Thought for the Day: I am a really bad speller, and when typing fast, I can make a multitude of mistakes of which I can only blame a few on autocorrect. I’m also horrible when it comes to proofreading, especially my own stuff. Years ago, when I used an old manual typewriter for my newsletter articles, I believe it was this passage that I wrote how Jesus went to a dessert place. I think a lot of us offer prayer around dessert, but it’s usually, “Lord, help my temptation.” When the life of faith demands a lot of us, it is necessary to get away and catch our breath. So many people have tried to tell me that Jesus did not really need to rest, he was only providing permission for us to do so. I really need a Jesus who found it necessary to rest his body and spirit, especially after giving so much of self. Jesus knew what it meant to sweat, to feel exhaustion and a depletion of his capacity to give. When you give so much, you’ve got to replenish if you’re going to give more.
Prayer: Let me make sure I’ve got enough within me when much is demanded of me. Lord God, I will need your help to know when to act and when to rest. Amen.
