The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught. Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest." So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place. (Mark 6:30-32 TNIV)
Christian writer Frederick Buechner said, "A bleeding heart is no help to anybody if it bleeds to death." That means not only taking care of yourself physically, but feeding yourself with divine nourishment from the Word, being merciful to yourself, and accepting the bread of life from Jesus.
