Leaning On The Heart of God –   Joyce Rupp

I am leaning on the heart of God.
I am resting there is silence.
All the turmoil that exhausts me
is brought to bear on this great love.

No resistance or complaint is heard
as I lean upon God’s welcome.
There is gladness for my coming.
There is comfort for my pain.

I lean, and lean, and lean
upon this heart that hurts with me.
Strength lifts the weight of my distress.
Courage wraps around my troubles.

No miracle of instant recovery.
No taking away life’s burdens.
Yet, there is solace for my soul,
and refuge for my exiled tears.
