Friday February 13th Mark 1: 35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. Even Jesus took some time off in his ministry for quiet prayer. It is an important lesson for all of us. Take some time for yourself, time to just be alone with yourself and God, time to refresh, a mini sabbatical. You wouldn’t drive your car without filling up the tank and changing the oil when needed, so too, you need to fill up your spiritual tank and take time for prayer to keep life running smooth.  Without it you are doing no one that much good. With it you are refreshed and all those around you will benefit. Jesus took his mini sabbatical where he was at, and in preparation for moving forward.  Sabbaticals are to help us move forward, not simply restore what was.  Perhaps what we all need is a series of mini sabbaticals.  For a mini sabbatical, try going to www.10worship.blogspot.com and sign up to receive a mini sabbatical a couple times a week by signing up to receive 10W via constant contact email, or text 10w to 22828 to have it emailed to your smartphone.
