It was in 2003 that we met Sybil Gibson, a wonderful, spiritual woman, very committed to world missions. She became an intercessor and donor of ours and has prayed for us and given to this work since that time. She also enjoys writing poetry, and this poem applies to each of us as we scurry around our realms with a hurried and sometimes hectic life.
Rest, O My Soul — Sybil Gibson
Rest, O my soul,
Rest in the love the Lord has for you.
Though the winds of life blow
Till you suffer their cutting edge,
Know that in time
The softer breezes will caress you
With God’s own confort.
You will rise up with new confidence
As you receive again
His healing touch,
the balm of heaven.
Rest, O my soul.
The heart of God is always with you.
He is mindful of your needs
And waits to answer your prayers.
Open yourself to His presence.
Allow Him time.
Allow Him place in your day.
He would bring you joy and peace.
He would lead you to a more abundant life.
Come, my soul, join the dance. (1997)
