Fiery chaos surrounds me,
but You are the still waters in my soul.
into the silence of Your presence,
and I am not burned.
Thank You for the promise of Your perfect peace, and
Thank You for sustaining us through it all.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
St. Teresa of Avila:
Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.
