Take Me Back to You


Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes. ~Psalm 37:7

Today my heart yearns for my Lord. There is so much unrest in my world, my country, my community, and my church, but none of that would matter as much if there was not unrest in my own heart.

I aptly named this blog. I need a sanctuary with my Lord. I need Him to take me back to Him. I need to rest in Him. This is another song from the Streams album I wrote about in my very first post. It heals me. It brings me back to those times when I lay awake frightened in the night as a child in contrast to the immediate peace I had never before known at the moment I invited Jesus into my heart at eleven years old.

Sometimes we all just need to go back to the beginning, the Alpha, our First Love and rest in Him. I hope this song will be as inspirational to you as it has been for me.




I Will Rest In You ~Jaci Velasquez

Lord, I'm in the dark,
Seems to me the line is dead when I come calling.
No one there, the sky is falling;

Lord, I need to know.
My mind is playing games again,
You're right where you have always been.

Take me back to you,
The place that I once knew as a little child;
Constantly the eyes of God watched over me.
Oh, I want to be
In the place that I once knew as a little child,
Fall into the bed of faith prepared for me.

I will rest in you,
I will rest in you,
I will rest in you.

Tell me I'm a fool,
Tell me that you love me for the fool I am,
[and*] comfort me like only you can,
And tell me there's a place
Where I can feel your breath
Like sweet caresses on my face again.

Take me back to you,
The place that I once knew as a little child;
Constantly the eyes of God watched over me.
Oh, I want to be
In the place that I once knew as a little child,
Fall into the bed of faith prepared for me.

I will rest in you,
I will rest in you,
I will rest in you.


~ My Lord, thank you for calling me back to you, being there when I turn back to you, for not letting me stray too far away from you, and for being my source of peace and rest, my sanctuary. I will rest in You.
