Rest is found in You. In only Your Word. With a soft blanket and warm socks, snuggled on the couch I find the rest. Not in my circumstances. So many fears of the future. So many question marks for today. So many thoughts to keep me captive. Letting go of the fear. Fighting the questions with truth. Quieting the thoughts in my heart with whispers of songs.
Rest is found in my heart, not my hands. I can feel at rest while I vacuum. A heart in worship to You will find rest in the middle of folding laundry. My heart stays close to your Word. It whispers while I work and gives me rest. Nap time comes and instead of sleeping, I find real rest in reading Your Word. Meditating on the Truth.
Rest is found in letting go of perfection. I stop trying to do it. And say, not today. Today I will lean into truth. I will strive to make it through the hour and its ok. Rest comes. Rest always comes with the setting of the sun. As the darkness inches from the tops of the mountains into the valleys, I see Him.
Rest is listening, in all the loudness of this life to His Voice.
Everyday. In the ordinary.
