This week's word is:
00:00 START the timer!
Since becoming a stay-at-home mom, the concept of "alone time" has taken on a whole new meaning.
Alone can be a word that translates to loneliness. Or it can be a word that means peace and rest.
While I treasure the time I have with my sons and my husband, waking up for that special alone time in the morning is something sacred. Usually the word "rest" makes us think of sleep. For me, I feel a rest in my soul by starting my morning in peace, quiet... alone.
Alone time isn't something I am entitled to. It's not something I deserve and some days (or life seasons) it just doesn't happen!
Starting my day in God's Word or going out for a peaceful morning run or just going to the bathroom alone are gifts from the Lord.
Jesus knew that His disciples needed rest and that's exactly what He gave them.
Can you believe they didn't even have time to eat? That part of the below verse is relatable for most of us - especially moms with little ones at home!
Even if finding a little window of alone time seems impossible, go to the Lord and He will give you rest in His perfect timing. He knows exactly what we need!
Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and His apostles didn’t even have time to eat. MARK 6:31 NLT
