That Rest


Rest is the goal

And rest is the promise

First to let go

Of a fool’s unbelief

Doubting and nixing

The God of the Heavens

Brought only heartache

And buckets of grief.

Thanks to that neighbour

Whose smile

Long disturbed me

Spoke of a Christ

Who made all things anew.

Family and function

And purpose a-plenty

That which once

Bothered so

Found to be true.


(Hebrews 4)
