Matthew 14:13 “Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a desolate place by himself.”
Some days are harder than others. There are so many things that can get us down. Long hours at work, difficult relationships, financial difficulties, medical conditions, emotional stress and family responsibilities are just a few of the pressures that can weigh on us.
Jesus knew the human condition. All around Him He witnessed human suffering. He worked to help those that were sick and oppressed. But there came a time where Jesus needed to withdraw from public work and be alone.
There’s nothing wrong with just stopping for a while. After the death of John the Baptist, Jesus took a pause.
What a great example to look at when we just need to take a moment away.
