Faithful as I try to be,
I find myself often falling short.
Distractions, attractions, desires and wants;
Not all of my thoughts are of a good report.
Thank you, Lord, for giving me rest,
Allowing me to gently abide in the vine.
When my mind and heart grow hectic.
I realize I don’t need to rush all the time.
Rather, when I calmly slow down to still,
Pondering your words; kneeling into prayer,
My heart enters peace, my mind tags along,
Once again, of your love, I’m aware.
Make me contagious with this spirit,
Keep me courageous each step of the way.
Thank you for your grace and your mercy.
Always aware and calm, with you I’ll stay.
