"All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure." - Ephesians 1:3-5

Slowing Down to Rest: Mark 1:35
"Before daybreak the next morning,
Jesus got up and went out to an isolated place to pray."
- Mark 1:35
If Jesus needed to pull away from the world to spend time with our Heavenly Father, why oh why do we think we don't?
