Thought I would share a few great quotes about solitude that I read this morning from “Dare to Journey with Henri Nouwen” by Charles Ringma. This has been a great little devotional for my morning reading.
“Solitude is not withdrawal in order to get way. It is withdrawal in order to be with Someone who normally gets crowded out of our lives.”
“The challenge in solitude is to avoid hearing only what we want to hear.”
“We are seeking our own answers when we fail to be open and when we simply come up with our own agendas.”
“It is when we give up our own agendas that the place of solitude can become the place of inner renewal and new insights.”
Which one of these statements challenges you the most today?
