Can I rest here awhile Lord?

Can I lay my head upon your lap?

Will you brush aside the strands of my hair and whisper, I love you?

Can I worship you in silence and not feel like I have to perform?

Will your love still abound if I say nothing?

I long to know that being with you, in your presence, is enough.

Can I lay my armor down for awhile Lord?

The armor of defense I often wear to survive in this uncertain world.

Shall I rest in silence knowing you will take care of me tonight?

You are the Vine, the core, the strength. 

I am merely a branch weak and frail, though you say I am vital.

Am I vital enough to be grafted into your heart tonight Lord? 

Are you strong enough to hold me, let me rest and give me peace?

Yes...I believe you are.

"For all the promises of God are yes and amen" (2 Corinthians 1:20)

Very inspirational piece. Keeping a straight path, especially in today's world, is quite a weary task but with faith and love we can endure.

this was reall y soft and nice Monica, I think that you are right, so often, there is the put on, ya know, attempting to loose oneself to the degree that one actually loses oneself, and the soul no longer enticed or with it. I guess it can happen with any thing of beauty, which demands, slowness, and even with God, I think we have to be slow, if we get too excited, it just become excitment, till we get worn down enough to know again what we should and aught to be doing ty al
