A time of pulling away from the process of production is seen in the bare branches of trees during cold winter months. The ocean takes a rest between the ebb and flow of the tides. The hibernation of animals both protects and prepares them for another season. All creation calls for SLACK TIME.
Athletes are no exception…they too need some SLACK TIME to carry on with competition. Slothfulness is not an option, however times of patient pulling away and re-grouping are required to be at the top of their game.
“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” Leo Tolstoy
After a busy day of ministering, Jesus said this to his followers:
“Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place. Mark 6:31&32
Are responsibilities taking center stage in your life? Slack time spent with Jesus in charge is both acceptable and necessary to renew your body and spirit. This timeless rest, away from regular routine, always produces clearer direction and renewed energy.
PRAYER: Dear LORD, please meet me for SLACK TIME with you. I need your rest, your guidance and your strength to move forward. Thank you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
DON’T SLACK OFF – PLAN A SOLITARY PLACE WITH JESUS!
