The Restless Soul

Our soul waits for the LORD,
who is our help and our shield.
- Psalm 33:20
When you are apart from someone you love, you are restless until you are reunited with that person. You long to be with them again, and you wait anxiously, impatiently for that day to come. You know there is something wrong; a piece of you is missing. And you won't feel complete until the pieces are back together.

In the same way, our souls are not at rest until they rest in the Lord. Until we accept Jesus, there is a hole in our heart, and soul is constantly searching for the truth. Deep down we all feel that searching, that longing, even if we don't always recognize it. But when we can admit to those feelings, that's when we're ready to let our souls rest where they long to be; with Jesus.

And Jesus is just waiting, waiting to fill that hole. As much as our souls long to rest in Him, He longs to rest in us. When we allow this to happen, our hearts are filled with His love, and our souls are at peace.
