Rest in God- By St.Anselm

Come now, insignificant man, fly for a moment from your affairs, escape for a little while from the tumult of your thoughts.  Put aside now your weighty cares and leave your wearisome toils.  Abandon yourself for a little to God and rest for a little in him.  Enter into the inner chamber of your soul, shut out everything save God and what can be of help in your quest for him and having locked the door seek him out.  Speak now, my whole heart, speak now to God: ‘I seek your countenance, O Lord, your countenance I seek.’ Come then, Lord my God, teach my heart where and how to seek you, where and how to find you… Teach me to seek you, and reveal yourself to me as I seek, because I can neither seek you if you do not teach me how, nor find you unless you reveal yourself.  Let me seek you in desiring you; let me desire you in seeking you; let me find you in loving you; let me love you in finding you.
