Where My Soul Finds Rest

In You, Oh Lord, in You alone

In You my soul finds its home.

You are Creator, You are God,

You’re in control, I am not.

You made me, You saved me, You bought me, You own me.

Because of Who You are, I trust You completely.

You gave Your only Son for me, You laid down Your life

In the most beautiful, amazing, atoning sacrifice.

So I could have sweet fellowship with You

And come into Your presence as often as I want to.

This is so awesome to think about, it’s truly mind-blowing

You have provided so many ways for us to always keep growing.

You gave us Your Word so that we could learn about and experience You,

And You gave us the Holy Spirit to become people that reflect You.

The same power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead

Lives inside my heart, my soul, and my head.

You have transformed everything about me,

And the purpose of this is to bring You glory.

You have breathed new life into my soul

And brought me back from the dead, under the Spirit’s control.

In You alone, my soul finds its rest

I trust Your will and surrender because You know best.

My life is in Your hands, I know that You hold me

You keep me and lead me and show me how to be.

Your ambassador, Your daughter, saved to be sent

On a mission, with a purpose, refusing to relent.

The cost is too high, leaving people in their sins

We must look around us at the world through Your lens.

The lens of love and forgiveness and mercy and grace

Always remembering that You sent Jesus to take ALL of our place.

Salvation is offered to every person if they want it.

Bought with the highest price, yet free to receive this beautiful gift.

Let me never harden my heart toward those who’ve not yet come

Into the most beautiful place we can be – in surrender, undone.

This is what it takes to find rest for our soul

The first step toward becoming truly whole.

We must come down off the throne of our hearts

And allow Your sweet grace to meet us where we are.

You will always make a message out of our mess,

This is Your job and it’s what You do best.

Help me be intentional with all that I do

Sharing with the world the hope I have in You.

My prayer is that everyone, all would come in faith

Repent of their sins and turn from their wicked ways.

We have ALL fallen short, we all need Your forgiveness

Once we receive it though, we can come into Your presence.

The Gift that Christ is to me is beyond words

I can’t even express the love and gratitude that You deserve.

So all I can say is that I trust You, Lord, I give You all of me.

I thank You, I praise You, and my soul finds rest in You. Completely.

Amen.

This is what the Holy Spirit inspired me to write this morning to my loving Father. Here’s a song I just found that is definitely fitting with the theme of my poem and the video is beautiful. As you all know, I love the sky and all of God’s beauty in creation. I pray y’all have a wonderful week ahead and that this touches your heart to rest your soul in Christ alone. Bye for now, friends.
