Dear Restless Heart - A Poem of Encouragement

 

Dear restless heart, be still; don’t fret and worry so;

God has a thousand ways His love and help to show;

Just trust, and trust, and trust, until His will you know.

 

Dear restless heart, be still, for peace is God’s own smile,

His love can every wrong and sorrow reconcile;

Just love, and love, and love, and calmly wait awhile.

 

Dear restless heart, be brave; don’t moan and sorrow so,

He hath a meaning kind in chilly winds that blow;

Just hope, and hope, and hope, until you braver grow.

 

Dear restless heart, repose upon His breast this hour,

His grace is strength and life, His love is bloom and flower;

Just rest, and rest, and rest, within His tender power.

 

Dear restless heart, be still! Don’t struggle to be free;

God’s life is in your life, from Him you may not flee;

Just pray, and pray, and pray, till you have faith to see.

Now try the poem changed to be a note from God
 

Dear restless heart, be still; don’t fret and worry so;

I have a thousand ways My love and help to show;

Just trust, and trust, and trust, until My will you know.

 

Dear restless heart, be still, for peace is My own smile,

My love can every wrong and sorrow reconcile;

Just love, and love, and love, and calmly wait awhile.

 

Dear restless heart, be brave; don’t moan and sorrow so,

I have a meaning kind in chilly winds that blow;

Just hope, and hope, and hope, until you braver grow.

 

Dear restless heart, repose upon My breast this hour,

My grace is strength and life, My love is bloom and flower;

Just rest, and rest, and rest, within My tender power.

 

Dear restless heart, be still! Don’t struggle to be free;

My life is in your life, from Me you may not flee;

Just pray, and pray, and pray, till you have faith to see.
