When You Need Rest

A Blessing for You

May you rest in His embrace,
His friendship strengthen you.
May you believe His love,
His kindness make you secure.
May you flourish in His goodness,
His favor pursue you.
May the well of His grace
Give you courage to start over.
May His mighty power protect you,
His generosity make you great,
His faithfulness delight you,
His majesty awe you.

He is the gift
And the giver as well.
His blood will make you right.
His light will give you
All the wisdom and all the guidance
You’ll ever need.
He is for you.
Yes, Jesus is for you.

So, may you dance in His sweetness,
May you never doubt his affection,
May you walk in all His glory,
And may you be bathed in His riches.

  1. Beutiful words. We need those thoughts as we go through these days of shelter-at-home orders. Our church will not gather together as a famiy until June 14th. It's been difficult but we manage to hear from our pastor via daily phone lessons and weekly You tube sermons over the weekends. Last night, the church had a "drive thru" communion service. I didn't attend but I prayed for it beforehand.
