When you feel like your spiritual life is empty or your Christian activities have lost their meaning, it may be time for a journey inward. In my experience, I have found that these are times when Jesus in inviting me onto a deeper path. He says, “Come away with me to a quiet place.” There he makes a space for me to look inside where he dwells with the Father.
These are awkward seasons. It’s hard to slow your activities so that you have time to meet with God in silence and solitude. We feel guilty about not being productive. But Jesus considers these seasons to be the best times for spiritual growth. That’s because we’re ready to travel in a different way.
If this sounds like you, then stop and make intentional plans for silence and solitude. All you need is a room with a door that closes, maybe a candle and a regular appointment with God. What is your experience?
