And Israel had rest from war.
amen. there will always be rest. trials and difficulties never last forever. growing pains always come to an end. no matter how big the fight or how unimaginable the difficulty from the world's point of view, it will always end. sooner or later. only your grace goes on forever. only your provision and strength are endless. there will always be rest, something we can look forward to while we are going through all this, you are the one we keep our eyes on, the prize, the goal, your presence, being with you, our peace, our real rest. thank you lord for real life, being with you, being yours, being in you and you working in us and through us. rest will always come, and rest is always with us, because you are with us and we are with you.
