When I was growing up, my grandmother owned a farm. Part of the farm was a beautiful wooded area that was full of hills. It was so much fun to explore. But the best thing about this area was the peace I felt when I was there. In that place, there were no distractions to bother me.
Our Bible verses for today tell us that Jesus went to a special place to be alone and pray. “The next morning Jesus woke up very early. He left the house while it was still dark and went to a place where he could be alone and pray” (verse 35). I think everyone needs a place where they can go and be alone with God. Maybe you can’t go out into the country, but you can still find a place where you can pray and be alone with God. Maybe you can just close the door of your bedroom or find a place in a closet.
I hope you will have the opportunity to be in a quiet place with God today. Read His Word and pray to Him. That is how you can feel close to God!
