Make me an instrument of Thy Peace

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.  (Matthew 5:9 NASB)

Make me an instrument of Thy Peace.

Where there is hate, let me bring love.

Where there is offense, let me bring forgiveness.

Where there is discord, let me bring union.

Where there is error, let me bring truth.

Where there is doubt, let me bring faith.

Where there is despair, let me bring hope.

Where there is darkness, let me bring light.

Where there is sadness, let me bring joy.

O Lord, I do not seek so much to be consoled as to console,

To be understood as to understand,

To be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive,

It is in forgetting ourselves that we find ourselves,

It is in forgiving that we are forgiven,

It is in dying that we are reborn to eternal life.

Matthew 10:38-39 NASB  “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.  (39)  “He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.

Forever realize that you are a source of God’s light and love.
