Resting In Him
Open the eyes of my heart, Lord. Open the eyes of my heart. Help me to see how much you love me. Let your grace flow over me like a river and descend on me with your peace. Let me catch a dazzling glimpse of your smile as you delight over me. Oh, Holy One, find every secret place in me and flood it with your love and mercy.
I give you every worry and fear. I turn them all over to you, realizing that everything pales in comparison to the love you have for me. Let every word and action burn away, that doesn't reflect you. I lay it all down at your feet so that I am unburdened to climb onto your lap, lay my head on your chest and feel your heart beat with love for me.
There is none like you. None who see me and know me and yet love me so completely. I rest in your arms as you pour out your healing balm over my wounded body and soul. There is no lack or pain when I am with you. You are strength and peace to my tired aching life. The works of your hands are mighty in me, to the pulling down of strongholds.
I find freedom and joy in the solace of your embrace. I see things more clearly through the eyes of your grace and my sin falls away as I'm washed clean. There is no place I'd rather be in the quiet moments when I face myself and know that I can only be whole, in you. In you, I live and move and have my being.
