Like a Chicken Without a Head

Our desire for rest, or restlessness, is very great in our world. We are constantly trying to find something to satisfy us. Something we can rest in. Some of us try and find that rest in money. Others try and find it in another person. Aimlessly working for a goal or desire which ultimately won't give us rest but will make us restless. Spending countless hours each day texting others, sitting on Facebook waiting for a notification, or simply vegging and watching TV. In our constant search for rest, we end up walking, even running, in the opposite direction toward restlessness. Hoping that by having this constant contact with others, or simply just having something to do, will satisfy our restlessness. In the words of St. Augustine "Our Hearts are Restless Until They Rest in You". In our constant search for rest we often over look the fact that true rest can only be found in Jesus. This week instead of running around like a chicken with its head cut off looking for rest, take some time to spend with Jesus. Even if you are really busy! If you make time for Him He'll will make time for you! (There are two ways to read into that statement ;P) Will you Take the Challenge?
