“Take peace, “ says the Lord, “from the depth of my bosom. Take quiet rest from the center of my soul. I give it to you. The price for it has been paid; by my blood, by my breath, by my pain.

“You toss and turn through the night. You wrestle with fears and are ensnared by worries. But I am here, my child. I am here to comfort you in the midnight hour. Don’t be afraid. Rest in my peace. I give it to you freely. I shower you with it from above. But in order to settle in my peace, you must trust in who I am, what I can do, and the Word by which I stand.”
