Psalm 62:1 “My soul finds rest in God alone…” (NIV)*
My soul finds rest in God alone
Not God and family, friends or home
Not God plus exercise, fitness and health
Not God and money, possessions or wealth
Not God plus books, music or shows
Not God and writing, poetry or prose
Not God plus wardrobe, style or fashion
Not God and hobbies, job or passion
God alone satisfies the soul
My soul’s rest is in God, and God alone.

Any one or more of these “things” can be off kilter and we can still have rest with God. But if we have everything perfect in all these areas and no peace with God, there will be no true rest.
