As I enter the quiet place,
Focused on solitude,
The concerns of the day
Must wait for my return.

With pen in hand
And the page beckoning me,
The ink tells the story
As thoughts and emotions flow.

As secrets are revealed,
I am in awe of the inner place.
All that has been hidden
Is now candidly exposed.

What was before concealed
Takes its place in my conscience.
Now I must face what is within
To find healing and peace.

As I enter the quiet place
With anxiety and confusion,
I look into His eyes
And find assurance there.

Into His outstretched hands
I place my hurts and shortcomings.
As He gently takes them from me,
My burdened heart lightens.

His forgiving spirit
And His leading hand
Bring me to healing and wholeness
And fill me with hope and strength.

He is my healer, my refuge,
My comforter, my retreat.
He leads my every step
As He makes me more like Him.

As I enter the quiet place,
Stress and distractions cease.
In the stillness I hear His voice
As He leads and comforts me.
