Resting in Him

These days I leave my cell phone in my room when I go to work.

Often I feel like I am waiting for something: a phone call, a text, a letter, an opportunity. I am not content with where I am.

I don’t want to live always waiting for something else; I want to be content in Christ and in who I am in him. The song “Restless” by Audrey Assad is incredible, as she sings about resting in God. I pray today you and I will rest in the One who has created us. Listen to the song here.

You dwell in the songs that we are singing
Rising to the Heavens
Rising to Your heart
Our praises filling up the spaces
In between our frailty and everything You are
You are the keeper of my heart

And I’m restless
I’m restless
‘Til I rest in You
(Oh God I wanna rest in You)

Oh speak now for my soul is listening
Say that You have saved me
Whisper in the dark
‘Cause I know You’re more than my salvation
Without You I am hopeless
Tell me who You are
You are the keeper of my heart

Still my heart
Hold me close
Let me hear a still small voice
Let it grow
Let it rise
Into a shout
Into a cry

I am restless until I rest in You

One thought on “Resting in Him

  1. Thanks so much for your post. I definitely resonate with this, especially since the addition of a smart phone in my life. I long for the phone and Internet-free days of living abroad, in those days I had no phone to check for texts, calls, status updates, emails, reminders, etc. I learned to live in the quiet and to rest in that quiet with my Savior. I think it might be time to institute phone-free days in my life. Thanks for the reminder and the idea.
