Voice of the Day: Augustine of Hippo

old rugged crossI shared this quote about four years ago, but it’s one of my favorites, so I’m going to share it again:

“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.” —Augustine of Hippo (Confessions)

We can search for meaning in all kinds of things and all sorts of places, but we will remain restless until we find the true meaning of our lives in God. I know this to be true, but somehow I none-the-less find myself searching elsewhere. I long to get to the place where I can find rest content in the grace and love of God.
