Like me, you may be craving true rest and grasping for relief wherever you can get it. Except where it can truly be found.
Since my return of sabbatical I have had a reoccurring conversation with several people I dearly respect. Intrigued by my trip they ask and then reciprocate with: “I could never go away in silence like that.”
Take if from a girl who had panic attacks leading into my alone time— I did NOT think I could do it either. Yet, here I am on the other side believing now - I cannot do WITHOUT it.
We set off in January with a new year— but the turn of the calendar alone will not refuel you. Here we are looking at March and I would love to challenge my friends and see who takes me up on it in 2021……
Get away. Go. Start today with a few hours but challenge yourself to a few days. If only a few hours drive away. Not for a vacation. But for quiet. 𝘞𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘩𝘶𝘮𝘢𝘯. Turn it 𝘢𝘭𝘭 off. Open your hands. Listen. You can find rest and healing but you have to make space for it.
My 7 days alone was the most transformational time in my life. I am new & different.
We alone are not equipped. We need to be filled, lead and poured into by the only source who can.
“Where will you run, my soul.
Where will you go when wells run dry. When the wind starts to blow, How are you gonna keep this flame alive? In the fading light when night is breaking. I know You will always be waiting. You'll always be there. I'm running to the secret place”
Up for the challenge?!
