CHRISTIAN POEMS AND DEVOTIONALS FOR THE SEARCHING AND WEARY
PRAYER FOR PEACE, INNER PEACE, PEACE OF MIND, PEACE POEM, PEASE OF GOD, GOD IS PEACE

By Frank E. Henrich December 2, 2006

   One of the biggest battles
       I have ever faced,
   Is to be at peace,
       With myself.

   Do I like myself?  
       Often I have wondered.
   Seemed easier to satisfy others,
       At least I can walk away.

   Yet, try as I might,
       I had to find a way,
   To be at peace,
       With myself.

   Oh, it is a hard job.
       First to have to learn,
   To like myself,
       And that ain’t easy.

   There are those stupid
       Things that I do,
   Old father nature,
       Poking up his head.

   I liken it to a lion,
       Caged up and hungry,
   When I let him out, 
       Oops, happen stupid things.

   Then I have to try,
       To love myself again.
   Christ is gone from my life,
       I reason.

   I know, of course
       The Christian life
   Is one of obedience,
       A hard task indeed.

   But can I be happy
       Otherwise?
   I try to change and
       To accept myself again.

   But is this acceptance
       Big enough to tolerate,
   My being all day and night,
       With myself?

   No, it is not enough,
       Life then is a drag.
   So how can I
       Solve this dilemma?

   I remember the Scripture,
       From dust you are,
   And to dust
       You shall return.

   So I ask God’s forgiveness,
       Feel right again with Him,
   Accept myself as dust,
       Trying my best.

   With glad hands,
       I welcome into my heart,
   That friend
       Called myself.

   There comes a time,
       When I am alone a lot,
   Then it is most important
       That myself and I are friends.

   and 14:17 plus Gal 5:22,

HAPPY PEOPLE AT PEACE WITH THEMSELVES

LISTED BELOW ARE PRECIOUS PROMISES FROM GOD BY SUBJECT MATTER

 
WE WALK IN LIGHT - - --1 John 1:5-10     Fellowship with Him and one another This is the message which we have heard from Him (Jesus) and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.  If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.   But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.  If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.   If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. NKJV

JESUS PROMISES REST - - - Jesus says to us - Matt 11:28-30 28 "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." NKJV

HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE WITH GOD - - - -John 3:16-21 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

18 "He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God." NKJV
