GOD n You: The Gift of Solitude
Almost a year ago to the day, I began a blog series called, "9 Days of Seclusion". The piece below was the first the nine. "9 Days" was how I defined the mental vacation I needed. I was suffering from "people overload". Too many humans. Not enough God.
Now, here we are... a year later... in the midst of a pandemic... trying to live our lives with too few people. It makes me wonder - after a year like this -
Do we believe God really is enough?
If God was enough, would we be lonely?
If God was enough, would we be scared.
If God was enough, would we feel like no one cared.
If God was enough, would we make bad choices or carry we burdens we bare?
Maybe live would be different if God was there.
I hope you enjoy today's piece. it's called "Solitude". Perhaps, in this season, instead of running from God, He's setting us up to run to Him....
He really IS enough.
Then Mary took a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. ~John 12:3
As I meander through the crowd, life is rushing before me,
My mind replaying the all losses… and all the loves.
The circumstances of my life would not have me here,
But I came anyway.
I don’t know when I will leave this space. I just know I don’t want to, so I’ll stay despite the condemnation of those trying to squeeze me out.
