Northwest Trip (3)

My wife and I had to travel long distances on our Northwest Trip. We drove from eight to eighteen hours every day. One thing that helped us was to stop and rest for a short time. Sometimes we rested when we got gas for the car. Other times we took a short walk or exercised. Most of the time, we just relaxed or took a nap in the car.

On our trip, my wife and I needed physical rest. But sometimes we need spiritual rest, too. Often we may become so busy doing things that we don’t have time to communicate with God. When we communicate with God through prayer and Bible study, we receive spiritual rest. That is the kind of rest that Jesus talked about in our Bible verses for today.

Think about your life. Are you sometimes too busy to communicate with God? Learn to depend on Him. He will give you spiritual rest. Then you will be a stronger Christian.
