Topic: Rest (01/17/13)

TITLE: I'm Too Busy Resting

I am resting while—
I am waiting,
I am hiding
I am watching
I am praying
I am singing
I am anticipating

A never ending circle of
Always waiting
Nonstop visiting
Never stopping
Never slowing
Hands lifting
Worship offering

Resting is exhausting
Pacing;
And playing;
Waiting;
And lying;
Baking;
And serving;

What am I forgetting?
Rest
Peace
Stillness
Quiet
Solitude
Calm

Peace and solitude?
I can run away
Escaping
Fleeing
Seeking
Praying
Listening

Be Still
I am sorry?
I can’t just…be still
Peace, be still
That works on storms
I do not know if that
Really works for me
~~
Dedicated to all of us who claim they are too busy to be truly still and rest in God’s presence.
“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10

This is a great piece. My body or schedule isn't too busy but sometimes my mind gets too busy and it is those times I need the resting in God's arms the most.

Excellent use of gerunds. This poem has a great pulsating flow to it.
