You will live in constant suspense, filled with dread both night and day (Deuteronomy 28:66; NIV).

The churning inside me never stops; days of suffering confront me (Job 30:27; NIV).

The peace I give is a gift the world cannot give (John 14:27; NLT).


I lived with chaos as a child –
But that was normal;

I lived with rage –
And that was normal, too.

I lived with condemnation –
That was normal;

And I lived with dread –
And that was normal, too.

Now, I no longer live with chaos,
Rage, and condemnation,

But still can’t overcome
My constant dread.

Please heal me, Lord,
And bless me with the gift
This world can never give –
Your inner peace.
