Restless

I’m pretty good at juggling. Always have been. I’m not sure if it’s just part of my nature, or if it’s something I developed after having 4 kids, a job, and ministry. Regardless, it’s a fact. But the last week the juggling that is usually a joy has become a strain. I feel like at any minute I’m going to make one wrong move and drop everything. And it’s stressing me out.

I can always tell when I’m overly stressed because I find myself clinging to my lifeline of music. I’ve always said life should be a musical, but in the trenches music moves from the background to the forefront. Friday God sent me a song. It’s beautiful, peaceful, full of hope!

Yet this morning I realized that there’s a big difference between a song and a musical. Songs are sung, musicals are acted out. And if I really want my life to be a musical then it’s time to put on my dancing shoes and put some action behind the words. It’s not enough to sing of resting in Him. I. Must. Rest. In. Him!

So today that is my goal. To stop juggeling long enough to rest. To find peace again.

Are you restless? Tired? Weary? If so I’d love to share my song with you…

Restless by Audrey Assad

Our praises filling up the spaces

In between the frailty and everything You are

You are the keeper of my heart

And I’m restless, I’m restless

‘Till I rest in You, ‘till I rest in You

I’m restless, I’m restless

‘Till I rest in You, ‘till I rest in You

Oh God, I wanna rest in You

Oh, speak now for my soul is listening

Say that You have saved me, whisper in the dark

‘Cause I know You’re more than my salvation

Without You I am hopeless, tell me who You are

You are keeper of my heart

And I’m restless, I’m restless

‘Till I rest in You, ‘till I rest in You

I’m restless, I’m restless

‘Till I rest in You, ‘till I rest in You

I wanna rest in You

Still me heart

Hold me close

Let me hear a still small voice

Let it grow

Let it rise

Into a shout

Into a cry

And I’m restless, I’m restless

‘Till I rest in You, ‘till I rest in You

I’m restless, I’m restless

‘Till I rest in You, ‘till I rest in You

Oh God, I will rest in You
