Quicksands of Life

When the quicksands of life---
     Whatever that may be----
          Tries to suck you under,
          That just as struggling,
Will ensnare you in real quicksand,
     So also will a failure to rest in Me
          Ensnare you in the quicksand of life.

When you  realize that you are being dragged down,
Beloved, instead of struggling,
You need to rest.

     Rest in Me.
          Rest in who I am.
             Call out to Me.
                 Come to me and rest.
Then, dear one,I will reach down and pull you out from the
     And even more,
I myself will come and wash you clean from the debris of that very
stuff that is so like quicksand.
