“I Rest in Thee”

One of Brenda’s favorite songs is “I Rest in Thee” by Rickie Byars Beckwith where these lyrics can be found: My destiny has been fulfilled by you, filled by you, oh God. My search is over and I rest in thee. My search is over, and I rest in thee. These beautiful lyrics resonate with Brenda’s declaration of freedom from belief in separation and fear. Brenda’s spiritual practice embraces the “allness” of God/Spirit/Life, and allows her to rest in assurance of divine wisdom, love, and guidance.
