To a nation racially torn

Peace he sought to bring

Senryu

I’ve Been to the Mountaintop”

“We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now because I’ve been to the mountaintop… I’ve looked over and I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land.”  —Martin Luther King speech, April 3, 1968

(In tribute to a great man who left us too soon.)

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27)

Endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Ephesians 4:3)

And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house (Luke 10:5)

Carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.(Romans 8:6)

Eschew evil, and do good; seek peace and ensue it. (1Peter 3:11)

Peace, be still, Jesus said

Endeavor to keep unity in the Spirit

And let the peace of God dwell in you

Cover yourself with His Armor and

Equip yourself to walk in His peace

Acrostic

Now the God of peace be with you all.

Romans 15:33 KJV

Life Walk

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. Psalm 23 visual
Original Image— My Creative Bible

My joyful journey

Brings me beside still waters

Trusting my Shepherd

To lead through pastures of green

Peacefully I stroll

Pockets filled with promises

Walking with my King

Over mountains high and wide

And valleys deep and narrow

Choka

(Based on Psalm 23)
