We spend most of our lives searching. We search for the right job, vocation, spouse, house, car, etc. While those are the more obvious things, these exterior wants are often motivated by an interior search for who we are, want to be, and are meant to be. But as Saint Augustine said best, “You have made us for Yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in You.” Yes indeed. Our heart is certainly restless until it rests in God. When we stop frantically searching for the unsearchable in the world and rest in God’s love instead, we find everything we need and are looking for. Ultimately, it is love of God and of neighbor that leads the way to everlasting life.
