SONG OF THE WEEK: Restless By Audrey Assad and Matt Maher

Some songs are just true.  Audrey Assad and Matt Maher have captured the yearning that can come from a Christian’s heart for the rest that comes only with Christ.  The melody melts my stress and Audrey’s voice is so soothing and comforting.  But I think the thing I like about this song the most is that when I hear it, I am reminded what that restless feeling inside of me really is.  It’s too easy to get caught up in the buzzing of my life and think my restlessness  can be fixed by getting one more thing done or having 15 more minutes of sleep.  Here’s Audry and Matt’s take on restlessness:

Oh, speak now for my soul is listening
Say that You have saved me, whisper in the dark
‘Cause I know You’re more than my salvation
Without You I am hopeless, tell me who You are
You are the keeper of my heart
You are the keeper of my heart

And I’m restless, I’m restless
‘Til I rest in You, ’til I rest in You
I’m restless, I’m restless
‘Til I rest in You, ’til I rest in You
I wanna rest in You

Restlessness is Ok, as long as I remember where to go to find rest.
