Last week we featured the story of Josh Sales, a Latter-day Saint videographer, who inspires millions with his free music videos of Christian music. Week-by-week we are featuring some of these on Meridian. Today is 13-year-old Jaclyn McDonald singing “Rest.”

Jaclyn says:

Life can be so chaotic! Ups and downs, twist and turns, and everything in between. The song Rest is about how being close to God brings relief. I know that it’s through His perfect love that we can truly be at peace. 

I loved singing this song and testifying that wherever we go there is hope because of our Savior Jesus Christ! My favorite part is the line that through every mountain climbed, and every tear that is cried, he will be by your side. I know this is true and that He is the very light found in the darkness.
