Vacations are awesome. It is so soothing to remove yourselves from the everyday hustle and bustle of life and RELAX! Oh wait.... did I actually use that term.... RELAX????! Yes I did and Yes I am!! :-)
I am an early morning person and I got up at 6:30 a.m. this morning to begin my day. Sleeping in even on vacation is a total waste of time for me. I enjoy my quiet time when everyone else is sleeping.
Very early in the morning while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed (Mark 1:35).
This scripture is a great lesson for me and my personal devotional life. If Jesus thought it was important to go away by Himself to pray and spend quiet time with His Father, how much more important is it for you and I to do the same? There is just something about solitude with Jesus.
It feels great to clear my mind and listen for the voice of God. I am so thankful today for all that He has done for me and my family. He is such an awesome and incredible God.
Blessings and hugs!
