Finding Rest

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

My salvation and my honor depend on God
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.

One thing God has spoken,
two things I have heard:
“Power belongs to you, God,
and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”;
and, “You reward everyone
according to what they have done.”

Morning Soul Dross

Lately I have been struggling with Soul DROSS. Dross is ‘the scum that forms on the surface of molten metal as a result of oxidation’....for my soul, dross are the “uncertainties/ questions/ what ifs/ why’s”... that come to the surface of my soul as a result of sub-conscious & conscious soul searching through the night.

It’s like every time I lay to sleep, a fire is turned on at the bottom of my soul...like metal...the fire melts my soul and all “impurities – read – unresolved issues”....raise to the top as dross. I awake to soul turmoil....and it’s so uncomfortable!!! I churn the issues up and down....try to make sense of them again....some have been buried for so long.....why the heck..does my soul bring them up again??!!!!

The worst stab of this dross, is when it starts to question God, my faith....did I say this was uncomfortable??!

When dross is at full boil, my spirit arises and it’s a tag of war battle....my soul questions God....my spirit defends God.....and it goes on and on...till I cry out to God....and I ask for the war to cease.....peace is what I desire!

God, my father – you have seen all this....please grant me rest. I have said all I know to say...I have groaned and sighed when that’s all I could do!

Father – I am yours. You alone are my help. I look to you alone for rest.You know me…..you see right through me…..I am in great need of you.

Pray with me when you read this. I greatly desire for the dross to be wiped away.
