One True Peace

As bond-servants [margin] of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart.

EPHESIANS 6:6


LORD Jesus, turn us from the noise

Of endless strivings and empty joys,

To find forever Thy one true peace,

Rest from sorrow, from sin release!

HARRIET MCEWEN KIMBALL


CAN He not enable you to do that will from your heart, in your surroundings? Are you sorely tried by those surroundings? Are they, in themselves, humil­iating to you, or exasperating to you? Are they full of acute heart-pangs, or heavy with a chronic heart­ache? Not one of these things is forgotten before your Lord. Your slightest pain finds response in His sympathy. But let that thought be but the steppingstone to this, that for you as for the slave-saint of Ephesus there lies open in that same Lord the blessed secret of a life which shall move amidst these same unwelcome surroundings as a life free, and at leisure, and at peace, full of love and rest, blessed and blessing; a life hid with Christ in God; a life in which everything, from your rising up to your lying down, the smallest cross and the largest, is seen in the light of the holy, the beloved, will of God, and so is met not with a sigh, or a murmur, but "from the soul."
