My bag is packed and I am ready to go (aren’t those song lyrics?). I wait expectantly for the drive up. I wait for that feeling to take root. The feeling grows stronger with each mile away from home I come one mile closer to the mountain top and I can’t wait. I leave behind menu planning, bill paying, laundry, part time jobs and all the chores that demand my time. It is the time away that regenerates. It is the time away that bring with it new revelations and new pictures of how amazing my God is and I can’t wait.
Did I mention I can’t wait?
MK 9:2 After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone.
MK 6:30 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."
Thank you Lord for your example of service and thank you that you also recognize that we all need a quiet place where we can get some rest.
