As I think about Jesus life and the busy seasons of life he entered daily I think about His priorities and one of them being was in prayer with His Father. I am not sure about you but as soon as I get busy the natural reaction of my personality is to get the job done and then possibly think about prayer
I think of the disciples in Mark 4:38
Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?”
Jesus was so tired that we was asleep during a storm! Sometimes in pur lives we feel as though Jesus is asleep during our storm. Are we not like that at times. As we know Jesus simply rebuked the wind and the waves and there was absolute stillness and quietness. Let me encourage you, when you are really getting busy take some time out to pray the Lords peace and guidance and wisdom as you continue with your day. God has a way of refreshing you as you get busy.
