“He took them with him and they withdrew by themselves.”’
Still on the issue of quiet time…we must spend a great deal of time in quiet solitude in order to grow in grace.
Contact with others in society is good…but that is not what causes the soul to grow most vigorously.
Admittedly, nowadays it seems virtually impossible to disengage from people with whatsapp and Facebook etc.
But it is critical that we each find a way to step aside from all that the world holds dear…get away with Christ and share with Him all our victories and failures, hopes and fears.
This way we allow Him to feed us with the bread of life and heal us with the wine of love.
It is my prayer that we will allow Christ to nurture and strengthen us in His quietness…amen!
