Warrior Poet Circle: Rest Works
Rest is easy to those who have attained
But to those who strive it’s a dream despised
Closer, they approach, but it falls out of grasp
Security fades with each new possession to protect
Greater knowledge uncensored brings unruly madness
Unbelief comes to ice hearts and spur rebellious minds
What then can be done? Is there truly rest to find?
Yes, in diligent faith and confident boldness
In obedient trust to the word of the Father
In the quieting of storms and mental furies
This is rest that abides, but not in passivity
But wide-eyed, alert compassion and victory
It’s not just about refraining but engaging
Heaven’s rest is secure
Heaven’s rest works
11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same example of disobedience.12 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. –Hebrews 4:11-12
