He's placed in us a part of Him that no amount of productivity, goal-setting, or accomplishment can fulfill. God's placed in you and me a spiritual whitespace, a longing for beauty and rest that awakens with feelings of desire or even weariness.
It's in those honest moments of reflection, God's quiet voice still whispers to us and invites us to be known –
You are not forgotten.I know this place where you've hidden. Beneath the busyness. Beneath your unspoken words, I see you. Your heart. Your story. Your questions. Your need. Come to Me. Let Me love you.
When we stop to listen, we can hear Jesus say:
"Come to Me.
You who are weary and heavy laden.
Let Me give you rest."
How is God whispering words of love to your soul today?
