“In the morning before the sun was up, Jesus went to a place where He could be alone. He prayed there.” Mark 1:35
The first step towards learning to manage stress like Jesus is to learn how to recharge your emotional batteries. Jesus took time to do this in nature, early in the morning before anything else started in his day. He got quiet and prayed.
What does it look like for you to recharge with God? Maybe you’re like Jesus and need that time before the day begins. Maybe you’re not a morning person, and it’d be better to spend some quiet time at night unwinding and praying. Whatever it is, prioritize some recharge time today!
Lord I quiet myself before you; I want to hear from you. I don’t want the busyness and the demands of this day rob me of the peace I have in you. Refill me, refocus me, and help me to walk through this day tuned into you. Amen.
