Rest

Advent Word of the Day: Rest

Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle

and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:29

 

We toil fruitlessly in our daily lives

all efforts to get ahead

mean nothing to our spiritual selves

God asks only for us to love Him

Jesus asks us to walk in His light

to put aside daily woes

they dissolve

only by resting in God’s

true light can we live in peace

and love

 

we rest from daily toils when we meditate

we rest from tension when we pray

we rest from things we cannot control

we when we go into our dark room and talk with God

God relieves us from our fears

God forgives us for our sins

 

When we rest in God’s arms

we are safe, we are strong

we are purified by Love
