Sunday Stillness – What is Solitude?
That’s what I have found in the past week – a peace – a lack of myself and my desire to control. I have left it all behind in order to find my place with Jesus.
Where did I find it?
In the quiet moments – few and far between – but there. It is possible to find that quietness.
Knowing that before I start anything, I seek the quietness of my soul. Don’t start anything until I refresh my soul.
Reading Psalm 30
I understand now that when I use self-reliance, I am NOT relying on God. Praising God for being my reliance. Praising Him for standing by my side.
“I” do get in the way of my relationship with God. (Tweet this)
So I am trying to let go. Relax and listen to Him. Rest in between my “doings”.
I cried out to God
He lifted me from the depths
Placed me on His Rock
(Janis Cox – haiku, 2015, based on Psalm 30)
Grabs hold of my soul
Deep within myself
(Janis Cox, mirror poem, based on Psalm 30)
