The world is noisy.
Our lives are busy.
The distractions in our days are many.
There is much work to be done.
There are many places to go.
There are multitudes of people to love.
We are weary and worn.
We wonder how we will meet all the demands on our lives and precious time.
We find ourselves pulled in many directions.
We are simply unable to please so many people.
The solution is simple, but not easy.
After busy days, the best thing we could do is follow the example of Jesus.
Find a secluded place and spend time in prayer.
It requires sacrifice, surrender, and abandoning our own self-desires.
We need to go against the flow to slow down and slip away.
We need to quit trying to please everyone to withdraw to a quiet place to pray.
We need to remember it is not all about our plans in life, but God's purpose for our lives.
"But Jesus Himself would often slip away
to the wilderness and pray."
