I Long For a Rest

Joel 1:15
Alas for that day!
For the day of the Lord is near;
it will come like destruction from the Almighty.

Day of the Lord – divine judgment of a circumstance and/or the coming of Jesus where there will be
1. Punishment of His enemies
2. Rest and blessing for His people.

“I Long For a Rest”

I long for a rest. A day when there is no sin. A day when there are no tears. I long for a rest. I think of eternity with Jesus. I think of a day when there will be no crime, hate, deceit, murder, and hurt. I long for a rest. It is not the same as a death. The rest I long for is the end of time when Jesus will return. I long for a rest when my body will be divine. Holy is He, holy is what I want to be. This world isn’t meant to be. Sin come by man disobedience in him. Now we live day by day longing to rest within. I long for the rest I will find when eyes are divine. I cannot see what He sees in me. A child wandering in the brokenness. I long for a rest I will get in the arms of His holiness. God has created me to long to rest in His son’s bliss. The Day of Lord will come. I believe in His promises.

I long for a rest.
