Are you weak? Weary? Confused? Troubled? Pressured?
How is your relationship with God?
Is it held in its place of priority?
I believe the greater the pressure,
the greater your need for time alone with Him.
Spending time alone with God is something we all need. Many times in our lives we find ourselves “Too busy” to slow down for anyone. This is exactly what we do need to do, slow down and refresh ourselves by seeking time and help from our God. Jesus Himself is a perfect example of one who took time a way from others to spend time alone with His Father. If we are to be like Him, we must do the same. Consider these verses as an example and encouragement to continue to seek alone time with God the Father.

Mark 14:32-35 “32 Then they came to a place which was named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” 33 And He took Peter, James, and John with Him, and He began to be troubled and deeply distressed. 34 Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch.”35 He went a little farther, and fell on the ground, and prayed that if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him”
