lessons from songs: rest easy

14 Jan

I’m convinced I don’t know how to rest. whether it be physical, emotional or spiritual I don’t know how to do it. Even when I plan a day of “rest” I over schedule it so much I end up not resting. I also struggle to rest in my relationship with God. I get so caught up in the “what are we supposed to do as a child of God” I forget that he’s already done it. All we are supposed to do is rest in His presence.

This song came on during my drive to work and it was like the Lord was talking to me through my radio.

Rest easy Ruthanne. You don’t have to work so hard Ruthanne. You can rest easy Ruthanne. You don’t have to prove yourself Ruthanne. You’re already mine Ruthanne. You don’t have to hide your heart Ruthanne. I already love you Ruthanne. So you can rest easy.

Insert your name in that paragraph. Do you hear the Lord speaking to you?

Rest is not easy. But we can rest easy in the arms of our Father.

Rest Easy

by Andrew Peterson

You are not alone I will always be with you
Even to the end

You don’t have to work so hard
You can rest easy
You don’t have to prove yourself
You’re already mine
You don’t have to hide your heart
I already love you
I hold it in mine
So you can rest easy

Do not be afraid
Nothing, nothing in the world
Can come between us now

You don’t have to work so hard
You can rest easy
You don’t have to prove yourself
You’re already mine
You don’t have to hide your heart
I already love you
I hold it in mine
So you can rest easy

You work so hard to wear yourself down
And you’re running like a rodeo clown
You’re smiling like you’re scared to death
You’re out of faith and all out of breath
You’re so afraid you’ve got nowhere left to go

Well, you are not alone
I will always be with you

You don’t have to work so hard
You can rest easy
You don’t have to prove yourself
You’re already mine
You don’t have to hide your heart
I already love you
I hold it in mine
You can rest easy
