Rest

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28 (NIV)


by Marcelo Terraza

Rest.  As a new mom, this is something I think about, often.  Especially lately, as I just feel exhausted, through and through. 

What do you think God means when he promises rest?  Does he mean physical relief, spiritual respite, emotional calm?  To be honest, maybe he means them all.  But when I think of rest....real rest...the words from this Jennifer Knapp song come to mind.  This is rest.



He is my Light and my Salvation
Whom have I to fear?
In His secret place I'll hide and pray
That I might hear a simple word.

O how I would have despaired
If You had not come found me there.
I can lean against Your throne and find my Peace.
Find my Peace.
And when my enemies draw near
I pray that they will find
That I'm protected and secure.
All tempests He will bind with a mighty word.

U how I would have despaired
If You had not come found me there.
I can lean against Your throne and find my Peace
Find my Peace

He is my Light and my Salvation whom have I to fear? 

-Peace by Jennifer Knapp
