Forever Restless

Forever RestlessThe heart desires to know truth.  In some endeavors, when knowledge is attained, the heart is satisfied and can rest.

In the endeavor to known God, the heart is forever restless.  For the desire to know God is written on the human heart by God, but full knowledge of God can never be realized.  For how can the finite contain, comprehend, or possess the infinite?  How can the imperfect, fully appreciate the perfect?

God continually reveals Himself to the seeking heart with eyes that seek to see Him and ears that desire to listen to His words.  The heart hopes to gain knowledge and possession of what it desires through its relentless seeking of God.  It is through hope that faith is perfected.  As is so eloquently stated in Hebrews (11:1), “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”

    Our hearts are restless… I have always loved that quote from St Augustine. It is so true. I am always searching for God. God Bless.
