As often as possible Jesus withdrew to out-of-the-way places for prayer. (Luke 5:16-Message)
Thinking about feeding my soul set off the alarms for a trip to one of my favorite retreat spots in all the world…and yes…it’s right here in Minnesota! What is strange is that I know it’s one of my happy places and yet I don’t frequent it. Weird…but isn’t that the case for most of us? Jesus made it a priority and regular practice to get to his happy place. I remember reading that George Mueller made it his chief goal to “get his soul happy in the Lord” every day…first thing in the morning! Do a quick check in with your soul right now:
1. are there places you can retreat to that minister rest to your soul?
2. when was the last time you did that?
3. look at your calendar for the next two weeks…how many happy spots are scheduled?
