What do you think when you see this photo? Is life so crazy busy you wish you could climb into the photo and just sit awhile? If you were able to do that, what would happen?
For most of us, it would take awhile to settle down---let our minds relax to the point of actually noticing WHAT we are looking at. We would begin to experience an intense awareness of everything around us.
The rhythm of our heart would slow to the rhythm of the sea. Our eyes would reflect the colours of the rainbow. Our ears would experience the symphony of nature around us in surround sound.The weight of our problems and challenges would be eased. Our muddled thoughts would become clearer.
This is how it is with "alone time" with God. Slipping away to some place quiet, wherever that may be, will do the same thing for our soul as if we had slipped into the special place within this image.
God does powerful things when we chat with Him. He eases our burdens, He lightens our load. He speaks gently yet clearly and His voice is the only thing we hear. Anxious hearts melt away, and peace beyond human understanding washes over us. Darkness dissipates and clarity brings hope and optimism.
Time alone with God enables His grace to flood over us when darkness threatens to consume us. But we must wait for Him....quietly....in expectation of what He can and will do.
And it is then, at that moment, that He will speak to our hearts.
"In repentance and rest is your salvation, in QUIETNESS and TRUST is your STRENGTH." Isaiah 30:15a NIV
