Prefer Peace


Romans 12:14-18
New Living Translation (NLT)

14 Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them. 15 Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all! 17 Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. 18 Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.

I Prefer

I prefer to live in peace
No strife, no panic, and no grief
To sit inside a happy home
Where love’s rule brings such relief

To not give into my selfish heart
And always seek control
To bless another with a helping hand
And watch their dreams unfold

To have compassion for another’s plight
And speak with healing flair
To voice concern in such a way
I’d even use it for a prayer

And at last to lift this choice on high
To reach the Throne of God
Where He might hear my heart’s desire
Up where the angels trod

Then He might listen and give a smile
And with His mighty hand
Give me wave on my final day
To enter the Promised Land

Help me each day to surrender to Your love and leave behind this dark world for the hope that is to come.

Thank You
