The Restless Heart

"Our hearts are restless until they find rest in you." St Augustine "Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from Him." (Psalm 62:1) Like a wanderer - rootless, aimless, a rover - so too our soul often is. We roam, wander away from God through hurt, discontentment, through apathy, through boredom even.
