Rest – A Poem

By Joan W.



In the beginning there

was a way God laid out

work was completed

and rest came about.


All was completed

by the Spirit alone

then God rested

and He set the tone.


So there is a rest

we must come to

a rest in our God

in all that we do.


For whoever will enter

His God’s rest has

ceased from his works

and gone for the best.


The flesh profits nothing

but life the Spirit brings

if we will live in His ways

we will soar on His wings.
