At Rest By Brenda Drake

        I clearly remember a day when I never felt at peace.  I was anxious and worried all the time.  I really did not know such confidence and assurance was even possible.  The more I have learned of Jesus and His work in my behalf the more I am at rest in His care.  Peace is priceless, money cannot buy it, and it cannot be earned, it is God’s gift in His package of salvation.

At Rest

I am at peace, the waters are calm,
As I rest in my God I lean upon.
My destination I already know, He told me about it,
I trust in His Word and I will not doubt it.
He says He leads and guides the way ahead,
I believe what the Word of God says.
When storms arise He provides protection,
He is my rescue, in trouble I expect Him.
My heart has opened wide,
I desire His light inside.
The perfume of praise fills the air within,
I desire to keep its rooms pleasant for Him.
I have full access to His presence; this I know,
Abundantly upon me love is bestowed.
I am refreshed with pure water when I thirst;
Encouraging me when I feel my worst.
He lifts me up when I am down;
Delivering His wisdom, good and sound.
He gives me a glimpse of what lie ahead,
Reminding me I have nothing to dread.
He wraps me in His affection secure;
With everlasting compassion pure.
Because I am at peace with God, my best friend;
I will dedicate today to live it for Him.

Philippians 4:7
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
