I will elaborate more on this in the following days and weeks, but I wanted to share a bit about the Men’s Retreat I attended this last weekend. Our main topic was rest, and I must admit, I rarely think about it.
Sure, I sleep, but I don’t often think about trying to rest in a Godly way. However, spending time alone with the Lord — in prayer or in His Word, especially — can pay tremendous benefits to faith. Simply put, we are machines built to run on God, and those quiet moments of thought, prayer and study are effectively like filling up the tank.
I want to do more of that, to be disciplined enough to carve out that time. It’s not easy to do so, especially amid a busy life. But to grow, we must do so.
Lord, help us to focus more on you.
