Some of the most profound ministries of the Spirit of God are not public or loud or large. Sometimes His most meaningful touch on our lives comes when we are all alone.
I urge you to include in your schedule time to be alone with God . . . .
You do have places where you can get away for a long walk, don’t you? I hope it’s in a wooded area. The gentle breeze blowing through the forest is therapeutic.
Sometimes just being alone out in God’s marvelous creation is all that’s needed for the scales to be removed from your eyes and for you to silence the harassment and the noise of your day and begin to hear from God.
