“Because of the crowd he told his disciples to have a small boat ready for him, to keep the people from crowding him.”
Have you ever used food to numb your emotions even without realizing it? Or may drunk too much to seeming get your groove on? I know that a lot of times we use the wrong kind of getaway to not face the difficulties in our lives or when we do not see an alternative way out.
There is sure nothing wrong with making time to unwind. As you can see even Jesus realizes the value of solitude and recharging. We just have to make sure that our boat is the right one just like making sure when we get on the metro we go in the right direction or we will end up even further away from our destination.
Prayer: Our father I pray that today you give me the strength to keep going the right way and give me the spirit of discernment when I do make a right turn so I can refocus and get back on track. Amen.
