Restless

Let not the wise..

I have but one longing that can never be fully satisfied, my longing for you, Lord. And yet, paradoxically, while it is the only thing I can never fully possess in this life, it is the only thing that gives true meaning to this life.

You are my path and my destination.

“You have made us for Yourself, and our hearts remain restless until they rest in You.” ~St. Augustine

    Reminds me of song lyrics from long ago “Oh restless soul where are you going. Oh restless heart what do you love?” (Journey land…unpublished) St. Augustine was right.

  5. Ecclesiastes says God put eternity in the hearts of man. Another way of saying it is that there is a God-shaped emptiness in the hearts of man.
