His Rest

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

To be at rest amidst the storm
That’s raging all around;
To feel that in the quicksand
We can still find solid ground;
That is the rest that God has promised
While we’re here, below –
To feel the comfort of His Spirit,
Perfect peace to know.
It’s not a guarantee that there
Will not be trials or pain;
But that, while in the midst of them,
We’re held in Jesus’ name.
For peace that passes understanding
Is His guarantee
When we are resting in His love,
Beneath His sheltering wing.
“Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands,
let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it.
Now we who have believed enter that rest…”
Hebrews 4:1,3a NIV
