I walked into the woods today,
God’s will and heart to find.
I poured my worries on the way.
Searched Him for rest of mind.
As quiet came and stillness neared,
My racing thoughts He eased.
My doubting soul and all I feared
Were ushered into peace.
As voices in my head were stilled
I finally could hear.
His voice my heart with comfort filled,
“My child, I’m always here.”
For thus said the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel,
“In returning and rest you shall be saved;
in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.”
But you were unwilling,
Isaiah 30:15 (ESV)
