Traveling and traveling, we seem to always be on the move to somewhere.
To the store, or on a trip but seems life never rest, there is always a mode of
movement.

I stood one day looking out into space, the wonders of that outer world drew
my curiosity, what lay beyond the skies, what held them in space, and where
was the end of eternity, did eternity have an end?

So this human restless spirit set out to look for that un-answered question and
questions of what, where and how.

It lead me to the Bible for I knew it held truth, and that it spoke of creation it told stories
and wisdom that brought the answers to light.

When we travel, we long for rest, even if it is a trip to the store we long to arrive home to
relax and rest.
We are on a journey in this life and we become weary, the trials, the suffering the pain all bring us to
seek rest.
We look for a sign as we travel through life for Home, Hotel, Motel, but there is one sign
that really gives us rest and peace and hope for the human, but Born Again spirit. It is the sign
ahead that says Home. It is spelled Heaven.
The lights and His love, draws our desire and restless soul to that final arrival for rest and
peace of eternity.

While in this earthly body, it will look for places of temporary rest, Home, Hotel or Motel but
My Spirit longs for that final place for eternity to arrive to that place prepared for all who
believe. Heaven

John 14:2-3

I liked the repetition of the theme: home, hotel, motel. You did a good job of conveying our longing for rest. Edit for run-on sentences and sentence fragments, and you will have a very nice devotional piece here.

It's seems your saying come and go with me to my father house.
Awesome Story!

there are some run-on sentences and sentence fragments, but perhaps you wrote it this way intentionally. At first, as I started to read, I was wondering if this was poetry. For me, I would have preferred it to read more smoothly, but that's just me. Awesome thoughts, however!

I really loved the beginning of this piece- it reads like poetry and it's beautiful. When you jumped into more of an "explained" type of writing it lost its pull. Still, its a good submission! Thanks for sharing. Be Blessed.

Good thought process!

I agree, in the beginning it almost sounded like poetry and then got just a tad bit heavy mid-and back on track ending. Very nice article though. God bless ya, littlelight
