By The Stream of Solitude
16 October, 2016
Solitude is not for the faint-hearted. At times the most difficult thing we can do is to sit with ourselves. Yet it is in the doing of things that disturb our comfort that we are re-formed. Diamonds are fashioned from coal.
Solitude is the roof over devotion. It is not a task to do but a stopping to delight in.
Solitude is a catalyst to slow.
In solitude I find everything I want by placing behind me everything I have.
Solitude is as much reclining in the waters of heaven as it is knowing I am separate from the earth.
Solitude is the haven where my Lord can breathe His warm life-giving Spirit into my soul; His grace for yet another day.
Solitude is the divine shining water that soothes a striving soul; the seat of calming words to any troubled spirit.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He refreshes my soul. (Psalm 23:2-3a)
Dive into the stream of solitude for there are no unseen obstacles to injure and only refreshment to be drunk.
