rest for our souls

I can’t get over that I can’t get over it.
And I’m so ashamed of my own shame.
I’m insecure because of my insecurities.
And I’m afraid of being afraid.

But You, You believe for me what I can’t believe,
And You say to me the things I can’t say.
You love in me what I can’t love,
And You’ll never change the fact that You never change.

So give me humility to realize I’m not humble.
Give me grace to receive Your grace.
Give me forgiveness when I can’t forgive myself,
and give me faith to believe faith’s enough.

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
-Matthew 11:28-30 (ESV)
