Strength is Born in Solitude

In a world where speed and productivity are prized and busyness is a way of life, solitude has become a rare commodity.  But strength is found not in busyness and noise, but in quietness.

Are you weary and exhausted?  Jesus says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”  Matthew 11:28

In order to cultivate a personal relationship with God (and what a stunning invitation He offers us!), it’s going to take some quiet time alone.

C.S. Lewis says, “God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from himself…because it is just not there.”

We were made for God, and in the end, nothing less will satisfy us without Him.   We are all thirsty and empty, and He alone fills the hungry void.

“…for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good
things.” Psalm 107:9

Look for a quiet place today, even if you can only spare five minutes.
You’ll be glad you did.
