“People who take time to be
alone usually have depth, originality and quiet reserve.”
I need to be alone. I need time to listen to my thoughts, consider my
opinions and strengthen my body. I need to pull away from my hectic
life to be alone with me.
As a drinking alcoholic I hated to be alone. I became paranoiac about
“leaving the fort” – today I accept that nobody is indispensable and
that the world will still be there when I return from the desert!
Today I grow in the stillness of solitude. I can rest in that “still” part
of me that is the essential me.
God is very close to me in the silence of self.
Lord, in the stillness of Your life, I am healed and rejuvenated.
