“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.’”  Mark 6:31 NIV

You know that moment when your phone or computer is not working the way it should?

It’s response time is slow and simple things become frustrating.

Instead of wrestling through it or simply giving up, the first thing to try is always to shut it down and restart it.

Turn it off.

The screen goes blank and you have to wait for it to restart.

It is the same with your mind.

When you are tired or overworked your response time slows down and simple things become frustrating, instead of wrestling through or simply giving up, take a break.

Stop focusing on what you’re working on and take a mental vacation.

Unplug from the world around you and take some time to plug into God’s love for you.

Rest in His grace.

Refill your soul in His presence.

Even if it is just for a minute or an hour.

Whatever it takes.

You will be amazed at the difference it will make.

  1. Thanks! I needed that! I have a tendency to go through devotions like a conveyor belt and then get frustrated that I’m not getting anything out of them. I have often thought of taking a break in between but life is busy so I just press on. Thanks for the reminder that I just need to reboot 😊!
