One of the sweet old chapters,
After a day like this:
The day brought tears and trouble,
The evening brings no kiss,
Nor rest in the arms I long for—
Rest, and refuge, and home;
Grieved, and lonely, and weary,
Unto the Book I come.
One of the sweet old chapters—
The love that blossoms through
His care of the birds and lilies
Out in the meadow dew.
His evening lies soft around them;
Their faith is simply to be;
Ah! hushed by the tender lesson.
My God, let me rest in Thee.
~Poem By S. P. Bartlett~
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
The Lord Jesus said in Luke 12:23-28:
The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither
have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more
are ye better than the fowls?And which of you with taking thought
can add to his stature one cubit?If ye then be not able to do that thing
which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? Consider the lilies
how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you,
that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and
to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe
you, O ye of little faith?
We all have bad days. Troubles come-- stress, pressure
and worries-- and how many times do we try to bear the weight
of the world on our own shoulders? We don't have to. We serve a
great God-- One who never gets tired. One who can change our
troubles into triumphs! Our part is to look to Him...Rest in Him!
Our Savior promised to bear our burdens and to help us.
All we need to do is ask...we need not worry.
