There is a place that I often go to when I need to be refreshed
and although I haven’t been able to go there physically for some time
I often go there mentally.
Yes, I imagine myself sitting out on a huge rock
watching the ocean waves crash and thunder.
I hear the sound of the surf and the cry of the sea gull.
I feel the warmth of the sun on my skin.
On my beloved rocks I have written pages and pages in journals
and read many books.
It’s my quiet place
the place where I sense His Presence so vividly.
I remember times of wrestling with decisions
praying for hours
and discovering what I’ve needed to do.
There have been times when I’ve just needed to sink into His Peace
and there on my beloved rocks I have known
what is sometimes difficult to know in the everydayness of life.
His Love is Forever
No matter what you have ever done
He loves you and longs for you to understand this.
Do you have a place
A simple place where you can go to
to be refreshed?
It’s so important to have times of refreshment and renewal
to prevent burnout and the stress of the hurried life.
If I close my eyes I can see the ocean and feel the wind on my face.
Although miles away from my rocks
I can place myself there.
It is amazing how much a few minutes of visualizing myself there on the rocky coast
of Maine renews my spirits.
In just a short time I find myself more a peace
with a greater awareness of my purpose in life.
Life itself can wear one down so it’s vital that we take steps to counter this.
Go to your quiet place.
Discover where you sense Peace
and frequently go there to be renewed.
No matter how many times I visit my beloved rocks
I’m never disappointed.
Find your place
put on the music
spread the blankets
sip the iced tea
and simply be.
‘Be still and know that I am God. Psalms 45:10
