"At home with God, I find rest and renewal."
I hear a gentle urging : "Wherever you are right now, whatever you are doing, come away for a while and rest. Come away by tuning out any noise and confusion that are going on around you, and retreat to the inner sanctuary of your soul."
This retreat is a homecoming for me. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, I need to do except allow myself to be with God. I feel, more than hear, the gentle whisper of Spirit saying, "Here, My beloved, I give you rest."
As if by some mystery, all that ever concerned me before is now gone. Any physical discomfort has ceased, and I feel a rush of new energy.
I return to my day knowing that I can come home to be with God as quickly and easily as I make the decision to do so. With God, I rest and I am refreshed.
"Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while."
- Mark 6:31
