Alone time is priceless.
Whyzat? Because it’s easiest for me to be sovereignty-aware when I’m all alone. When I’m online, on the phone, or with others, I’m not alone, don’t FEEL alone. Being alone gives me the opportunity to FEEL alone, FEEL the pressures on me, the disappointments, frustrations, the sense of my life being UP TO ME, the UNBELIEF in His total reign over every detail of my life. So then. I can CONFESS my independency — that I’m not curious/expectant to see what Jesus does NEXT in me, others, circumstances. Ahhh, communion with Jesus. So amazingly helpful when I realize afresh that I’m not in CHARGE, that my life is not up to ME. Ahhh.
