Peace Be Still

Lord,

I thank you for your peace

transcending all understanding,

loosening and unfurling

the knotted messes of my soul,

calming, grounding, deepening within me

like the depths of an ocean swell

connected to the expanses of heaven above,

I’m riding the waves of praise emanating

from all your creation

and from my spirit within,

I can finally hear it

in the stillness of my soul.

Let me be still and know that you are God,

and align with the foundations of the universe

and all creation singing praise, glory, and honor

for who you are, what you’ve done,

your sacrifice, death, and life.

You hold the moon and stars in your hands,

you love this speck called earth,

you love me.

I rest assured, in peace,

in your ever-present, all-knowing, omnipotent love.

I praise you Lord.

Amen.

My Love

You are my Love,

let me reflect your presence and light,

like the fair moon that reflects the sun,

your music and whispers,

like the ear drum that gently stirs to delicate sounds,

your beauty and joy,

like a diamond that delights to scatter your beams of light,

your peace and gentleness,

like zephyrs that move lapping waves on the shore.

Your love is all around,

you spoke and brought forth life by your Word,

infused all creation with your power and Spirit.

All creation adores you and sings praise to you,

and waits in bated breath for the children of God to arise.

I have the spirit of power, love, and a sound mind,

I’m at rest in your love,

wholly alive, fully me,

beloved, enjoyed, delighted in,

to love you, love myself, and love others.

I arise to answer your call O Lord,

to be yours, and to discover for all eternity,

the riches of who you are.

You are mine.

Amen.
