After spending a long day on the beach, then relaxing by the pool for a time, I came back in to find that dinner was being prepared. It’s not usual that someone other than myself prepare a meal; what can I say, I’m a pretty good cook, and no one cares to challenge me. However, on this day, I found a delicious meal, perfectly created, with an enticing aroma filling the air, and Richard, my husband, was responsible! If you aren’t allowed time for rest, God will divide your time, and carve out a portion for you. When you are married or have a family, your time is not your own, and the demands of a spouse or children will sometimes wreak havoc on your body and weigh you down mentally. But God, in His great love for us, will set aside a time for our rest, and will stop the world from moving when we need a break. Are you getting a break? Pay attention, you may be resting without recognizing it. Remember to thank God for giving you that time, and thank anyone else who may have helped.
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
