Scripture Resource Passages: Matthew 11:28-30
American poet Barbara Veech graciously consented to share these words. I am honored to provide them through the site.
Pause and rest And notice shadowed patterns On a leaf. Listen as the delirious mockingbird Delights in each day. Breathe breezes blown From far away. And… Stop and rest And sway with the timeless rhythms Of dark and day. Taste sweet salt air clinging To your lips. Close your eyes. Let life’s burdens lift. Then… Linger and listen And feel the deep sorrows Of today’s and tomorrow’s Weeping, tired workers giving Life and health and living Back to souls struggling For life and breath and being. So… Mindfully measures your days And treasure life’s difficult ways. Rest in God’s power. This too is his hour. This part of our story Will be for his glory. So, rest. Now rest.
- Ponder while you may with moments of experiencing the wind of the Spirit.
- Are there special places where you find rest-filled life?
