Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went to a solitary place, where He prayed.” Mark 1:35
My daily practice has been to follow what Jesus modeled; rising early, in darkened quiet, nurturing relationship with Father. Solitude in God’s presence; refreshing, renewing spiritual vigor.
I have discovered my days flow smoother in maintaining this habit - this has become my most important spiritual discipline. These times alone with God imparts into me His Spirit; guiding, directing, granting wisdom.
What more can I desire then this sweet union with my God?
Times spent longingly basking in God’s presence returns to me; inner joy, contentment, and peace. This type of sustained peace results from these sacred spaces where I am joined in communion with the holy One.
It becomes vital in making these times to be alone with God, intentional and purposed.
The highest calling upon my life is to be in this near relationship with Father. These early morning encounters birth spiritual fruits and godly potential. Fresh flowing fragrance of pure love saturates my being as He pours His resurrected life into the tattered frame of my humanness, again and again and again.
Letting go of knowledge. Letting go of arrogance. Letting go of selfishness. Letting go of wanting. Letting go of all that is within my flesh, willingly opening to God’s Spirit to move and have His desire in my heart as I yield, surrendering, offering layers of myself, moment by moment.
In this sacred resting place my soul is intertwined with the holies of holy during these early morning hours - His life deeply embedded into mine.
In all the moments, hours, and activities of my day, from the beginning to the close, I walk in the bountiful heart of Father’s Spirit, where He intimately draws me closer, deeper, and wider into His unreserved and unlimited well of grace, mercy and love.
