Luke 5:16 CEV—But Jesus would often go to some place where he could be alone and pray.
Good morning, Family:
It feels wonderful to be back with you again. Sometimes it is so important to take time away from everyone and everything and connect or reconnect with God all by yourself. That is exactly what I have done for the last two weeks. My heart, soul, spirit and mind needed some concentrated time alone with Jesus.
My church family was and is such an integral part of my spiritual health. Even though my pastor has been so faith to continue services on Facebook, I still missed worshipping corporately with my spiritual family. The effects of the void of church began to take its toll. Hebrews exhorts us in the following way:
New King James Version
24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
It is important to realize when you need a spiritual refill. There is nothing wrong with admitting that sometimes you cant pour out to anyone or anything else, until you take the time to get filled back up by Jesus.
If Jesus had to take time away by himself, we most definitely should follow his example. There is a lot going on in the world today. Our mental and spiritual health needs nourishing. Steal away with God to renew and refresh.
Stay close to God. Take time to be alone.
May the peace of the Lord be with you always,
Rev. Marcia Davis
