Peace I Give Unto You

  “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” (Matt. 5:9)

“Ye will not suffer your children that they go hungry, or naked; neither will ye suffer that they transgress the laws of God, and fight and quarrel one with another, …
“But ye will teach them to walk in the ways of truth and soberness; ye will teach them to love one another, and to serve one another.” (Mosiah 4:14–15.)

“He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.” (Prov. 11:12)

 “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves.” (Philip. 2:3.)

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.” (John 14:27.)

Trust in the Lord

John 14: 1-3

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe
 also in me.
 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not
 so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again,
 and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may
 be also.

The Lord is My Shepherd

The Lord Is My Shepherd

The Lord is my Shepherd; no want shall I know.

I feed in green pastures; safe-folded I rest.
He leadeth my soul where the still waters flow,
Restores me when wand'ring, redeems when oppressed,
Restores me when wand'ring, redeems when oppressed.
Thru the valley and shadow of death though I stray,
Since thou art my Guardian, no evil I fear.
Thy rod shall defend me, thy staff be my stay.
No harm can befall with my Comforter near.
No harm can befall with my Comforter near.
In the midst of affliction my table is spread.
With blessings unmeasured my cup runneth o'er.
With perfume and oil thou anointest my head.
Oh, what shall I ask of thy providence more?
Oh, what shall I ask of thy providence more?
Text: James Montgomery, 1771-1854; based on Psalm 23

Isaiah 26:4

 Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord  JEHOVAH is everlasting  strength.
