Commit to the Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3
Vacations sure are nice. A chance to get away and experience new and exciting things. The intent of a vacation is twofold. Enjoyment is necessary but also the freedom to relax and get away from everyday stresses. There may be times when a vacation is more stressful than staying home. When this happens sometimes we wish we had just stayed home. Do not be afraid to schedule down time in your plans. That way you don't return home wiped out.
It is important to go away, but not on vacation from God and being a Christian. He wants to be involved in every part of your life. To have a peaceful trip why not commit the time to Him and pray about where it is you should go? You may have a place in mind. Before you depart pray and ask God to keep you safe and make your life a witness for Him wherever you go on your time away. Ask Him to help you in the details of your trip and give you wisdom on what activities to participate in.
PRAYER: As the time for summer vacation approaches Lord, I want to be serving you wherever it is I go. I pray for hotel rooms to have God's word placed by the Gideon's in the bedside tables for those who do not know you to possibly read. I am thankful to be able to go on a trip if even only locally. In Jesus' name. Amen.
