Beyond Understanding

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

There is a peace beyond all understanding, 
A peace that’s found in Christ, and Christ, alone,
Not bound by circumstance or storms around me -
I find it in the quiet of His throne.
And in those moments when His peace eludes me,
The nights when I cry out to feel His love,
He reaches down, and wraps His arms around me,
And tells me I’m the one He’s thinking of.
I know, then, that He’ll stay beside me always,
No matter how the storms of life may rage;
And that the tears I cry are not forgotten.
His own, sweet hands will brush each one away.
Oh Lord, please rock me in Your arms, tonight.
Only Your peace and love can make things right.
"Then you will experience God’s peace,
which exceeds anything we can understand.
His peace will guard your hearts and minds
as you live in Christ Jesus"
Philippians 4:7 NLT
