Get some REST!
Shabbat Shalom again! We have reached another Friday which means a verse about REST!
There were so many people coming and going that they couldn’t even take time to eat, so he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a place where we can be alone, and you can get some rest.” (CJB)
Jesus was with His disciples. SOOOO many people were coming that they couldn’t take care of themselves! Jesus basically commanded them to “Come with Me” and let us get someplace for some REST! He said, “we need to be ALONE.”
Sometimes we are so crazy busy in our lives that we forget to take care of ourselves! Sometimes we care so much for others that we don’t eat right, or sleep well. Our brains never truly turn off.
There are times that we must “get away” and be alone in order to truly REST. Sometimes a walk will help. Sometimes we need to leave for 24 hours. Sometimes it requires a week! What we do know, Jesus required TIME ALONE to REST and so do we.
This weekend I challenge you to STOP and reflect on what you should do to rejuvenate yourself. What habits do you need to incorporate into your schedule and what kind of “time alone” do you need to make a priority.
YOU are IMPORTANT and YOUR body needs rest!
