Chillaxing: Matthew 14:23

Chillaxing: Matthew 14:23

The group Chicago once sang that “everybody needs a little time away.” Life can be very stressful. People will drive you crazy. There are deadlines to meet and bills to pay. As Jack said in the old Stephen King movie The Shining, “All work and no play makes Jack a very dull boy.”

The word that comes to my mind is “chillaxing”; a combination of “chilling” and “relaxing.” Even the Lord Jesus had to “chillax”. On several occasions, the Bible records that He had to get away from the crowds, the pressure, the opposition and His journey to the Cross. He would retreat to a mountain or a desert and pray. He would “chill out” and relax.

We all need to get away sometimes. Jesus told the disciples to “come apart for a while” and rest. An old preacher once warned that if we do not “come apart”, then we will come apart.

So take some time to “chillax”. Get away from people and be alone with God. Just don’t do it at 11:00 on Sunday mornings; you need to be in a group of believers at that particular time.

    I enjoy my journal and devotion time in the mornings. It helps me start the day off on a good note and then when daily trials come, I am better able to stand in the word.
