Marriage Minute: Rest and Relax for Renewal

“Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.” – Mark 6:31

Jesus often went to the mountains or desert for some rest. The disciples had been working hard and were weary. His disciples needed a break; some rest. Jesus encouraged them to get away from it all. So do you and your spouse. Being able to rest and relax is crucial to your health and the health of your marriage.

Try one or more of these for you and your spouse’s benefit: Block out some time in your schedule to be alone with your spouse and get away from the demands of life that are causing you stress.
