Listen while you read: "Hail The Day That Sees Him Rise"1 (Lyrics)
In all the busyness of today, we can lose sight of what is important. For myself, I know that sometimes, it is the end of the day before I realize that I was so busy with things, I did not spend as much time with Jesus as I should have. Thank goodness, He never leaves us. I think that He patiently waits for us.
The other night, I was trying to sleep when I started to hear the words of the following poem. I had to get up and write it down. I hope that it speaks to others, to help us to know that we are not alone, no matter what the storm in our lives is about. As we focus on Jesus and what is really important, trying to live more like Him and enjoying the peace and rest that only God can provide, we will become stronger in our faith and be able to share His love, peace, and rest with others.
- In His Rest
Let His arms hold you
Let His hands be your hands
He knows what you are going through
He completely understands.
Let His Word speak to you
Let His feet be your feet
Watch as He guides you
You'll have victory instead of defeat.
Let His thoughts be your thoughts
Let His heart be your heart
With His blood, your life He bought
So even in death, you won't be apart.
Prayer: Lord, we pray that we would look to You, instead of seeking other ways of getting through the storms that come our way. Thank You that You want to hold us in Your arms, to give us rest, and to help us to be what You need us to be. We pray today that we would know who You are, how much we need You, and how much You love us. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
Psalm 46:10a – Be still, and know that I am God. (NIV)
