30 The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught. 31 Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”
32 So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place.
“Holy Spirit, what are you speaking to me about this passage? Is it that Jesus wants to teach me many things? Is it about His compassion or how the crowds followed Him?”
I hear nothing…I sense a stillness. “It is something else isn’t it.”
My eyes are drawn to “come with me by yourselves to a quiet place…”
Oh my, it is an invitation by my Jesus to be restored and renewed.
I am reminded that He really does care for me. Not for what I can do. I let the truth sink in.
I respond. Tonight I am going to bed early to talk with Jesus about all the ways He cares for me…until I fall asleep.
