Words We Use and Misuse: Rest … embracing, engaging, enacting

 embracing, engaging, enacting

Psalm 116:7 – Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you.

 One of the things that brings rest to my soul is the song,  Jesus, I am resting, resting.

 

Jesus, I am resting, resting in the joy of what Thou art

I am finding out the greatness of Thy loving heart

Though hast bid me gaze upon Thee and Thy beauty fills my soul

For by Thy transforming power Thou has made me whole

Oh, how great Thy loving kindness, vaster, broader than the sea

Oh, how marvelous Thy goodness lavished all on me

Yes, I rest in Thee, Beloved, know what wealth of grace is Thine

Know Thy certainty of promise and have made it mine

Simply trusting Thee, Lord Jesus, I behold Thee as Thou art

And Thy love so pure, so changeless satisfies my heart

Satisfies its deepest longings, meets, supplies its every need

Compasseth me ‘round with blessings, Thine is love indeed.

Jesus, I am resting, resting in the joy of what Thou art

I am finding out the greatness of Thy loving heart
