Stressed Out? Here's Perfect Peace

faith inspiration Oct 17, 2020

If stressanxiety and overwhelm seem to be getting the best of you these days, you are not alone. It seems every day there is news to deal with emotionally, and it's a lot.

Yesterday I was discouraged...

It's so hard to see so many in our nation suffering, 

I have a child who is struggling with online school at home,

People are divided on so many issues,

We are experiencing the hottest summer in Phoenix's history,

and I'm concerned our freedoms and Republic could slip away.

A dear friend reminded me of this precious, tender hymn last night and it soothed my soul. Now I want to share it with you.

I encourage you to click on the link below to hear it, but come back to these lyrics, breathe, and take every word in.

Like a River Gloriousby Frances R. Havergal, 1876

  1. Like a river glorious is God’s perfect peace,
    Over all victorious, in its bright increase;
    Perfect, yet it floweth fuller every day,
    Perfect, yet it groweth deeper all the way.
    • Refrain:
      Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
      Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.
  2. Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
    Never foe can follow, never traitor stand;
    Not a surge of worry, not a shade of care,
    Not a blast of hurry touch the spirit there.
  3. Every joy or trial falleth from above,
    Traced upon our dial by the Sun of Love;
    We may trust Him fully, all for us to do;
    They who trust Him wholly find Him wholly true.

Listen to the song here (but, remember, come back for the words.)


Praying you are blessed with perfect peace as you trust in Him,
