Although we all have different personalities, it is important for us to understand that we all can benefit from ‘downtime’. The need to rest, withdraw and take ‘sabbath’ moments away from the hustle and bustle of life, serve to revive and reinvigorate our lives.
When Jesus heard about the Pharisees words against Him and their intention to put Him to death, He withdrew from them and the location (Mt. 12:14-15). Daily or weekly moments of rest allow us to be attuned to God’s voice, claim grace and be energized.
Loving Father, may our moments of rest and reflection help us to remain steadfast in Your love, and serve as pools of refreshment and strength to work for Your glory. Amen.
