quiet me with Your love Lord
An Advent Prayer

The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.” ~ Zephaniah 3:17, NKJV

“‘Even if the mountains were to crumble
    and the hills disappear,
    my heart of steadfast, faithful love
    will never leave you,

    and my covenant of peace with you will never be shaken,’
    says Yahweh,
    whose love and compassion will never give up on you.” ~ Isaiah 54:10, TPT

I Believe God is With Me, and Yet My Heart is Struggling

Lord, I am so thankful that when I walk thorough the fire, I won’t be burned because You are with me. When I walk through the turbulent water, I won’t drown because You will carry me safely to the other side. I believe this, and yet my heart is struggling. Please quiet me with Your love Lord.

quiet me with Your love Lord

Your peace is all about me and settles me in my times of need — but I’m struggling beneath the burdens of others. I see their pain, the injustices, the devastation of lives lost, and my heart breaks. I want to fix it for them, but I can’t.

You can, Lord.

Will You step into their darkness and bring light just as You did so many years ago in that simple manger?

You came into the darkness of this world for us.

You came.

And You brought light, peace, love, joy … hope. All that we need You provide, IF we’ll accept Your gift.

I wish it was that simple Lord. It should be, but the reality is that our flesh pushes our heartache in front of Your love. Our enemy taunts us with his lies and accusations. And we succumb rather than rest in Your peace.

Forgive us. Quiet me with Your love Lord. Quiet my friends and loved ones with Your love. Open our ears to hear You singing over us — rejoicing over Your children.

Your love is beyond our comprehension. How do we grasp the length, the width, the height, and the depth of Your great love?

Your love draws us to You. Your love heals our broken hearts and fills our empty places. Your love is a shield about us, the glory and the lifter up of our heads. Always. Because You are good.

God is Faithful to Quiet Me With His Love

And You are faithful.

Thank You, Lord.
