You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.
– Saint Augustine
We each must find our spiritual path. It is an individual journey. Yes, we always have the companionship of family and friends but the journey itself is one of personal discovery and growth. It is a life long study. Let it unfold. Allow yourself to enjoy the experience.
Perhaps God is like a giant jigsaw puzzle. We each have our own piece. It is up to each one of us to discover how our piece fits into God. When each one of us places our piece into God, we become connected to God and to each other. We now rest not only in God but in others. What a peaceful and beautiful place to be!
I also think that it is appropriate that we remove our piece from time to time. We sand it. We shine it. We add new color to it. We plug it back into God and each other. We go deeper and deeper into new levels of love, peace, joy, kindness.
Let your life be one continuous and transformative journey into the depths of God.
Rest in God.
