"Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction."
Sometimes I think that we find things in life that we want to be our "rest" ... we want that to be where we stop and take up roots, or where we settle, or we want this person or this career to be the "one" that we stay with...
But God has other dreams and plans for us, and our ideal isn't always his. Often we have to let go of the rest that we have dreamed for ourselves because it really is polluted, or destructive... or maybe just impossible because God has something better in store. Rest assured that it will be something better... even if better is unimaginable right now. :) God will never let us down in that regard. The message is clear though... until the end of our lives, never stop searching, because there is always more. We can't stop and become complacent because there are always things that the Lord would have us do, and Zion to build. Today, let’s remember to arise and get on with it. We’ll find our true rest eventually.
