Poem Of The Day

Rest Now

Written by Lisa DeVinney on December 29, 2014. Posted in poetry

“Come to Me, all of you
who are weary and burdened, 
and I will give you rest.”
~ Jesus Christ
(Matthew 11:28 HCSB)
 
Child, lay your head here gently on My chest,
And let your mind be perfectly at rest.
Don’t let it fill with things you need to do.
But let this moment be just Me and you.
 
Those things you think cannot wait…well, they can.
Instead of yours, this time, let’s try My plan.
For I see what tomorrow has in store.
It’s all that you can bear, and nothing more.
 
There will be tests to stretch your growing faith.
There may be times to hurry…times to wait.
There may be times you feel you can’t go on.
But in your weakness, child, I am strong.
 
I’m here with you today…tomorrow, too.
So rest, My child. And let Me care for you.
 
 
“casting all your care on Him,
because He cares about you.”
1 Peter 5:7 HCSB
