You are Invited

That day, when evening came, He said to His disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.”  Leaving the crowd behind, they took Him along, just as he was, in the boat… Mark 4:35

Today you are invited to consider when you last went away from the crowds and the demands that are made on you on a daily basis, in order to be alone.  Where did you go?  What did the time mean to you?  How did you feel when you arrived?  What happened?  How did God touch your life?  How did you feel when you left?  Praise God for such an opportunity – and consider planning another time away.   If you have never gone away somewhere alone, what has prevented you from doing so?  What would you need to put into place in order to do this – for an hour, a day, a week?  Ask God to show you how such a time of withdrawal could be possible in your life – then take the first step to make it happen.

May God bless you as you ‘go to the other side’ to spend time alone with Him.

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I do live in the city but make the most of the green spaces that surround me.
