Distractions are everywhere around us: Cell phone texts, Facebook updates, TV shows or gossip magazines. Whatever it may be, just know that Jesus knows how you feel. He had the stress of the crowd around Him many times and He and his disciples didn’t have the chance to eat. God understands how you feel overwhelmed and the pressure you feel of getting pulled in a million directions. In the book of Mark, it says: “Early the next morning, while it was still dark, Jesus woke and left the house. He went to a lonely place where he prayed.” (Mark 1:35)
Your Lord not only understands how you feel, but He feels the pressure you face each day. So find a quiet spot where you can set aside just five minutes during the day, and ask for a spirit of peace and guidance. You’ll feel the presence of God, because he’s listening and will take care of you.
