy your god — i want nothing to do with them if this is a reflection of them.

      • I’m sorry you have come to this conclusion. I actually read a lot of poems posted at dVerse, though sometimes it takes me a few days to get through them all. I try to go directly from Mr. Linky rather than just read those who comment on my blog. I do find it interesting, though, that your second comment suggests that your first comment was less than genuine. Peace, Linda
