A SOLITARY PLACE

There is nothing more tempting than a place of solitude. A place of solitude where phones do not ring and loud voices all shouting at once do not compete for our attention. A place of solitude where we can hear ourselves think, feel our own calmed breathing, rediscover the inner rhythms which seek in vain to regulate our lives. A place of solitude where we can listen to the wind rippling through the trees or, perhaps, to the full and wise sound of stillness. A place of solitude free from television and calendars. A place of tranquil rest and blessed retreat. There is nothing more tempting than a place of solitude.

But most of all we need a place of solitude to commune with the Almighty. Jesus practiced this. “And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed” (Mark 1:35).

Find your place of solitude.
