There are times in life when everything crashes in, and we feel like giving up. Elijah’s desperate escape and God’s loving restoration paints a picture of how God desires to lead us to wholeness and hope. In comparison, Jesus’s quiet model of slipping away in the quiet of the morning, demonstrates an alternate approach for coping with life’s chaos before we crumble under the stress.
Scripture used: 1 Kings 19:1-16 and Mark 1:29-39
