Inner Peace From God - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

My hopes like shipwrecked paper boats
Are crushed upon the streams of life.

With nothing to hang on to keep afloat,
Prayer, my anchor, holds me through the

Weeping I fall prostrate at Your feet,
'I love You, O Lord, my Strength.'

Your Divine comfort and grace complete,
Engulfs my soul in infinite length.

Your inner peace surrounds me like walls
And You, O God, are my glory within.

The broken, You love- and those who fall,
The contrite of heart, You redeem from sin.

There is nothing on earth that can give me this,
Unconditional love and Your inner peace.

'And I Myself will be a wall of fire around it, declares the Lord, 'and I will be its glory within.'
