Do I resume my hurried pace or listen for God's voice?
I'm too busy pleasing others and working dawn 'til night.
Yet still I feel an emptiness at the end of each long day
My head it meets the pillow and I forget to pray.
Yet still, you love me as I sigh and give reason for my days
You understand my weakness and you know my fragile ways.
"Rest, my child. Be still and know..." God whispers to my heart
I know the way that I should go, yet I find it hard to start.
Sometimes the clutch around my soul brings fear with no releasing
So equip me Lord with prayer and peace; remind me of your Son
Jesus, in His gentle way. Tell again what He has done.
When my mind is stayed on Him a stillness fills my soul
The busyness or wordly quest no longer is my goal.
So as I seek Your still small voice in every thing I do
My motivating urgency will be to worship You.
As I pray a calmness comes and makes my heart rejoice
An urgent need to look to God and hear that still small voice.
Bless you Jesus as you wait with patient love for me
Lessons learned remind me that Your grace has set me free...
