Peace Borne out of Conflict


There’s a peace borne out of conflict
Not of sweet repose
The peace our 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
Pour forth Your Holy Spirit
The fruit of peace divine
The peace borne out of conflict
Upon this heart of Thine
In times of stormy conflict
Through restless nights and days
Blow gently upon this rose
The sacrifice of praise

Relections from Matthew 8: 23-27, Lamentations 3: 22-26


  1. Conflict – – then PEACE! Great; thanks Sweetie


    • Grateful for the peacemaker, aren’t you?


  2. Thank you for a lovely start to Monday. Instead of looking ahead and planning, planning, stressing, and figuring, this is a reminder to find Peace in my now.


    • Becky,
      I can relate…I want my life to planned ahead…and I have to remind myself it already has been…by the Sovereign Lord!! Like you, I find peace in the now when I totally surrender my days and weeks and moments to the Lord. Only then does His peace come!


  3. Beautiful, Glenda. A friend once told me that “intimacy born of conflict is STILL intimacy.” Same goes for peace. Thanks for sharing 🙂


    • Susan,
      Well said! Reminds me God often uses conflict in our lives to develop greater intimacy and peace with God and with others. Thanks for stopping by Susan. Have a blessed day!


  4. Love this, Glenda!!!


  5. Peace, that elusive commodity our world so needs… Nice.


    • Melody,
      elusive commodity our world needs…you said it right. So grateful for the Prince of Peace who draws near when we cry out to Him. Thanks for stopping by!


  6. This is beautiful, Glenda. Love the paradox–God’s kingdom is full of them!


    • Cindy,
      Thanks…grateful for what He gives to share with others. Thanks for stopping by!


  7. Glenda,
    The thing about you, that I love the most, is the fact that you allow God to use you even when you do not realize it. You have been and continue to be such a great blessing in my life. So thank you for being you and allow God to speak through you. You hold a special place in my heart.


    • Sharon,
      Thank you for stopping by with your gracious words. I feel the same way about you my Alabama heart friend!
      Hugs to you!
