Our Rest

“O Lord, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes haughty;
Nor do I involve myself in great matters,
Or in things too difficult for me.
Surely I have composed and quieted my soul;
Like a weaned child rests against his mother,
My soul is like a weaned child within me.”

Lord, may your children lean into you for rest and peace and safety and joy.  You are always there welcoming us.  Why does it take a crisis for us to come before you?  May we seek your lap every minute, every decision, every day.  May we find rest under your wings – deep rest for our souls in the midst of a world of sin and chaos. Thank you, Jesus, for preparing a way for us to come to the Father as children.  Thank you that you give us rest and make our load lighter.

Rest is there.  Will you claim it today?
