A Lonely Place by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/03/11

“I love taking care of my family. But when I need that alone time, I always feel like I have an audience. Someone always needs me every moment of the day.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do you ever feel like you’re always surrounded by people with needs? Jesus faced the same thing. Luke 5 says, “Crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses.”

Jesus could not have met the needs of all those people if He hadn’t stayed connected with His Father. Luke 5 goes on to tell us that Jesus often “withdrew to lonely places and prayed.”

Where can you go to get a few minutes alone? If you can get away and spend some time in prayer and the Word of God, I think you’ll find yourself relating to your needy crowd differently.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
