Prince of Peace

PrinceOfPeaceAs a writer God has given me words of depth, boldness, precision and transparency. When I needed my breakthrough, I wrote. When I had to pour out, I wrote. Whenever I feel that unction…I write. So many words that come to my mind and so I wish I could explain more. Sometimes I wonder even if the words are really understood the way that I know them. Words tied to my soul. Every word released with such weight.

My heart is overflowing with a good theme;
I recite my composition concerning the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
Psalm 45:1

But as I listened to this song today for the first time, I could say these can be the most profound words that adequately describe my situation. Very much heartfelt lyrics and to the core of me. These make for such deep silent prayers that are recorded in heaven. God is watching down on us to bring us in sync. For a world divided, shattered lives and a fight to stay alive. This is the time we live in, yet with God giving us His Son (the Prince of Peace) we are able to endure it all valiantly and triumphantly.  

It is a beautiful experience to have a shared song at heart… for truly it was the Prince of Peace that met me at my darkest hour to bring me the light that I so desperately needed. I cannot emphasize enough TODAY how much that God met me THERE… every time! Through violent tears! Violent cries! Shouts of chaos! Walls of confusion! Shut off from fellowship! Closed in on every side! A pain so immense that I thought I would die just by thoughts! Words unspoken and never shared. Written in many books just left for me, the words only God knew and the words that only God will have.

So here is a blog with words of others. Full credit to the songwriters from Hillsong United: Matt Crocker, Dylan Thomas and Joel Houston. These distinct lyrics depict my collision with God through my worst days.

My heart a storm, clouds raging deep within
The Prince of peace came bursting through the wind
The violent sky held its breath
And in Your light I found rest

Tearing through the night
Riding on the storm
Staring down the fight
My eyes found Yours
Shining like the sun
Striding through my fear
The Prince of peace
Met me there

You heard my prayer

Hope like the sun, light piercing through the dark
The Prince of peace came and broke into my heart
The violent cross, the empty grave
And in Your light I found grace

Tearing through the night
Riding on the storm
Staring down the fight
My eyes found Yours
Shining like the sun
Striding through my fear
The Prince of peace
Met me there

You’re always there
And You hear my prayer

Your love surrounds me
When my thoughts wage war
When night screams terror
There Your voice will roar
Come death or shadow
God I know Your light will meet me there

When fear comes knocking
There You’ll be my guard
When day breeds trouble
There You’ll hold my heart
Come storm or battle
God I know Your peace will meet me there

(Again and again)
Oh, be still my heart
I know that You are God
Oh fear no evil
For I know You are here

And my soul will know Your love surrounds me
When my thoughts wage war
When night screams terror
There Your voice will roar
Come death or shadow
God I know Your light will meet me there

And my soul will know
When fear comes knocking
There You’ll be my guard
When day breeds trouble
There You’ll hold my heart
Come storm or battle
God I know Your peace will meet me there

Oh, be still my heart
And my soul will ever know that You are God
And You heard my prayer

Prince of Peace, Empires
Hillsong United Album
Released: May 26, 2015

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6

God certainly heard my prayer …every single one of them. He met me there…the Prince of peace. He has given me a sound mind. He has given me peace beyond measure and a joy inexpressible. I am forever thankful as I search within and feel Him closer to me than I have ever felt in all of my life. He is the closest One and the only One. How beautiful it is to have a relationship with the Prince of peace. For every tear that streams down my face now is no more in pain…they are because He has given me PEACE!

I can only say now that I know why the enemy was trying to bring me down by the thoughts in my mind for he knew that I would use them to send forth arrows his way for the Body of Christ to be knit together! These will be words for healing, restoration and wholeness…speaking identity to those crying out for peace. I will lead them also to the Prince of peace because He met me there too.
