In a world filled with chaos,
Where anger seems to reign
And people are suffering
From injury and pain,
Come heal us, Prince of Peace.

In times of hate and violence
That fill our hearts with fear;
When isolation keeps us
From those who would draw near,
Come save us, Lord of Love.

In seasons of deception
That lead us to rely
On our cleverness and wits,
While your ways we deny,
Deliver us, oh God.

And as we grow to love you;
Trusting you every day;
As we reflect your glory
In all we do and say,
Shine through us, Living Light.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
