Turn, O Lord

Turn, O Lord, save my life; deliver me for the sake of your steadfast love. For in death there is no remembrance of you.  
—Psalm 6:4-5a

If my greatest happiness is found in God, then my profoundest hope is that, in Christ, death has been destroyed. For in death, there is no knowledge of God, and there would be no happiness beyond life as we know it.  Therefore I pray with Augustine: 

Everlasting God, in whom I live and move and have my being: You have made me for yourself, and my heart is restless until it find rest in you. Visit my heart and make there a dwelling for yourself that you may live in me and I in you, forever and ever. Amen.
Augustine of Hippo
