the way our soul learns

person wearing gray hoodie jacket watching lake

solitude: time alone with God long enough to sense

his presence, his nearness; to grow in the certainty
that he is with us and for us, always and into forever

silence: space to notice what we hear

when no one else is competing for our attention and allegiance, who and what really calls our name, speaks truth

contemplation: to look longer at the beauty of the world;

to find, take our place in it; close the gap between us and God’s creation to the smallest of margins, open up new vistas

a poem about what comes when we come to be alone with God, to grow still, lean in – from my new book Quiet Waters
