And Jesus was in the stern, head on a pillow, sleeping! They roused him, saying, “Teacher, is it nothing to you that we’re going down?”
I can’t take it anymore, I am laying down and taking a nap! I need the world to go away for awhile.
Scarlett O’Hara had it right when she said, “I’ll think about that tomorrow. Tomorrow is another day.”
Sometimes, I find myself in situations where I just need to walk away. I need to find my cup of coffee, eat the cookie, buy the shoes or take a nap. My family refers to these as I need a normal minute, please. A moment where the world as you know it doesn’t exist. The world stops and you get off. You excuse yourself from reality.
Jesus did it too!
In Mark 4 we find many stories Jesus was going around preaching and teaching. He had a full day. An exhausting day. Full of people. Lots of needy people! I am sorry dealing with all of those people all of the time always needing things from him makes him a saint in my book.
At the end of his long day, he asked his disciples to escape the world with him.They got in a boat and headed out. It says some other boats followed him. O goodie more people with needs right. What did Jesus do? He took a nap!
What is my point here? Well, that is an easy one. It is OK to just take the nap! We need moments to recharge our batteries. We need moments of normalcy. Jesus took naps. Be like Jesus!
Now, if you don’t mind I am going to go take my nap!
