Prince of Peace

Through the heartfelt mercies of our God, 
God's Sunrise will break in upon us, 
shining on those in the darkness, 
those sitting in the shadow of death-- 
then showing us the way, 
one foot at a time, 
down the path of peace. Luke 1
He came as the Prince of Peace.
Not giving peace the way the world gives it,
peace at all cost, whatever I have to do to get it.
But peace from another kingdom,
peace with God.
I have the privilege of looking into 
His undisturbed face 
and receiving His perfect peace 
every moment of every day.
He is my peace.
This is the truth I celebrate this season.
This is the hope I must carry with me
as I go about my day,
interacting with those who walk in darkness,
with those who sit in shadows.
There are many who cannot look into 
His undisturbed face
because they can't see Him.
They might only see me.
Lord, may Your Sunrise 
break upon me all day long, 
that I might be a demonstration 
of Your kingdom and bring Your peace
wherever I go.
Even if it is just a smile to someone
in need of Your love.
Thank You for leading me,
One foot at a time,
down the path of Your great peace.
I am asking that You would give me an opportunity today
to bring that peace to others.
