Yesterday I accomplished nothing. I did participate in Blogger Chat, but other than that all I did was rest and watch movies. But I was following doctor’s orders, for once, for post operation care. He told me, “just rest over the weekend and you’ll be okay.”
There are times our physical bodies need rest. There are also times we need rest spiritually, We need time with God, with Jesus, away from the business of life. Jesus needed that when he was on earth. In Luke chapter 5 sandwiched between accounts of miracles by Jesus is the short verse 16:
But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
Jesus took time away from the crowds, away from the demands of life, and prayed in places where he could be alone.
If Jesus needed time alone with God the Father, how much more do we need time alone with God?
So today will be another day of physical rest for me and also spiritual rest. I will watch worship service online, take time to be with Jesus, and then relax the rest of the day.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
