“Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mk6:31b. Jesus is inviting you to come apart from the busyness of life and to spend time drawing nearer to Him. In this place of quiet prayer, reflection and listening, plan your year ahead. Making time to come apart and to spend time with Jesus is probably the most important thing you can do. God will help you reorder your priorities and restore the broken areas of your life. He will help you to focus on what’s important so you don’t waste time on less important matters. Spending regular time with Jesus will add the God factor into your life where you’ll see real change as God moves on your behalf in ways you didn’t think possible. Praise God today that as we come apart from our busy lives to draw nearer to Jesus each day, our lives will be profoundly changed as we learn to rest in Him, trust Him and to follow His direction.
