'Til I rest in You

“My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him.” Psalm 62:1

This weekend Hailey and I will be doing a duet based on this very verse.  In the midst of a crazy time in my life, this verse reminds me of the One who can provide rest.   On my own, the best I can do is a few minutes laying down with an ever increasing to-do list running through my mind.  But when I rest in Him- whether that be spending time in the Word, singing out praises to Him, or simply listening- I find true rest.  He is the only One who can lift all of our burdens, allowing us to sit in His presence…uninterrupted.  Below are the lyrics to Restless by Audrey Assad; read them and find time to rest in your Father.

You dwell in the songs that we are singing
Rising to the Heavens
Rising to Your heart
Our praises filling up the spaces
In between our frailty and everything You are
You are the keeper of my heart

And I'm restless

I’m restless
'Til I rest in You

Oh speak now for my soul is listening

Say that You have saved me
Whisper in the dark
'Cause I know You’re more than my salvation
Without You I am hopeless
Tell me who You are
You are the keeper of my heart

Still my heart

Hold me close
Let me hear a still small voice
Let it grow
Let it rise
Into a shout
Into a cry
                                                                                                                                                     
And I'm restless
I’m restless
'Til I rest in You


In Him,
Lindsey
