In need of solitude


Taylor shared this quote.. Well I don't know if something this long is still called a quote... Nonetheless, it is something very important to remember.
I have been so busy lately and my closet prayers keep getting cut shorter and shorter.. getting almost completely out of the picture..
I hate that I always cut the important things in life. I know I do it because the consequences are not immediately visible.. but I know they are there.. I can feel them now.



Listen to some words of wisdom from Spurgeon...


"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. . . ."

  1. I have been thinking about the same thing.. we spend so much time hanging out, with friends and other people, and yet we fail to spend time in solitude. Often times it would be much better to spend time alone rather than with people.
