Still Saturday: The Rest of My Life
“There is a rest in love. A pause, a trusting pause before a spinning world. A place of mending when the threads have come undone. Lord, you calm my resisting soul. You hush the voice of urgency, of panic, of alarm. You call down severity, diminish need. You tender me to silence, loving, curing silence. Till the deep filaments of my body are still. Till the blood slows. O let me live in love’s endless Sabbath. Let it follow me in all the tracks I make through this unsteady world. May I know when it calls to me. And let peace in me be generous, irresistible, catching in a world killing itself for the want of it.”
“In Christ, the rest of my life. Amen.”
