The Rest Within The Running

There is a rest within the running,

a place where worries cease,

an assurance of provision,

of strength and hope and peace.

 

Itís not freedom from the conflict,

nor a path around the pain,

but the certainty of victory,

the grace to count it all as gain.

 

The Portal to this rest,

the means to enter in,

comes through Godís gift of faith,

and repentance of our sin.

 

By fixing firm our eyes

on the One Who promises to give,

His Spirit and His grace

that enable us to live.

 

So, take Him at His word,

race down the path Heíll show,

as you obey, He will impart,

that Rest you long to know.
