A Call to Rest

Stop, listen, did you hear that?
A voice so sweet, but loud and clear.
“Draw near and hear.”

Pause, lean in, did you catch that?
A whisper so loud it practically screams
“Come closer and glean.”

Sit, turn your ear, are you ready for this?
A message so ancient, it newly awoke
“Linger here and soak.”

Matthew 11:28-30 The Message (MSG)

28-30 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
