Rest

It’s a peaceful word 

Yet I struggle to rest

As I lean on my understanding 

And what I believe is best

It’s a reassuring word

No, we don’t have to fret

Yet I find myself weary

From this match that I’ve met

Why do I wrestle?

Why do I fight?

Why don’t I surrender?

And let you make everything light?

Why do I worry?

When the battles been won?

Why not let life’s darkness disappear with the Son?

“Return, O my soul, to your rest; for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.”

      1. Thank you! 😃 You’re right. The same meaning is there. That’s pretty cool. We’re all the same. We struggle to trust God even though He’s given us His promises that He is for us and He won’t stop working on us. Thanks for sharing that, Matt!
