A good night's rest is needed
to help you start the day,
and when you're overworked
it's nice to get away.

But the rest that outshines all
begins when you decide
to give yourself to Jesus
and in Him alone abide.

The world can't comprehend
the rest I'm speaking of...
it's free to those who ask
and receive God's gift of love!

God's benefits of rest
are too numerous to count,
poured down from heaven
from His everlasting fount.

Come all ye afflicted,
weary and oppressed,
what you really need
is the Lord to give you rest!


Matt. 11:28 "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
