As A Butterfly Rests

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 ESV

As a butterfly rests
In the palm of our hand
When its flower-top flying is past
Jesus calls us to give
Him the weight of our load
When the pace of our race runs too fast

And take up a burden that's easy and light
And a joy as we give Him control
Then listen and learn from His meek lowly heart
That in Him is refreshing for souls!

Keep on seeking

She delicately yet ceaselessly looks for the next flower. Something in her tiny mind whispers, “winter is coming”. She rests each night calmly waiting for sunrise knowing that she has done her best and the rest remains in her creator’s hands. 

Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7
