“Then I Rest in All That’s Right”

May 22, 2017

He did not fail to confess,

but confessed freely,

“I am not the Messiah.”

John 1:20

“He must increase,

but I must decrease.”

— John 3:30

Joel Hathaway, Alumni Director of St. Louis’ Presbyterian Covenant Theological Seminary, recently wrote this and sent it to me on my birthday. It’s stuck with me and blessed me. With gracious permission I share it with you today —

My Soul unto Thee: A Prayer 

If you grow short, then I’ll grow long—

imagine all that will go wrong:

you’d grow less, while I grow more,

and act out deeds I should abhor.

So I’ll grow dim, let you grow bright,

for then I rest in all that’s right.

— Loud AMEN here, how about you?
