As I lay in bed tonight, I felt the need to write (in the form of a poem) about an experience I had the other day. Over the past couple of days I have been under attacks of doubt and depression concerning my going to Peru. Despite this, God gave a me a very short glimpse of His peace which carries me through all the trial.

It was short but refreshing
It was sweet and nourishing to my soul
I was unsure but not after that moment

It was Your peace...
That which comes down from above
That which surpasses all understanding
It sets my feet straight on Your path
It renews my mind in an instant
All doubt and fear vanish

In the presence of Your peace only things of You can stand
That which is not of You is suddenly wiped away
And with Your peace I will go to this foreign land
With You by my side, hand in hand
Take me to Peru
