“Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” Mark 6:31. After Jesus’ disciples completed a demanding time of ministry, Jesus encouraged them to rest awhile. Jesus heeded His own advice. After a long, busy day of meeting the needs of the multitudes Jesus sought renewal in prayer with His heavenly Father (Mark 6:34). Jesus is always with us whether life is hectic or calm, but there is great value in taking time each day to spend quiet time Him. Time spent with the Lord is always time well spent.
