Solitude from Psalm 91 Empty Solitude from Psalm 91

Post by Parsons Wife on Tue Jun 02, 2009 9:29 pm

Sorry I've been AWOL. Been a busy few days. Things ought to be more normal for a few days anyway Wink We've begun a new discipline, Solitude. THis will undoubtedly make some uncomfortable. Fortunately, I look forward to a little bit of solitude and my goal is to spend one day each week relatively alone with the Lord. That's a goal, mind you... For some, perhaps it will be only an hour or two, but strive to take some period of time daily or weekly alone having nothing to do... just God and you. Today's meditative scripture is Psalm 91, a favorite of mine Smile

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.
3 There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
4 Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun,
5 which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is hidden from its heat.
7 The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the LORD are sure
and altogether righteous.
10 They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.
11 By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
12 Who can discern his errors? Forgive my hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then will I be blameless,
innocent of great transgression.
14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

I love solitude, but I don't spend time alone in the Word and prayer. That would be a good discipline. I've heard that Luther spent 3 hours a day in prayer.. There are so many good reasons to do this.

I'll take you up on this.. I will try for 1/2 hour at first! Will try to do that some time today.

That means I will have to turn off the computer, cuz that's usually where I end up if I have a few minutes alone! Smile

Parson's Wife,
good idea. I use to have a set time to study and pray. I've gotten out of that habit, and I do need to make it a "habit" or it doesn't get done. I'll set a set time for me to spend alone with God. Thanks for the reminder.

He who cultivates his land will have plenty of food,
but from idle pursuits a man has his fill of poverty
Proverbs 28:19[b]
