Slow Down, Come Rest

Busy, busy me, full of self-sufficiency
I have tried so fervently to earn Your love
But any joy that I once found is wearing off, is winding down
And I can hear You in the madness calling out

When You say come, rest -should I be working so hard
When You say love, rest -did You want hands or my heart
'Cause I have done my best and still I miss the mark
But I remember You said it’s done
So I come
I Come to the water's edge
I rest in Your promises
That all You ever wanted was me here
And if there's nothing left that I can do
To earn the love I need from You
Then all that's left to want is to be near
So I come...when You say come...
Come Rest- Lindsay McCaul

We think that to be Christ-like is to be constantly moving and doing physical acts on His behalf. While going on missions and volunteering is fantastic, it’s also important that we slow down and take moments to just rest in His presence. A favorite verse of mine is Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
“Be still and know that I am God”, just that much is enough to knock me into silent awe trying to really appreciate the meaning of those words. We worship the God of all creation, and there are times when He just wants us to stop and be with Him. In this fast-paced time we live in, our time can turn into a precious commodity; shouldn’t we share it with the maker of everything we are?

Slow down, Come rest
