A Much-Needed Getaway

A Much-Needed Getaway

The breeze on their skin and the sunlight on the water were just what Jesus and His disciples needed. Jesus’ invitation to come away with Him was a welcome change from their hectic schedule. How good to have time alone with Jesus and to relax together as they sailed! The sound of the waves lapping against the boat and the wind in the sails helped them unwind as they talked with Jesus away from the demands of ministry. When they were plunged back into ministry as they landed, their respite with Jesus gave them the strength to re-engage.

Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place. —Mark 6:31-32

Prayer: Jesus, refresh and reenergize my heart, soul, mind, and strength so that I can serve in Your name, amen.
