A mind at perfect peace with God
|A mind at perfect peace with God;
O what a word is this!
A sinner reconciled through blood;
This, this indeed is peace.
|By nature and by practice far,
How very far from God;
Yet now by grace brought nigh to Him,
Through faith in Jesus’ blood.
|So nigh, so very nigh to God,
I cannot nearer be;
For in the person of His Son
I am as near as He.
|So dear, so very dear to God,
More dear I cannot be;
The love wherewith He loves the Son,
Such is His love to me.
|Why should I ever anxious be,
Since such a God is mine?
He watches o’er me night and day,
And tells me “Mine is thine.”

John 17:23 (ESV): 23 I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.
The Father loves us as He loves Jesus. This is hard for me to accept but is so true. Amazing!

Thanks be to God for the word of God. This song really touch my heart. Thanks to the song writer as well.
This song has truly blessed me today during my Devotional with God. It's so wonderful to know that I am so loved by God with the same love with which He loves His Son, Jesus Christ, who is my Savior and Lord. Lord You are my peace, my Joy, You are my everything and I love You more than anything!
Thank those of you who wrote this song and for those of you who placed in my devotional book!! I thank God of for the person who gave this book to me as a gift that has truly blessed me, and still blessing me every day. God please bless her abundantly because she is a faithful servant of yours, and a good friend to me.

Thank You God for You are our Peace, and rest. You are now reachable, touchable and so available to us thru Your son's death and ressurection. You are a Wonderful God!

When we sang this today I did not think or believe the writer was correct in his thinking that God loves us in the same measure as His Son. Then the Holy Spirit of God "hit" me with a remembrance of our Lord's Prayer in John 17......."That Thou lovest them with the SAME loves as Thou lovest Me." I was blessedly silenced
