In Christ

      Whatever environment we are in, it is changed in Christ. Wherever we happen to dwell, whatever we pass through on our journey to the Heavenly Canaan, it is refashioned by the riches of the grace of Christ.

      That which is terrifying becomes a peaceful habitation. That which is wearying to body and soul, becomes a place of rest—in Christ. A windy place becomes a sheltered spot of safety and joy. A tempestuous situation no longer is—in Christ. Christ becomes to us all things when we are in Him. He is our rest. He is our peace.
      Isaiah 32:1 says, "...a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land." 

In Christ is joy and peace for life,
His service knows not gloom
Although this world is clothed in strife,
Its dread is not our doom

In Christ is joy and peace today,
Why seek a "better time?"
We have no reason to delay,
And wallow in sin's slime

In Christ is joy and peace for me,
His grace- it reaches far
Beyond all that my eye can see,
Christ shines, the brightest star
