Breakfast at Tiffany's: Vacation with God

This week's column is written by Aaron Gravett

“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 


Many people are out taking vacations - cruises, seeing national monuments, famous scenery, and some vacationing right here in Branson. Vacation time with family can be a great time to get away from the everyday, mundane routine of life.  


When my wife Tiffany and I vacation, we have two objectives. One is to relax - to actually take a break from the routine of life and allow our minds and bodies a time to “just be” - a time to reduce the stress, to rest, and not be so fast paced. We sure do like cabins for this very reason. The second objective is to spend time with the Lord Jesus in devotions together. A time where we read the Scripture together, pray and talk about Him and the direction He is leading us. Our devotions together on a porch or balcony have become a favorite part of our vacations. 


Then, when you get back to regular life, you have more energy, a rested mind, and a renewed closeness with God that will help you get through the everyday routine again, but maybe with a new look on everything. After you reconnect with the Lord and family, bring the goal of glorifying God into your everyday life again. Let the newness of God’s mercies shine in and through you every single day. Wait upon the Lord and let Him renew your strength.


Remember, we are only given one life—live it for the Lord and for His glory. One day, when the Lord calls us home, we will be on the best vacation and one that will last forever!
