Wait for the LORD. Be strong, and let your heart take courage.
Yes, wait for the LORD—Ps.27:14.
There’s a peace borne out of conflict,
not of sweet respose.
The peace the Father sends
upon the one He knows.
Breathe upon our hearts
sweet Holy peace of God.
Release the fragrance
of the rose
upon the path we trod.
In times of stormy conflict,
through restless nights and days,
blow gently upon this rose
the sacrifice of praise.
I’ve shared this poem several times before, but felt led to post again. If you are experiencing heartache or conflict and need help to face the day, this is my prayer for you.
Dear heavenly Father, I pray You will breathe fresh peace upon the one whose heart seeks to know You. Whatever the confict, I pray Your living presence will strengthen and encourage, give help and hope today and the days to come. In the name of Jesus, Sweet Rose of Sharon, I pray. Amen.
Jesus took a towel and met with me one day.
“Will you let me wash your feet before you go your way?
Before you begin the work I’ve called you to do—
Before you yield your body my power and love flow through.
Before you face another day knowing not what it will bring,
Will you let me wash your feet and cause your heart to sing?
Will you cease from all self-effort, come to me and rest—
Learn my yoke is easy, my will for you is best?
Will you let me wash your feet before you start your day?
Will you listen for my voice—my will and way?”
“Not only my feet…my head, hands and heart.”

He came to Peter, who said to him, “Lord, do you wash my feet?” Jesus answered him, “What I am doing you
do not understand now, but afterward you will understand”—John 13:6 ESV.
