The Father Has Promised

The Father has promised us rest
In the midst of the trial and test
He will always give us His best
Because He has promised us rest

The Father has promised us peace
He will always set us at ease
All our worries will surely release
Because He has promised us peace

The Father has promised us joy
All our sorrows He will destroy
No enemies weapons annoy
Because He has promised us joy

The Father has promised us hope
Through every trial we will cope
Heaven is ours this we know
Because He has promised us hope

The Father has promised us love
That flows down from His glory above
Throughout life He is enough
Because He has promised us love

Weary Soul

Weary soul
Can you not find peace
Look to the one
Who calms the seas

Weary soul
Can you not find joy
Look to the one
Who never annoys

Weary soul
Can you not find rest
Look to the one
Who says your blessed

Weary soul
Can you not find hope
Look to the one
Who helps you cope

Weary soul
Can you not find love
Look to the one
Who lives above

It’s easy to find myself looking inside my soul and trying to figure out why I am lacking in so many ways. Inside is where my trouble is, after all. My misgivings, misunderstandings, bad thoughts and evil desires all dwell within. They to do not come from outside of me. The lack of joy, peace, hope and rest in my day to day life is caused by outside factors, but it is within me that I have the power to overcome these shortcomings, isn’t it?

I have found the answer to that question is no, it is not a look inside myself that will fix any of those things that stem out of pride. The only way to have those attributes inside myself is to look above, to look to Jesus. He is all of those things and so much more. Lay your burdens at His feet and he will lift you up out of your weariness and into His arms.

Jeremiah 31:25 King James Version (KJV)
25 For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.
