Amy, Callie and I were able to head to Sunriver Oregon this last weekend for a time of rest, refreshment and time of fellowship with good friends. It is times like these that remind me of how we are designed. We were designed to need rest. We also were designed for relationship. Exodus 20:8-11 is where God mandates that we take time off. Jesus Himself looked for opportunities to be alone and rest from His public ministry. Mark 1:35 we see Jesus seeking opportunities to refresh with His Father. In Genesis 2:18 we see that we require relationships with other people. So often we get lost in the business of life that we don't allow time with God or time with other believers to refresh. Let me tell you, it is needed. It is not optional. If you don't you will burn out. Oh, and by the way, it is Biblical! So take your family and go refresh with other believers and especially with your Heavenly Father! God desires that and commanded that!
