And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.
~ Mark 1:35, ESV ~
Spending time in solitude is beneficial for an intimate and deep enriching relationship with our Heavenly Father. Christ sets the example for us to follow. He spent many times in solitude – praying to the Father. In this solitude, there is a deep spiritual intimate encounter with an Almighty Sovereign God.
There, in our private moments, we are able to reach out to the Heavens and reveal our vulnerability. Wise counsel helps us navigate our life. We pray for ourselves, pray for others, and seek healing. It is a time of quietness where our soul receives spiritual nourishment.
For our recovery, we ought to consider detaching ourselves from the world around us and spend time in quiet meditation. Reflecting upon our relationship with God helps us move toward a life with meaning and purpose.
