A poem about being tired and not wanting
to partake of things that will be
a determent to our spirit.

Rest

by Mitch Kuhn

Oh Lord this life it wears me out
With energy I am in a drought

When I’m tired I just want entertainment
But will this help me get new raiment?

Will it be for me gain
or will it just leave a stain?

I preach to others and am gratified
But will my entertainment leave me disqualified?

During the day I do fight well
At night will  I my birthright sell?

All things are lawful for me
But will they help me clearly see?

Lord you know that I need rest
Please deliver me from this test

In the garden I don’t want to sleep
The fruits of the spirit I want to reap

Help me to be still and wait on you
Only you can see me through
