Default In God's Care

In God's Care

Solitude is not something you must hope for in the future. Rather, it is a deepening of the present.

-Thomas Merton

We can take a few moments, right now, to really quiet ourselves, and not think of anything. We can give our mind an unexpected rest, and let the peace of God' s care envelop us like a soft blanket.

In these moments of quiet, we discover solitude. We realize that solitude is available to us in a moment's decision. Within solitude we find God's promise of serenity, and we're renewed once again. And we can find this renewal again and again in the serenity that awaits us each moment we choose solitude.

The pace at which most of us live is so tiring, and our busyness depletes our physical, emotional, and spiritual energy hour by hour, day by day. The renewal we long for is ours; we just need to make the decision.

I'll be quiet, now, and feel renewed and in touch with God.


This is good for me today as I am going through some stress, and I know that in order to cope and deal with things, or more importantly, lovingly detach, I need that quiet and a time with the God of my understanding. It isn't easy when the person is your son and your sister.
