A Pause in Advent 2- Peace

Thinking about peace today as it is the second Sunday in Advent. I hadn't heard this song before until someone posted it on Facebook, so I thought I would share it with you.

Peace is something we would all like - I wonder what you think of when we say the word. As I write this the wind is howling outside and there have been snow flurries today - not exactly a peaceful night! God has promised us peace - but His peace is not necessarily an absence of trouble, or worries, or howling winds - it is his presence with us in these situations which bring us the peace.

Despite our busy, hectic lives we can have God's peace with us.

This is part of A Pause in Advent, which is being hosted this year by Angela, why not pop over to her blog here and read some of the other posts.

I think the same wind has been blowing right across the Irish Sea! Thank you for these words. We watched the DVD of The Nativity Story at church last night, and it was a clear reminder of the gritty, dangerous times into which Jesus brought his unconventional, unexpected peace.

Aw, I love this rendition! I missed you last week and I'm glad I popped over today to enjoy this! Bless you.

This song is beautiful and new to me too. Your pause is lovely and very apt. What we want as peace is often having the strength of the Lord. Well said.
