For Peace and Comfort


In light of what how I feel in my own soul – a  Read this slowly and thoughtfully. And let htere be peace where there is chaos.

Blessing in the Chaos – Jan Richardson

To all that is chaotic in you,
let there come silence.

Let there be a calming of the clamoring,
a stilling of the voices
that have laid their claim on you,
that have made their home in you,
that go with you even to the holy places
but will not let you rest,
will not let you hear your life
with wholeness or feel the grace
that fashioned you.

Let what distracts you cease.
Let what divides you cease.
Let there come an end to
what diminishes and demeans,
and let depart all that keeps you in its cage.

Let there be an opening into the quiet
that lies beneath the chaos,
where you find the peace you did not think possible
and see what shimmers within the storm.
