Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Lead me on

My heart has been restless. I suppose it is to be expected after the last few months. It still caught me by surprise, to discover that I didn't just want, but needed more. The struggle continues to remind myself to rest in Him and that the more I need is Him. I need to stop, slow down. He will calm my heart. And I need to rejoice and be thankful in this moment. He is working in me. He will lead me.

"You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you." St. Augustine

After all isn't His deepest desire for me to follow where He leads and have a heart that believes He will use me.

The Lord says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you." Psalm 32:8

If my heart trusts Him to be my guide and is open to Him leading me, He will. He will reveal the gifts He has placed in my heart for this life. I can come to Him daily and be restless for Him or I can be restless for this life. This life that won't fulfill. I am challenging myself to passionately pursue the one who made me for Himself. To pursue knowing Him intimately and resting in Him. As I do he will take my hand and lead me on the best path for me. He will take me from where I am to where He wants me to be.

Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty." John 6:35
