feeling the need

Sometimes we experience a kind of inner ‘pull’ towards something or someone we do not know. At the same time it feels as though we have always known that person, and he has always known us. This is the call of Jesus desiring our friendship again, or perhaps for the first time. Saint Augustine writing in the 4th century put this unspoken need for Christ into words: ‘Who will enable me to find rest in you?’ We find inner peace, or rest, when we allow our hearts to ‘turn’ and acknowledge our need and the call itself which has been there since our earliest beginnings
