Rest O My Soul

I sit at my kitchen table with my hands clasped around my warm mug full of fresh brewed blueberry coffee. The steam billows beneath my nose as I gaze out the bay windows of my kitchen to the gorgeous trees whose leaves have changed to golden hues. My Bible lays open in front of me to Psalm 116:7…

“Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.”

Thank you Lord for,

the peace you bring,

the love you give,

the mercy you bestow.

Through the good,

through the bad,

life lessons learned,

as you guided,

this sometimes wayward soul.

You fill my cup,

with an everlasting joy,

of heavenly proportions.

No matter what circumstance

I may face,

on any given day,

I know I am loved,

by my Abba!
