I'm in the library right now, typing this blog on my phone (which is a first). I'm here, waiting for my son to finish his tutoring session. When I first arrived, I opened my laptop and, thought, "Ah, now I can get some writing done for this book." But not long after, my laptop said, "Nope. I've been working all day, and now it's time to rest." At least it has enough sense to know when rest is necessary. It's no wonder, though, because, as I was driving, the Lord prompted me to write a blog, and I was too hard-headed to listen because, "Lord, I'm writing this book". But here I sit, submitting to His call. He works that way sometimes.


So here's my thought, rest. That's it. That's all I got. God knows it's a word for me at this very moment because I'm about to enter a season where unrest is readily available. Work will ever be present. And the only escape will be in His arms. I feel that if I don't intentionally run toward Him, I'll be running myself ragged in circles, pulling out my hair, and trying to find relief from the ever-present work. More realistically, I'll be jumping into work whole-heartedly, blind to the trap of the hamster wheel, until, of course, I end up collapsing in His arms.


I'm choosing today to be proactive regarding this workaholism mindset of mine. Rest is on my to-do list now, it's on my phone, it's scheduled, daily. Rest from the job, rest from my business, rest from mommyhood, rest from ministry, rest from mind-spinning, rest from scrolling, rest from anxiety, rest from... Yes, I will be notified every day and I will choose to rest in His arms. Who's with me?




THE PRINCE OF PEACE by Yvonne Marie


Look over the waters at the setting of the sun

I am not distracted by any other, you're the only one

Hear the breeze whisper as it caresses your cheek

Come close to me and you'll hear the heartbeat

Of me

The Prince of Peace

Up above, listen, the angels serenade

Sit and dine with me as the waves cascade

No hostility or conflict, no confusion in the mind

Only sound serenity

Only rest and harmony

I want to speak to you of the blessing in store

Hear the waves as they crash against the distant shore?

There is a storm coming soon, can you smell it in the air?

Don't be anxious, or hurried, just cast all your care

On me

The Prince of Peace

Up above, listen, the angels serenade

Sit and dine with me as the waves cascade

No hostility or conflict, no confusion in the mind

Only sound serenity

Only rest and harmony

The clouds are rolling in, and I know it's getting dark

Listen to me! Cast out the fear within your heart

Yes, I see the lighting and the thunder's boisterous

Stop looking all around you, instead, keep your focus

On me

The Prince of Peace

Up above, listen, the angels serenade

Sit and dine with me as the waves cascade

No hostility or conflict, no confusion in the mind

Only sound serenity

Only rest and harmony

There's a sliver in the clouds where the sun is peeking through

For you to see me, and I to see you

The rain is not enough to disguise your tears from me

I hear the cry of your heart, the comfort you seek

From me

The Prince of Peace

Up above, listen, the angels serenade


Sit and dine with me as the waves cascade

No hostility or conflict, no confusion in the mind

Only sound serenity

Only rest and harmony

Look at all the beauty the storm left behind

It is the peace of knowing I never left your side

The sun is shining, and you made it through

The blessing I have is the peace I give to you

I am

The Prince of Peace

Up above, listen, the angels serenade

Sit and dine with me as the waves cascade

No hostility or conflict, no confusion in the mind

Only sound serenity

Only rest and harmony
