He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” Mark 6:31
At times in our busy schedules we may feel pulled in different directions by competing responsibilities. Jesus understood the demands made on His followers and the need for rest. Returning from a travelling ministry, the twelve reported the wonderful things God had done through them. But Jesus responded “come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.”
Beloved of God, what responsibilities are pulling on you today? Is it job,? family? politics? technology? social? finance? etc,
I pray for us, it is expedient/important to take a rest to rejuvenate our bodies and soul for more fruitful service to God and humanity.
As you plan a period of rest, God will help you to find a place to rest your weary body and restore energy for your soul.
God will speak to you in the quiet of your rest and touch your life to make it beautiful.
May this be an awesome day for you to remember for good through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
