Advertisers know only too well that we are restless and full of desire – especially during this season. If you buy this product, your longing will be satisfied. A bigger home, another car. A younger face. And it lasts a while – but then we long for more. The restless heart cannot be so easily satisfied. This longing and this restless desire are planted in us by God; they are divine homing-instincts. So if you are right now feeling restless, if you have a desire for you’re not sure what, don’t try to fill it with something. See it rather as your inner response to God seeking you, drawing you home.
