Doing nothing is underrated

Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his apostles didn’t even have time to eat. Mark 6:31

We all need a break from hard work and responsibilities. Often stepping away from a problem or situation lends some clarity and certainly renews energy to deal with it. While doing something fun or filling free time with more stuff to do is tempting,  sometimes what we really need is to do is nothing: just to be still and silent and know that He is God.

Lord, renew and refresh me.
