~ Awakened to Rest ~
My soul would not be stilled
until You reached down
and taught my heart
to sing the song
it had been made for,
until I heard You
singing it over me,
drawing me and claiming me
for Your own.
A soul at rest
comes only from a heart
to its strongest desire,
from a heart that knows
it is greatly longed for
by the Object
of its greatest longing.
Surely there is nothing so powerful
against a deep and agonizing grief
as a great and passionate love.
"The LORD your God is with you,
He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing."
~ Zephaniah 3:17
"The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying:
'I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.'"
~ Jeremiah 31:3
"'Turn to Me and be saved,
all you ends of the earth;
for I am God, and there is no other.'"
~ Isaiah 45:22
