And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: 23 “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them:
“The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”’
“So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”
Numbers 6:22-27 (NKJV)
From these verses comes the “other” ACU school song, one sung after so many events and a song that always reminds me of an ACU event. It’s a song we talked about in the closing ceremony of my Residency Session week at ACU last week. The idea of the Lord’s face shining upon us and giving us peace. I look forward to that day when I see the Lord’s face shining upon me, me in his presence, and I imagine the peace I will feel at that moment.
In the meantime, I want to seek out ways to find that peace in the here and now and to help others who are in the storms of life find that peace.
Grace and peace to you.
