In a theatrical production a dress rehearsal is the final rehearsal before the live show in which everything is done as it would be in the live performance.
The simple definition is a practice exercise for something to come.
I couldn't help but think that maybe this life on this side of Heaven (as i like to say) is just one big dress rehearsal in our human form? It's a practice exercise for something to come. Peace with God now. Eternal life in a new place later. Spending eternity with Jesus!
With that said, as we continue our 2019 journey, let's continue to put our faith in God. Rest in HIS promises. Enter HIS rest as we are being prepared for the real thing! What is to come.
As they say in the theater, go for it. Break a leg! It's all good.
Be Strengthened and Encouraged in HIM,
...The promise of "arrival" and "rest" is still there for God's people. God HIMSELF is at rest. And at the end of the journey we'll surely rest with God. So, let's keep at it and eventually arrive at the place of rest... excerpts from Hebrews 4:8-11 MSG
