Board the boat

It’s time to board the boat.

You have to rest to be your best. Even Jesus believed in rest. Check out what he said to his close friends after a very long season of intense service to others.

He wasn’t being lazy, irresponsible or staging a cop out. No, Jesus was following his daddy’s example. He appreciated the benefits of a good afternoon nap.

Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” –Mark 6:31

Jesus and his apostles had gotten so busy that they didn’t even have time to eat.

The passage goes on to say, “They left by boat for a quiet place, where they could be alone.”

Is it time for you to breakaway, board a boat and be alone with a few great friends and the Creator?

We all have busy seasons and hard work is a good thing. But if a busy season never ends, we are certain to burnout like a sizzling never ending summer.

Don’t forget to board your boat and drift away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Find that calm cove, that resting place where you can unplug and just be.

Rest is not a luxury. Rest is a necessity.

When you are tempted to burn a little more oil, light the other end of the candle or to go that extra, extra mile, remember, the words of Jesus, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.”

Yes, you have to rest to be your best!

Learn to be a “restler” when you wrestle with whether or not to take a break.

If you don’t break, you are on your way to being broken. Hit pause and board the boat.
