Rest

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it. Isaiah 30:15 NIV (Emphasis mine)

Lord, let it not be said of us that we would have none of it.

“In Rest” by Travis Cottrell

I’ve heard You in the thunder
I felt You in the rain
I’ve met You in the turmoil
I found You in the pain

But here in the stillness
When this moment, all is well
Here I’m prone to wonder
Hear my rebel tell

Cure my heart of chasing whirlwinds
Of needing earth to quake
Of wrestling made up angels
To keep myself away

There’s passion in the stillness
There’s fire in the cloud
There’s rest that brings a man to life
There’s a voice that whispers loud

O, bid my restless wandering heart
To find its pulse in You
In stillness know that You are God
In rest You make me new

The Lord Bless you with rest, with being still, and knowing that He alone is God.

    1. This part is my favorite, a clear diagnosis of how and why our hearts wander:
      Cure my heart of chasing whirlwinds
      Of needing earth to quake
      Of wrestling made up angels
      To keep myself away
