Give us Rest.

It's been a long, long couple of weeks for us.

Weeks filled with meetings, homework, deadlines, and all sorts of "last things."

Week with too much coffee, not enough sleep, and hardly enough space to breathe. To think. To pray. 

Fortunately, we've been reminded of this song in worship twice in four days -on Sunday morning by our friend Tyler, and again last night by our friend Zach- that God alone knows how best to restore, renew, and revitalize God's children to live out our calling in the world.

And that is an encouraging thought! 

Oh great God, give us rest.
We're all worn thin from all of this.
At the end of our hope with nothing left,
Oh great God give us rest.

Oh great God, do your best.
Have you seen this place? It's all a mess.
And I've done my part too well I 'fess.
Oh great God ,do your best.

Could you take a song and make it thine,
From a crooked heart twisted up like mine?
Would you open up Heaven's glory light?
Shine on in and give these dead bones life.
Oh shine on in and give these dead bones life!

Oh Great God, Give us Rest, David Crowder Band
