Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” (Mark 6:31, NIV).
Taking time to rest in the middle of dealing with difficult problems is not the same as ignoring your problems. We need to take time to rest. That whole Sabbath thing was not something God came up with to keep you from dealing with life. Sometimes the best thing you can do when things are difficult or confusing is to stop and rest and let God recharge your batteries. If Jesus needed to rest, don’t be surprised that you need rest too.
