My heart has no rest
My mind is full of doubt
not of You entirely
but of me
but of those around me
are we strong enough to do your will?
are we willing to stay the course?
My will wavers
day by day my resolve weakens
how much longer can I wait?
I need your help to stand strong
My emotions are a wreck
on the outside I may not show them
but I am worried
I am concerned
I am terrified
And yet I know that my only hope is the One who gives hope to the hopeless
yet He lingers
I don’t know why, but He lingers
maybe to let my conviction steep completely
maybe the new wine of my faith needs to ferment
Yet my heart has no rest
Maybe it is only the unrested heart that seeks You
the unrested heart longs for Your justice
the unrested heart believes in Your goodness, for good reason
the unrested heart knows the security of Your love
the unrested heart sees You
God, if it is the unrested heart that sees You, may my heart never rest again
Teach me Your ways oh God that may seek You and find You all the days of my life
It is You that I seek to know
It is You that I seek to please
It is You that I seek to serve
Teach me to yield my unrested heart!
