This day of rest

Lord, thank You for this day of rest.
So often we sure need it.
Our bodies just get so run down,
Especially when we don’t feed it.
Thank You that You know us better
Than we even know ourselves.
We would be in our graves way too early,
If left to care for it ourselves.
Yet this day is to keep You first too,
And that I certainly want to do.
You are so worthy and deserving of praise.
Please see my weary body’s hand trying to raise.
May Your name be honoured and glorified!
May Your magnificence be magnified!
Praise You God for Your Holy day!
Praise You God for Your Holy way!
I love You, Amen!!

it’s not about me. It’s all about my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I’m in my 40s, live in North Carolina, USA, and love the Lord more than anything. He is the Love of my Life.

This is a lovely poem, and timely reminder of our need to take a break!
