Reading: Luke 5: 15-16
Everyone would probably agree with me that we all need time to ourselves. We all need a little quiet time alone where we can collect our thoughts and open our minds. It's often easier to come up with ideas when we are by ourselves, not worrying about other people around us.
At camp, we often schedule "me time" for the campers. It usually is a half hour or so when the campers have to be quiet and have some personal reflection. They write letters if they wish, read their Bible, or sleep. It's time to themselves. Since first practicing "me time" when I was counselor, I often have made it a point to take some time out of a busy day to do something for myself and by myself. It can be very refreshing.
As we read in these verses, Jesus took some "me time," too. He went to places where he could be along to pray. He gathered his thoughts and shared them with the Heavenly Father. In the same manner, we should also gather our thoughts and share them with God.
Make sure you take time out of your busy schedule to be by yourself once in awhile. And make sure you spend tine with God in prayer each day, too. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Moun
