Where to Find Comfort and Peace

This has been a difficult week for me.  Life is filled with so much uncertainty.

I was so troubled and anxious as I was driving to pick up my carpool buddy Tara.  I turned on the radio and this song was playing.  I can't tell you how much it ministered to me.



So often life isn't simple.  I have a tendency to want to keep things peaceful.  But that isn't always possible.  After all, I cannot control others.  But I can choose my response to circumstances and people.

I find that I can come to Jesus and ...find comfort and peace.  

The world cannot provide that but He can.  How thankful I am that He is always with me.




I encourage you to visit Amy at Signs, Miracles and Wonders to listen to other songs for Then Sings My Soul Saturday.

Blessings and love,

  3. Amen. Thanks I needed that. I also loved the words that you wrote. Very true and profound. Reminds me of something I heard last week about living vertically. Just do your best and give it over to God. Thanks for the reminder. Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. I love that song. It's such a sweet reminder.

    I just prayed for you, friend. I hope you are having a rest-filled weekend. And I hope next week is filled with joy....surprises...and revelations in Him. He is faithful.

    I always appreciate your honesty and positive attitude. You're a blessing :)

    Hugs,
    Kate :)

  5. Debbie, I listened to the song you shared with misty eyes. It was my first time to hear it. What a beautiful song... it ministered to my heart.

    Dear friend, I have been going through uncertain times too these past days, and I have no idea what is ahead of me as a battle I have fought at another level before looms big before my eyes.

    So I can relate to you, albeit under different circumstances.

    How easy it is to just Fly to Jesus... and end it all. But we're still here... and so fight we must... and Live at the same time.

    I want you to know this truth in your heart: Jeremiah 31:2 - The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness - Israel when I went to give him rest.

    Keeping you close,
    Lidj

  9. Dear Debbie,
    I don't want to be shallow, but I know from experience that the only way to find peace, is to lean on Jesus and let him solve your troubles. After all, that's just what he has encouraged us to do.
    Matth 11: 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

    We both know it has worked before, and as impossible as it may seem, He will keep his word over and over again.

    Many times I think I ought to keep a diary over all the promises fulfilled. I haven't done it so far.What a shame. I pray and I agonize, but when I'm heard I'm like the nine leprosies. Even so I have the courage to thread in front of the throne of grace, over and over again.

    Because I know, He's there, and I am loved.

  10. Sometimes it seems our problems
    and circumstances loom larger
    than life, but, Jesus is so
    much larger. He IS our LIFE
    and I know you realize this.
    Life is hard. I know that for
    sure but I also know He has
    never failed me and He won't
    fail you either. Set your eyes
    on the prize...
    Love,
    Sandy

  12. That song always moves me in a powerful way. I first heard it about 5 years ago when our pastor played it during a worship service. Thank you for sharing it today. Knowing that our Lord is there, ready to help us in all circumstances is a joy beyond compare.

    Blessings & Love, Joan

  16. Debbie,
    I haven't heard this song in awhile, but it always ministers to me, too. I imagine you driving in your car and hearing the words, I know it must have brought blessing to you. It is a powerful invitation to us. Thank-you for sharing your heart.
    Love you.
