I’ll be the first to admit how much of a restless soul I am. Every fiber of my being is restless. And that’s not just because I have Insomnia, either. I’ve always had a longing for things that are greater. Things that are much, much more. I’m the type of person who always wants to be somewhere else, in a constant state of newness. The thing is, this season of my life has been excessively slow. And my soul is not happy with that. It’s times like these that I realize what the American Dream really is- empty hopes and unfilled voids. Since I was a child I never saw my future self living any sense of a normal life, and I’m not going to let this season of waiting change that. I pray that I never settle and never become complacent.
As humans, we were created to be relational. We were created to love and be loved. And we were created for fellowship with our Maker. Anything short of that leaves our souls wanting. We all have a void. And we all choose to fill it differently.
It’s time we stop filling the void with things of this world & run to the One who can make us feel whole.
I suppose our souls will always be restless. Until the very day we meet our Creator.
