THE QUIET PLACE
Finding The Quiet Place can be hard in our busy lives. Lives filled with family, work, children, and church. Yes church, we are often so busy with these, that we don’t have time or make time for our Quiet Place.
What is the Quiet Place? It is the place set aside to meet God. To be in his presence. A place where His vary essence surrounds us.
Let me share with you a little of my Quiet Place. It is my favorite chair looking out of the picture window at the trees and the field beyond and the sky above. This is the place where I meet my Father.
Here the tall sturdy trees reminds me of his strength and steadfastness. The fields of his width and depth. The flowers of his gentle and tender care. The sky of his abounding love.
This place is not my prayer room or my praise and worship time, although praise and worship inter in…..how could it not. This is my garden time. It is here as the song writer said, “He walks with me and He talks with me and he tells me I am his own” Here in his presence is a shared joy between Father and daughter.
Find your Quiet Place. It may be a seat on your front porch. A fishing spot on the lake or river. Maybe it’s a stroll through your garden. Wherever it is. It is a place of quiet rest. A place where sons and daughter’s come together with their Heavenly Father. God waits for you there.
Zephaniah 3:17 says “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you. He will quiet you with his love. He will rejoice over you with singing.”
Time alone with God refreshes our souls and spirit. It renews us and fills us with quit gentle joy.
Find time to make time to spend quietly with God. You won’t regret it.
