Respite

We all need a short period of rest and relief from the hustle and bustle and screen time of modern life. Our lives are bombarded with others wanting us to do something. Periodically I certainly need to detach from everything worldly and relax. Years ago while studying for my oral board examinations, I spent a long weekend in a Catholic Respite in Arkansas. It gave me such peace and allowed me to focus clearly on the important things in life. Now years later, I feel the need to search for that peace again.

“Let every word you speak be drenched with grace and tempered with truth and clarity. For then you will be prepared to give a respectful answer to anyone who asks about your faith.”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭4:6‬ ‭TPT‬‬

When you seek God with all your heart and all your soul and all your might, He manifests Truth and Peace and Love. We can only have this clarity with His Divine intervention. I have come to realize my life is tenuous, and I need Him to save me from myself. I can see clearly now—that’s clarity.
