Christian, the hot day of weariness lasts not forever.  The sun is nearing the horizon.  It shall rise again with a brighter day than you have ever seen upon a land where they serve God day and night, and yet rest from their labors.  Here, rest is but partial.  There, it is perfect.  Here, the Christian is always unsettled.  He feels that he has not yet attained.  There, all are at rest.  They have attained the summit of the mountain.  They have ascended to the bosom of their God.  Higher they cannot go. – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), from a meditation on Hebrews 4.9.
