Do you ever have trouble sleeping? I sometimes do. I never did as a child. If I close my eyes right now, by day, I can still recall the soft murmuring of Mama and Daddy talking in the other room. I didn’t always understand what they were saying, but I felt safe and loved and knew everything would be okay and felt their comforting nearness as I drifted off to sleep. I am not that innocent little girl anymore but whether I am feeling alone or not, my Abba is always near and loving me too! All I need to do is let go, let Him take care of me, and rest knowing He will never abandon me . . . just like my earthly parents never did.

Quiet times with the Lord should not be considered a luxury which we hope to fit in, but instead a necessity to begin the day with. A retreat . . . a meal for a hungry soul. A retreat is livegiving but need not seem unattainable! One can take place in our own livingroom, in our favorite chair . . . simply by getting up a little earlier. The difference it will make in our day, in our life, is beyond description! Try it!
