A Letter to You, from Solitude

Hello there...

I haven't heard from you awhile. I hope everything is okay...

I feel like your days are beset with deadlines and to-dos... your mind is wired to do the next thing immediately after you are done with something.

If you are not hustling, then you are not doing enough.

If you are not exasperated, then you have to work harder.

Pauses and rest have taken a bad rep for you over the years.

You cringe at the idea of having to slow down.

You run to the next big thing if someone suggests that you take a rest.

But could it be that you keep running away from me because you have grown scared of the pauses and the stops your soul needs?

Could it be that you are in fact more scared to slow down and take a long and hard look at your heart, at the depths of your soul, that to run for hours on end is a more appealing thought?

Could it be that you are escaping having to answer the hard questions because you don’t really know the answers and you don’t even know where to start?

The digital age has provided an escape, a fortress, to hide yourself in and you have held on to it like a lifesaver thrown at you in an open sea, when it reality, it is the very current that pulls you down — drowning you.

I know it may be hard to hear all I have to say but I just have to put it out there.

There is a reason why I was created — I am a place for you to rest your soul. I am the perfect time to check your heart and to reflect on what God is doing in your life.

I am a place for the courageous, for the brave enough to see their mistakes and shortcomings and to surrender it to the One who can make everything right again.

I am place for beauty, for newness and for fresh air.

I am place that God calls you into...




...and I am a place that He calls you into today.

I hope to hear from you soon...

Call me back?
