Song: “Wonderful Peace”
Warren D. Cornell
Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight
Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm;
In celestial-like strains it unceasingly falls
O’er my soul like an infinite calm.
Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Coming down from the Father above!
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray
In fathomless billows of love!
What a treasure I have in this wonderful peace,
Buried deep in the heart of my soul,
So secure that no power can mine it away,
While the years of eternity roll!
I am resting tonight in this wonderful peace,
Resting sweetly in Jesus’ control;
For I’m kept from all danger by night and by day,
And His glory is flooding my soul!
Ah soul, are you here without comfort and rest,
Marching down the rough pathway of time?
Make Jesus your friend ere the shadows grow dark;
Oh, accept this sweet peace so sublime!
VERSE: Psalm 18:32, “It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.”
My days may not seem perfect to me or, honestly, to anyone else. But they are perfect. With each obstacle there is a God that has allowed it into my life and has created a way of escape. With each heartache, there is a God that sees, knows, and feels my every care, lovingly passing me through it. With each victory, there is a God that loves me who has provided the victory. With each joy, I am reminded that there is a God that gives me that joy. With every ray of sunshine, I am reminded that I am the apple of His eye and the focus of His attention. No, my days may not seem perfect, but they are perfectly suited for me!
Daily He loads me with His benefits (Psalm 68:19). Daily He provides my every need (Philippians 4:19). Daily He surrounds me with His strength (Pslam 4:13). He has a plan for me, and it is a perfect plan (Jeremiah 29:11). Yes, today, and always is a perfect day! Jesus loves you. You are loved.
Prayer: Lord, I want to thank You for Your blessings on me. Thank You for loving me and making my way perfect! Give me a grateful heart. Help me to walk in Your ways. Teach me to shine Your light to bring joy to others. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
