Seeking peace and rest

Turmoil seems to dominate the news. World events leave us feeling stressed. Our anxieties rise as we watch and wait on the Lord. In these moments of chaos, I long to find peace and rest. Recently, as I pondered my overwhelming feelings, the Lord gave me the idea for a poem to remind me that I can only find peace in Christ. I hope you enjoy this different blog today.

Seeking Peace and Rest

The world appears full of darkness and sin,
These problems cause our sorrow to begin.
We seek and search to find peace for our souls,
God sees us as we struggle through the tolls.
If we watch He will offer us each a sign,
A smile from God provides us a life-line
God says, “Come to me and find your rest.”


Rumors of wars spread thru the lands,
My heart fears and I wring my hands.
Where should I go to find my peace,
I offer up prays for the strife to cease.
Suddenly, I see a dove circle in the sky,
A smile from God to remind He is nigh.

God says, “Come to me and find your rest.”


The skies darken, and the winds howl,
Snows, tornados, or hurricanes growl.
Where should I go to find shelter from these storms,
God, please save me from each new danger that forms.
Soon, I notice a crocus bloom appear in the snow,
A smile from God showed me His mercies still flow.

God says, “Come to me and find your rest.”


Evil lurks in the darkness of the night,
Demons wait to prey on children of light.
Where can I go to escape from my sinful way,
I pray for God to save me each and every day.
The stars and moon twinkle their reply,
A smile from God lighted the night sky.

God says, “Come to me and find your rest.”


Death and disease in our world abound,
Impacts on every family can be found.
Where can I hide from the effect on my strength,
Please God, help me find healing at any length.
A doctor calls with good news on my test,
A smile from God made my life feel blest.

God says, “Come to me and find your rest.”


Worry won’t a single day of life add,
Pointless to waste time feeling mad.
God provides us refuge for all life’s demands,
We ask to place all our problems in His hands.
Watch daily for the wink of love from God,
His loving grace offered will leave you awed.

God says, “Come to me and find your rest.”
