MANY OF US will have had (or might be about to have) the opportunity of having a break away. For some these can be refreshing times - for others we come back more shattered than we were before we left!

But often it's simply the change of routine and location which makes the difference. All of us need to have a change in order to renew our vision and refresh our bodies.

Whatever these summer weeks hold for you, I trust that you'll be able to take time out to find spiritual, as well as physical, renewal. The Lord Jesus Christ indicated that his followers needed to take time away from the pressure of their everyday activity to reconnect with Him - the source of 'life in all its completeness'. "Come away with me, and rest for a while" was one directive he gave them.. and that's not a bad thing to do!

Even if you're staying at home during this holiday season, make sure you find time to 'rest in and with Him'. Discovering and receiving His peace and rest are crucial to effective service in the days ahead. May you be blessed today.
