The Lord will make war for you, you have only to keep quiet. – Exodus 14:14
I am so tempted to argue about political things because I care about the direction the country is headed. I’ve had to read Scriptures that remind me that God is God and this is all part of His plan. I need to trust Him more and be still.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. – Psalm 46:10
Today we celebrate HERMIT DAY! It’s a day to be in quiet seclusion. For me it will be a day to ponder and wonder about the future. A day to re-examine my own beliefs and a day to pray to my Maker. I just want peace in the world, in my country and in my house. I will pray to that end. I’m fortunate enough to have the opportunity to spend much of my time alone, so I do a lot of praying. I prefer to live away from the crowds and the sea of humanity. Maybe it’s because I grew up an only child, but I know how to be alone. I do it quite well and find all sorts of projects to keep myself occupied.
Today I will celebrate my lifestyle. If you would like to be a hermit today, just run off by yourself to a secluded area where no one can find you. It’s not difficult to leave – just leave. Take a day to recharge your batteries.
Take a book. Take a Bible and a devotional book or prayer-book. Find a peaceful lake or a place you’ve always wanted to go. Let the ones you love know you are leaving but don’t tell them where you’re going. If you take your phone – turn it off. When you are finished with the hermitization process – turn your phone on and let them know you’re ok and on your way home.
I think it’d be fun to bake some HERMIT COOKIES on hermit day. But then, I’m weird.
It’s amazing how much good it will do (especially mentally) to be a hermit for one day.
My house is so quiet when the TV is turned off and there’s no one here but me. I enjoy the quiet, especially when I’m trying to write. Some folks just can’t let go of their hectic lifestyle – not even for a day. They think they’ll get too bored or miss out on something. Take a chance, go away, talk to God, just pray. Or, bake some hermit cookies and pray while they’re baking. You will be so glad you did – trust me! 🙂
