Peace like a River

I got a surprise in the post today.
My friend Julie, who I know prays for me a lot, sent me a peace lily.
The instructions made me smile
Your Peace Lily will tell you when it hasn't been watered as its leaves will droop (but try to avoid it reaching that stage)!
That sounds familiar....

Last week I had a line of a song going through my head.
Something about a soft robe wrapping me up in his love.

He gives you peace like a river, washing away all your fears.
He gives you light, like a new day, glowing through all your tears.
He gives you joy, like a soft robe wrapping you up in His love.
He gives you strength, like an eagle, hovering high above.

He came hoping to show you the way to be free.
He came dying to love you, so you could see how to see.
He gives you hope, like fresh laughter bubbling out of a child.
He gives you life that’s unending, loving you all the while.

Why not pray it for you and your family, as I pray it over mine.

May the peace of God, which transcends all human understanding,
guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)

I love this song, I have been listening to a recording of this by the International Staff songsters of the Salvation Army - it makes me cry every time I hear it.

Great cornet solo too -
