Peace Like a River

I grew up singing a chorus at church in our Roanoke & Morningside years – maybe you remember it? The first verse was “I’ve got peace like a river.” The second verse was “I’ve got love like an ocean.” And the third was “I’ve got joy like a fountain.” It even had hand motions! We sang it loud and as fast as possible and we loved it! Did I know how profound the lyrics were? No. But it did lay some groundwork to what the Lord does for His people. A Peace that never ends and is never threatened. He blesses us with peace like a river–that’s how we can have peace in uncertain times! Let’s lean into Him and let His peace wash over us. Calming, present peace.
‘ ..Sweep over my spirit forever I pray
In fathomless billows of Love.’
