My day can get crazy!
church it all takes a toll on me.
I end up tired,
and easily irritated.
I am around people every day, tons of them.
All of them have needs and burdens
Just like me.
Desiring to help, I often come away feeling overwhelmed,
In our party society, where going places and doing things
seems to be a hallmark of success,
I am thankful for Our Lords example of going away be himself.
He hid away from the “world” so he could get recharged.
“After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray.
Later that night, he was there alone,”
If the Son of God needed alone time, brothers and sisters
So, do we.
I thank God for the times when I can be alone with him
Even if it means getting up early
Or staying up late just to have that time.
I find myself better able to help others,
When I have found a place to be alone with God.
