Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give
you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and
lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. ~ Matthew

Life can be brutal at times.
It is what it is.
You never know what the day will bring.
Our faith and hope in God is the only surety we have and He has
promised rest.
He, Jesus our Lord, The Christ, is our Rest.

My husband wrote a song,
He is always in the storm with you
And He sees he pain that you are going through
Don’t you worry, don’t you doubt
He will surely bring you out
He is always in the storm with you
He is our Rest.

That is the rest we have through the mountain and alley experiences of
He is there, an ever-present help, the lifter of our heads, the
He’s our Rest when we’re weary of the way, lost along the path, shaken
upon the stone of steadfastness
He is our Rest when the whys, ifs, and maybes flood what we know to be
true of Him
When all around us seems unsure, He is our Rest.

Calming the storm
Speaking peace to the waves
Somehow righting the ship that is tossed about in the winds
Shoring up the sails and redirecting our faith
Anchoring us in His Rest
He is our Rest.
