Jesus Habits: Solitude

I do not follow Jesus into his habit of solitude because I need him, which I do. I follow him there because all of my hope rests upon him for all things.

I find my self to be American, self-reliant, and arrogant far to often. I find myself to be irritated at others. I find myself lost in worry about the future, and fearful of the provision of the now.

It’s by following Jesus into his habit of solitude that I am reminded that he has all things I need. That my hope can rest in knowing that he holds the future. I’m reminded that I don’t need to set goals. For goals are discovered in him, not made of my own plans.

In solitude I am recharged to be present and listen to others, like Thomas Merton observes, “It is in deep solitude that I find the gentleness with which I can truly love my brothers. The more solitary I am the more affection I have for them…. Solitude and silence teach me to love my brothers for what they are, not for what they say.”

It’s in solitude that we remember that He is the air we need to breath. 

"There are times when solitude is better than society, and silence is wiser than speech. We should be better Christians if we were more alone, waiting upon God, and gathering through meditation on His Word spiritual strength for labour in his service. We ought to muse upon the things of God, because we thus get the real nutriment out of them… . Why is it that some Christians, although they hear many sermons, make but slow advances in the divine life? Because they neglect their closets, and do not thoughtfully meditate on God’s Word. They love the wheat, but they do not grind it; they would have the corn, but they will not go forth into the fields to gather it; the fruit hangs upon the tree, but they will not pluck it; the water flows at their feet, but they will not stoop to drink it. From such folly deliver us, O Lord… ."
- Charles H. Spurgeon

Meet Oriyah & Raven. Raven is an amazing banjo player & singer. Oriyah’s voice is beautiful as well. Raven needed a $20 part to get playing his best again. Our family can handle that. Made new friends tonight. #Loveisnotlost

In the beginning the church was a fellowship of men and women centered on the living Christ. Then the church moved to Greece, where it became a philosophy. Then it moved to Rome, where it became an institution. Next, it moved to Europe, where it became a culture. And, finally, it moved to America, where it became an enterprise.
