Thoughts on Rest

We all need your rest, Father

and yet we let the voices rage inside our heads.

We rip and tear and complain,

rehearse conversations,

nurse festered wounds,

re-enact battles,

slice and dice.

We all need your rest,

and yet, our minds are not with Him

who grants perfect peace.

They are sipping at fantasies,

numbed by others’ televised realities,

peering into the future,

fleeing shadows of the past,

walking with demons You defeated at Calvary.

We all need your rest, Lord God,

and I find it

in moments of repentance

in the grace of Your strength

in knowing Your love

is not about my comfort.

It is the goodness of Your glory.
