I am thankful you are here.
For without you, all would be clutter and noise and demands and needs.
I need time to be me, alone with God, whose eyes are ever on me –
like I’m the only person He knows.
I need time away from every other living soul,
so that I rest with the Creator, the Friend – time to be quiet and listen.
With you, I listen to what my heart has wanted to say when other parts of life
kept butting in.
I listen to find out where I am.
I sit and wait and He draws nearer, like a bank of fog thick, encompassing.
In His image, His pattern, I am totally dependent for every breath.
Quiet me, Lord, and take my hand and draw me away to a solitary place
so that I might be refreshed in Your river, Your ocean of promise, love, peace.
totally immersed, diving in who You are.
Alone in You.
~”Come aside to a quiet place with Me and rest a while.” Matthew 6:31~
