The Rest of God

The Rest of God

by: Shirley Satterfield

The Rest of God 🕊

I do believe
In the serendipitous will of God,
Supernatural steps firmly ordered
By the Lord through
A life in His accord.
These days are numbered
In a heart un-encumbered by
Worried care.
It’s the rest of God as
His guest in Zion so fair.
