Can I Be Honest?

Can I be honest with you? Right now in this moment I am so weary, so exhausted, so worn down by life. I just need rest. I need a place to cast my cares, a place to lay my head. I need shelter from the storms raging all around me. I need someone to say, "Peace, be still."

I have do have that place, at the foot of the cross. A place where my soul can find rest and my heart restoration. And so I cling to that today. I cling to the promise that tomorrow will be better than today, that sunshine follows the rain, and that joy comes in the morning.

I Am

oh weary, tired and worn, let out your sighs
and drop that heavy load you hold 'cause Mine is light
I know you through and through; there's no need to hide
I want to show you love that is deep and high and wide


'cause I am constant; I am near
I am peace that shatters all your secret fears
I am holy; I am wise
I'm the only one who knows your heart's desires
your heart's desires


I am constant; I am near
I am peace that shatters all your secret fears
I am holy; I am wise
I'm the only one who knows your heart's desires
your heart's desires


oh gently lay your head upon my chest
and I will comfort you like a mother while you rest
