Session Snapshot: Students are incredibly busy. Multitasking isn’t a gift that some have and others don’t… it is a necessary skill that students need in order to survive in the fast pace of the world. School, band, sports practice, volunteering, jobs, and simply spending time with family and friends all create a tremendous drain on students’ time. When they aren’t doing any of these things, they’re being bombarded by the overwhelming amount of media they have at their fingertips. Even when they’re not busy, they’re not resting. And sadly, most aren’t stopping to spend time in meaningful communion with God. Jesus teaches us that pressing pause in the midst of our busy lives is crucial to staying connected with God. In this lesson, your students will learn that finding their pause button and spending meaningful time alone with God is the key to living the life that God desires them to live.
