“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.”
We experience peace in our souls when we surrender our wants, desires, longings, and cravings and simply rest in God with life as it is. Striving for our wants is the root of the disturbances in our hearts. Solomon tells us that all of that striving is like chasing the wind. We will never be satisfied in our souls with our wants, because the heart always wants more. Jesus invites us all to come to him and find true rest for our weary souls.
Be still today and rest in the green pasture and drink of the quiet waters of the love of God.
