In our rushed, high-stress, high-achieving culture, many of us feel over-worked, over-tired, and spiritually depleted. We know we need to spend more time with Jesus. We want to spend more time with Him. But are we willing to risk disappointing someone or perhaps letting a ball drop in order to simply rest in the presence of our Savior? Sometimes, spending time with Jesus will be the most courageous thing we do all day.
