Praising You, Lord, for Your presence with us.
You are Immanuel; You are ever faithful.
“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," (John 16:33)
"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," (John 14:27)
"...What if my greatest disappointments,
or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst
This world can't satisfy..." (Laura Story, Blessings)
