There is a place of quiet rest

There is a place of quiet rest,
  Near to the heart of God,
A place where sin cannot molest,
  Near to the heart of God.
  O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
  Sent from the heart of God,
Hold us, who wait before Thee,
    Near to the heart of God.
There is a place of comfort sweet,
  Near to the heart of God,
A place where we our Savior meet,
  Near to the heart of God.
There is a place of full release,
  Near to the heart of God,
A place where all is joy and peace,
  Near to the heart of God.

I am starting on a journey to learn to be in solitude and silence with God. This beautiful song has been in my mind since I recently made that decision. His kindness and mercy are so great to me!

Love this song. I don't know how many times I've played. For I know that my God is real and He will come and take me home. Lord im waiting for that day where everything alive will bow down. Thank You Lord for what I have and even for what I don't have. Glory be Your Name.

This song is entering into His rest and feel close, safe and secure in Him to feel His love and to feel His arms around me, nothing can be compared with that. To honor Him. Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you, Halleluah Thank You, Jesus.

I was reminded by a dear friend that if we stay tight with Jesus, that's all we need. I was contemplating those words and I remembered this song I used to sing in church so many years ago. Nothing fills my soul like music, nothing can replace the old hymns.

Having my personal morning worship that I begin with saings and this was what the Holy Spirit gave me this morning.

I was actually equally blessed bybreading everyone else's testimonies! Wow. Thank you and I have prayed for each of you that we all will be saved when our LORD returns; including YOU faithful in the study of His Word only!

John 14:15-31 King James Version (KJV)

15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
