…and in this goodness I will rest.

At the end of the day, when the burdens of life begin to bring me down and all but force me into a restless sleep, I will choose you. I will lift my eyes up, for I know that you are my solid rock – unchanging and forever strong. Unwavering, you hold me up. I will think on all the ways you have proven yourself to be loving and faithful, not only in my life but throughout the history of humankind. I will think on all the stories of ages past that lend proof to your goodness. In this goodness my innermost being will find its healing. And in this goodness I will rest.

But the Lord watches over those who fear him, those who rely on his unfailing love. He rescues them from death and keeps them alive in times of famine. We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in you alone. – Psalm 33:18-22 NLT
