My Gift


Faith is My gift to you;

let it fill you with hope and belief.

Do not doubt its power or result;

let it fill you with grace.

You need not worry or fear;

let your heart be filled with peace.

Let not a day pass without this peace.

With what, then, should your mind be concerned if you let this faith form you?

What then is it that can consume you?

What then will surround and threaten you?

Call upon this faith to be within you,

and My peace will live within you.
