Day 43

SOLITUDE 

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.
Mark 1:35

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, a thousand things fill your mind and heart. You are so busy, but you are not invincible. Take time to meet Me early in the day. I will always meet you where you are and bring you to where I am. But you must give Me first place. Come often. I will be waiting for you.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Even You needed solitude, Lord. When the crowds pressed in, and the energies seeped out, You recharged with power from heaven. I, too, Lord, need time with You to recharge my spiritual battery—so I can keep going and going and going. Thank You for Your example, Lord.

SIMPLE TRUTH

When you practice the presence of God and pursue His person daily, the performance always follows.
