Some days, trying to get going is a little harder. You wake up, have your coffee, but still feel groggy and want to get back in bed. Trying to keep your head in prayer can be tough, but it’s even harder to focus on God’s word. Rest is important and can make a difference in the way you retain the information you hear and react to situations. Our lives are so busy that every minute of our day seems to be filled, even our leisure time is full of activity. Our families can sometimes add things to our agenda, making it even harder to find time for repose. Our plates are full, but Jesus calls us to get away to a desolate place. While the world is begging us to keep going and never stop, God tells us to take time for ourselves. Pray for Him to give you moments to relax and rejuvenate if you can’t seem to schedule it on your own. He wants us to rest, so much so, that it's one of the Ten Commandments!
And he said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while." For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. Mark 6:31
