Rest in the Lord


When I feel overwhelmed
By the daily pressures of life
Will I find rest in You Lord?

When every part of me
Wants to turn and run away
Will I instead run to You so I can face the day?

When the heavy demands
Keep on coming
Will I turn to You and receive the strength to carry on?

When I’m at my breaking point
Will I fall broken before You
Renew my heart and mind in Christ Jesus?

When the world around me
Has stress at every turn
Will I come to You and take peace?

When I’m looking at my circumstances
Tempted to doubt
Will I trust in the One who is faithful and true?

When the world around me
Changes at a breakneck speed
Will I stand firm in the shadow of my immutable God?

When I hunger and thirst
For truth and righteousness
Will I come to the Holy One of God?

When I don’t know what to do or say
Desperate for understanding
Will I ask for wisdom from God who is all knowing?

When I want to escape
Leave it all behind
Will I take refuge in the Lord?

When I feel like I’m going to drown
Overwhelmed by the flood and darkness is closing in
Will I believe God is able to deliver me?

When I’m downcast
Tempted to doubt, grumble and complain
Will my lips praise and glorify Your Name?

Will I choose a life of comfort and ease
Or choose to endure difficult circumstances
If it means Your presence is with me?

Picture a Day - Wild Yarrow

The yarrow in our garden is one of my favorite plants.  In the wild, it's just as pretty.
