A quiet place

“…Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:31 (NIV)

…..

My rest is in Jesus

My strength and my song,

No matter the workload—

The day short or long.

…..

He settles my heart

Before the task,

Refills the tank—

If I but ask.

…..

Alone with him

Is surely ideal,

A chance to recoup—

Restore and heal.

…..

Time with Jesus

In a quiet place,

Prepares the heart—

For the hectic race.
