A Poem I love: For the one who is tired…by Grace Noll Crowell

For the One Who Is Tired

“Dear heart, God does not say
today, “Be strong!”
He knows your strength is
spent, He knows how long
The road has been, how weary
you have grown;
For He walked the earthly
roads alone,
Each bogging lowland and each
long, steep hill,
Can understand,

And so He
says, ‘Be still
And know that I am God.’ The
hour is late
And you must rest awhile, and
you must wait
Until life’s empty reservoirs fill
As slow rain fills an empty,
upturned cup.
Hold up your cup, dear child,
for God to fill.
He only asks today that you be

-Grace Noll Crowell
