Yet, I know I can't keep that pace forever. I need to step back and block off my calendar for a few days of rest.
Jesus understood. In Mark chapter six He tells the disciples to come away for awhile. They had been so busy they hadn't even had time to eat.

So, I am going to hear His voice today and take some time away from the busy schedule I have been keeping - to refresh, recharge and refill.
Will you join me? Because busyness calls for rest.
If you have never taken a personal retreat, I encourage you to try it. Get away for a few hours, a day, or overnight to rest and focus on Him. You'll be surprised at how much you need it.
