The other morning as I was reading my devotional. I started singing – softly: “My soul finds rest in God alone”
He only is my salvation. And on the cross, He bled and He died -that I might know Him forever and I will love him
forever. I kept singing this softly and the presence of God touched me. It was an awesome and beautiful presence
I thought to myself – He loves me – I want to stay here forever, by the stillness of your water.
Let me be with you this way – forever. Guide me Lord. I got up and the reality of the world creeps back in.
The phone rang – I didn’t answer it- people were yelling outside. I want to stay with Him this way but I can’t
and I got sad and angry at the world. Then I remembered the peace that I felt and I wanted to write about it.
Sometimes I need to get away from my desk at home, to be productive, so I went to a coffee shop to write, but at the only place
I found to sit, the sun was glaring through the window. So I moved and as I sat there, the music that day just wasn’t conducive to my writing my book, so I left.
There is no rest in the world. My soul finds rest in God alone.
Well, back to my book. All I need is a little peace and quiet. Some day, nothing at all will distract me or demand my attention, and my book will be finished.
Life itself is my greatest distraction, as I try to write my book about life. I don’t quite understand that.
This I do understand: My soul finds rest in God alone. Jeremiah 6:16
