Dec 19: For peace is but a dream


Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it. – Thomas Jefferson

I am listening. What is God’s message? Yahweh’s message is peace for his people, for his faithful, if only they renounce their folly. – Psalms 85:8

Uncertainty sits on me.
The door is opened wide.
I can leave anytime.
I don’t, I am safe inside.

The world beyond the door is blurred.
It is unknown, yet with choices.
I can step out, take chances offered.
I dare not, you did not let me.

Within me there is unrest.
For fear of making mistakes.
Because I was not allowed.
Now I am afraid to step out.

There must be millions like me.
Fear ruling their decisions.
Afraid to voice out wrongdoings.
Rather we compromise instead peace.

There is an internal fight.
Frustration builds up each day.
Decisions are at conflict daily.
For peace is but a dream.

Please continue to share with friends, for the World needs our prayers.
Peace be with you. Amen.
