She made her way through the kitchen. She gathered her cup and moved to her place at the table. It was dark, so she lit a single candle. There she stayed – hidden away from the world.
She was wonderfully hidden there. She was safe from her fears and worry could not touch her. She was in a sacred place of peace.
What she found there gave her strength and courage to face what was before her. Past hurts were uncovered so they could be properly bound and healed. Truth sustained her through trials and error. And a deep joy and hope settled within her that could not be shaken.
She was not alone in this place. She was answering a call that was beginning to become an anchor for her soul.
She had found a place and a time with just her and her savior – her Jesus.
My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.”
And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.”
But they delight in the law of the Lord,
meditating on it day and night.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
and they prosper in all they do.
I will bless the Lord who guides me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
I know the Lord is always with me.
I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
The Lord directs the steps of the godly.
He delights in every detail of their lives.
Though they stumble, they will never fall,
for the Lord holds them by the hand.
