TAKE TIME TO REST

Rest area on US 31.

I think we all have taken  trips too long to make it without stopping at a rest area. We need to get out of the car and stretch our legs, use the facilities, maybe even have a picnic lunch. We have to take a break. With the busy lives we have these days we also need to take breaks, to get away from the rat race even if it’s just for a few minutes. “Then, because so many people were coming and going that they ( the disciples) did not even have a chance to eat, (Jesus) said to them, ‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest’.” (Mark 6:31) We can find rest in Jesus Christ. How do we find that rest? Spend time everyday reading the Bible. As we read and study God’s Word His peace will fill us. Then we can get back to our hectic lives with renewed energy. Everyone of us needs a time of rest with God. Start today by taking some time in a quiet place, just you and God, and rest in His Word.
