Never Enough





Great are you, O Lord, and exceedingly worthy of praise; 
your power is immense, and your wisdom beyond reckoning. 
And so we men, who are a due part of your creation,
 long to praise you – we also carry our mortality about with us, 
carry the evidence of our sin and with it the proof that you thwart the proud. 
You arouse us so that praising you may bring us joy,
 because you have made us and drawn us to yourself, 
and our heart is unquiet until it rests in you.
~St. Augustine



It is never enough and it will never be enough...

Teach us to number our days aright, 
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:12

Almighty God,
you have made us for yourself,
and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you:
pour your love into our hearts and draw us to yourself,
and so bring us at last to your heavenly city
where we shall see you face to face;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

  3. "Our hearts are unquiet until it rests in you." A strong, true statement.

    Your blog is so peaceful with the songs of the oceean.
