Can I rest here awhile Lord?
Can I lay my head upon your lap?
Will you brush aside the strands of my hair and whisper, I love you?
Can I worship you in silence and not feel like I have to perform?
Will your love still abound if I say nothing?
I long to know that being with you, in your presence, is enough.
Can I lay my armor down for awhile Lord?
The armor of defense I often wear to survive in this uncertain world.
Shall I rest in silence knowing you will take care of me tonight?
You are the Vine, the core, the strength.
I am merely a branch weak and frail, though you say I am vital.
Am I vital enough to be grafted into your heart tonight Lord?
Are you strong enough to hold me, let me rest and give me peace?
Yes…I believe you are.
