Rest

When they worshiped
My heart slowed, and my pulse
My breathing, and the pounding in my head
from too much caffeine and too many details.

When they worshiped
God showed me pictures
images and smells and sounds
A beautiful scene of intimacy.

When they worshiped
My heart was overwhelmed
with His powerful goodness
And I lay down to rest.

When they worshiped
I quieted into sleep
And I woke made new
Truly known by Savior-God.

Now I worship
through my today
In the quiet confidence
of trusting rest.
