Hiding Place

I've started journaling as a way to better articulate my prayers to God.  It has really helped me to clarify my feelings and my desires.  Journaling is also a great point of accountability for me by keeping me focused and on track in my devotional time.

I won't always blog my prayers, but just felt like putting this out there for anyone who may feel the same.  My purpose in sharing is simply to be a help to somebody who may also struggle with articulating what they are feeling.

I have always longed to escape away to retreat to a special place - to travel by myself to an exclusive hiding place, where I can hid in safety, in stillness, .... in quiet.

No one is looking for me.  No one waiting on me.  It's as if time stands still.

There is no rush.  No need to summarize.  There is time to feel, a place to express, an opportunity to create.

You are there, My God.  You are listening.

You are present - making Yourself available.

Nothing surprises You, Father - nothing makes You wonder.

"Ask Me, and it shall be given to you.  Seek, and you shall find.  Knock, and the door will be open to you."
