Peace and Rest

Slow me down and quiet my heart.

Blind me to the distraction that keeps me from seeing You.

Deafen me to the noise that draws me away from You.

Your hand is visible all around me.

In stillness and peace I can see and hear.


Help me not to live this day to mark it done,

but to live so when it’s done it leaves a mark.


Slow me down and quiet my heart.


About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.
