So needful it seems…

My heart warms when I read this story and sing the words from my heart. Have you had experiences from this song that changed your way of thinking, loving and/or living?

  1. I didn’t know the history of this song, but I think it is interesting that: “The song’s focus on peace and God made it easy to cross many boundaries.” If the world today would focus on the same, maybe the boundaries that exist now, would dissipate?

    1. Tammy, I was thinking along the same lines. But, to be honest when the song makes it clear, ‘let it begin with me’ I lose focus since the challenges often seem beyond my thinking. Yet, I am reminded at times God does much through a One.

  2. I’m still thinking, “the peace that was meant to be.” It seems to me I need to be in study of God’s Word to know the peace that was meant to be. If not, according to the teachings of the Book of Judges we are studying here, I would be making up rules of peace each day when my selfish eyes feast on the peace that best suits my humanness. 🤭 Am I the only one that has the ‘ism’ of being right in my own eyes?
    “Let there be peace on earth,
    and let it begin with me;
    let there be peace on earth,
    the peace that was meant to be.”
