Rest

“Wagons” are circling
in whirlwinds of uncertainty –
We choose to rest

Family member hospitalized
mystery surrounds us –
We choose to rest

Military duties call away
our offspring
unclear what to expect –
We choose to rest

Job prospects don’t
deliver as promised
Back to ground zero –
We choose to rest

Pastor resigns
most didn’t see it coming –
We choose to rest

We act from God’s guidance
doing what’s deemed fit and best
while we rest in the everlasting arms
of our Creator who gives rest
to whosoever will — let us come
to rest.

Jesus says in Matthew 11:28 – KJV, Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Yes, rest — indeed.
