Saint Augustine once said in a prayer to God:

"You have made us for yourself and our heart is restless until it rests in you.” 

As a young man, Augustine would have fit in well in our current culture.  Like so many today, he fell into the illusion that something other than God could satisfy, could give his life purpose and meaning. It is easy to be completely distracted by the world and ignore the one who can fill us with purpose, joy and peace: Jesus Christ.

Our restlessness is not an obstacle to experiencing God's love, just the opposite. Our restlessness is the best avenue we have for the grace of God to touch and transform us. If you seek peace and purpose in your life, that is God tugging at your heartstrings, saying, look here.
