Restless

Is it the spring about to errupt? Is it my heavy heart?

Restless

Blanket of Fog, Mill Valley, California

There are times when my heart is simply gloomy and heavy. Thick ribbons of fog seem to fill and surround it. And at times, it almost suffocates me.

But there is a chance of rest – when I gather all strength to crawl to the Cross, resting in God’s comforting and reassuring arms. Waiting for the gloom to pass.

And a silent, exhausted prayer erases from the depth of this deceiving heart of mine…

 

“I Shall Not Want”

From the love of my own comfort

From the fear of having nothing

From a life of worldly passions

Deliver me O God

 

From the need to be understood

From the need to be accepted

From the fear of being lonely

Deliver me O God

Deliver me O God

 

And I shall not want,

I shall not want

when I taste Your goodness

I shall not want

when I taste Your goodness

I shall not want

 

From the fear of serving others

From the fear of death or trial

From the fear of humility

Deliver me O God

Deliver me O God
