“When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s life may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things and who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.” – Wendell Berry
Can you feel the increasing weight of the world on your shoulders? Is the copious turmoil going on in the world today bothering you? You shouldn’t, my friend. God didn’t create His children to live in agony. His will for all of us is to live in harmony and peace with Him in His Kingdom forever. While this chaotic world tries to lead us astray, The Good Shepherd directs our feet beside the still waters where real peace resides. Our quick response then is to follow Him. And, just in case you’re in need of something to soothe your spirit, this Theodore Silva song would be of help. You can listen to an a cappella recording of it below.
The Kind of Peace We Need is Found Beside the Still Waters…
The wordings are as beautiful as the message. Do you agree? They’re powerful enough to move us to a tranquil place like no other and let us leave our woes behind. There, we can never find any trace of trouble, only serenity. Also, in that place, He is our Good Shepherd and we are His sheep. With His great love for us, He ensures our highest safety day and night. As we journey with Him every single day, He guides us to the righteous path and we will never be lost again. Isn’t that comforting dear readers? I bet you will say yes.
