A SECRET PLACE


Yesterday, we had a guest speaker at church, who spoke about keeping our secret place with the Lord. It convicted me of how busy I become and neglect "ministering" to the Lord.

We all have "a secret place". I have looked for a secret place in a lot of the wrong places through the years (like in a bad relationship, or in wild spending, or in self-indulgent binges), but I am thankful that I found the true secret place at age 19. There I learned that there is only One true secret place that renews, restores, and revives. Sometimes I still wander, but He gently calls me back... to the true secret place.

In this secret place I find who I am and where I belong. In this secret place I learn what I am to do, where I am to go, and find strength for the day. In this secret place, I am changed. I long for the secret place, where I can meet face to face with the One who loves you and me perfectly.

I pray today you would find a quiet moment alone with your Lord in the secret place and that from there His life would overflow into your needs, your wants, your foosteps, and your very surroundings.
