Restless (Switchfoot)


We are all on a journey during which, more often than not, we are searching for rest, searching for peace.  Yet, if we embrace the yoke Jesus offers, the discipleship that teaches us to love, first and foremost, then we will experience connectedness and realize that it is in our weakness, in our vulnerability, in our desire for God’s love and for love of other, that we fully realize what it means to be a Christian people.  And thus we will find rest.  As this song from the alternative rock band Switchfoot demonstrates, we are all restless, waiting for God, waiting for Love, longing for connection with the divine being whose love surpasses all human love.  We are restless, until we allow ourselves to rest in God’s arms.
