LET TRUE FREEDOM RING–A GIFT OF PEACE
Most of us celebrate our country’s birthday watching fireworks. But there’s something more we can do that will truly make a lasting difference in the lives of others. As you read this short inspirational piece, I hope it will encourage you to celebrate–and share–the Gift of true freedom and peace.
The Gift of Peace
by Rebecca Barlow Jordan
If I had the power, I’d give the gift of peace,
So all could live in harmony, forcing wars to cease.
I’d turn all hearts to love again in brotherhood and truth,
so death could never steal away a life within its youth.
With seeds of tender mercy, I’d sow a crop of care
to bloom within each gentle soul and water it with prayer.
I’d soak each life with kindness and plant contentment there
and cultivate its goodness, so every heart could share
the reaping of a harvest, on firm but gentle soil–
where weeds could never choke the life, and pest could never spoil.
I may not have the power to give this peace away,
for we will always hear of wars engaging in some way.
But I can give a treasure, worth more than anything:
I”ll give the world my Jesus, and let true freedom ring.
How will you share Jesus, the true gift of freedom and peace, this summer? What is true freedom to you?
