rest more

And I say, "Oh that I had wings like a dove!
   I would fly away and be at rest;
yes, I would wander far away;
  I would lodge in the wilderness;
I would hurry to find shelter
  from the raging wind and tempest."

Psalm 55:6-8


We can't stay in the wilderness forever but sometimes desolate places are where we find God. Where we can get away and hear Him. Get away and listen for Him. Desolate places don't have to be foreign or exotic, just get out of your box and go somewhere to find Him. 

Your porch or yard, the park or ballfield, the picnic table or gazebo, the field or pond.

Then look around.
See Him.
His creation.
Shush.
Listen.
Sit. 
Be.
