Restless Heart

Today I my heart is restless.

Maybe it has something to do with 
Moving 18 times before I was 18.
A father who drove truck cross country
Travelling and seeing the beauty of God's creation
Maybe I have forgotten 
All of the things that God has given to me
What it means to be content.
That He has a plan, even when I do not see it.
Our Father is the giver of all good things

 It is not that I am not thankful for everything that I have been given, it's just that I don't want to miss any opportunity that the Lord might offer. I am restless to feel his presence, to sense his direction and leading. To live in that sweet spot of life, in the palm of His hand.   

Philippians 4 tells us how to be content. I love how the amplified version says it.

Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them]. Philippians 4:6-8

Being restless is a way that God stirs my heart to follow hard after Him. 
Thank you Lord!
