Enter the Rest By Brenda Drake

I used to worry and fret over everything.  Even when all was going well I would worry over what could happen.  Needless to say I did not have quality rest at night or in day.  I have learned it is so much easier to take all that is of concern to my Lord in prayer.  He is able to take care of things so much more and even better than I could ever plan.

Enter the Rest

Such love and laughter – some of the very best,
Is shown by those that in God rests.
Whatever may cause one to stumble or to fall;
As you enter rest I cushion and comfort when you call.
What is as great as what God can do?
Nothing is impossible.  I will take care of you.
My hand is ready always to lead. My eyes never stray.
I will never leave you or turn from you away.
Take rest and know I will take you to the place,
Jesus’ sacrifice has provided under the banner of grace.
Take rest and I will show you there is no one as strong.
I carry you through each problem, and help you along.
Rest in your God, you can in peace go to sleep.
I do not close My eyes on you them I keep.
All things I provide, all asked is for you to trust Me,
So then happily at peace and rest you will be.

Exodus 33:14
And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

Matthew 11:28
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you

Allow God’s Comfort Within By Brenda Drake

       

What a world we live in, there are many opportunities to get upset, worried and stressed, but what a God we have, He is well able to help us through whatever comes into our day. Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit to bring comfort to our soul. 

Allow God’s Comfort Within

It is a choice made each day,
To rush about and do things your own way,
Or to allow God’s comfort within,
As you do your best and rest in Him.
It starts with a simple prayer request,
That asks for God’s strength for you to do your best.
You will know when you have neglected this,
When you feel frazzled, upset, and stressed;
Do not worry it is never too late
Stop what you are doing do not hesitate,
The Lord is willing and able to help my friend.
He is close as a prayer; when you call to Him,
He is your comfort, hope, and strength,
He is the needed wisdom to help the way you think.
Think on things good, kind, and true.
Think on His promise to help you through.
Pray about the future that He holds
Remember He never leaves you and is in control.
Allow the comfort of God to rule your Day.
So you will have lilt in your step as He leads the way.

Psalms 4:8
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep:
for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.
