Come away, My child. For a little while leave your world behind. Come into My presence and I will give you rest. All will wait. You need some time with Me secluded in our private place where others cannot intrude. This is our time...just you and Me. Come away.

Come away, My child. I long for you to soak in My love and presence. Allow My peace to cut through all your worries and cares. The enemy wants you to be so absorbed in the responsibilities and cares of this life that you have no time for Me. He assigns them an importance they do not deserve. Time with Me will put your life in perspective again. You carry burdens needlessly; they need not weigh you down. Come to Me. Peace will come as you spend time alone with Me. In My presence you will find refreshment. In My presence lies contentment. In My presence there is tranquility. Come away.

Come away, My child. You ask for material gifts when in reality you need My perspective, My wisdom, My direction, and My peace. These do not come as you rush through your world but only as you are alone with Me. All else will then fall into place. I long to reassure you of My love and My provision for your life. I am waiting. Come away.


"If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers--most of which are never even seen--don't you think he'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I'm trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God's giving. People who don't know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes." Matthew 6:30-34 (The Message)

"Come away and rest awhile," written on a postcard from my dad touched my heart. He was lonesome for his children's company, but knowing how busy lives can be, he only made the suggestion. How like our Heavenly Father! Thank you for this reflective reminder of where our real support lies. Thank you, too, for reading and leaving a comment on my "Falling Waters...." story. I appreciate you!
