A 31 day journal for the easily overstimulated humans.
(Because we exist, and we desire to live well. Not just hide well.)
The Dwelling Place has always existed, though I have not always visited.
- It is the place we go when we can’t just go.
- It is the place where we meet with Holy Spirit.
- It is the place where we are stilled.
- It is the place which gives us a moment’s peace.
- It is the place we live from.
Less escaping. More embracing.
Never closed for the season. Never overbooked.
Never not prepared for our arrival.
Always welcomes with open arms.
This place is not a thing but a face.
our Dwelling Place.
The Dwelling Place | 31 Days of Real Life Getaways | Day #1
We worship with our core being.
From this place breathes life.
When we can’t escape the noise and clamor,
we simply close our eyes.
We meet with God right here. Right now.
No where else need be.
We suck in truth like a sip of hot cider,
we exhale frosty extremes.
Letting Holy Spirit warm up hearts’ cold
tames the easily overstimulated soul.
The Dwelling Place always open,
He is where we go.
He holds our chipped and frazzled bodies
though others may not know.
Because right here, right now…
we choose to rest in Him.
We trade anxieties
for His Peace
as we cast
1 Peter 5:7 The Voice
7 Since God cares for you, let Him carry all your burdens and worries.
1 Peter 5:7 Living Bible
7 Let him have all your worries and cares, for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.
1 Peter 5:7 Amplified Bible
7 casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].
***Join me each October evening for the #write31days event (learn more here) for a gentle fleshing out of the thoughts, as I seek to continually find Solace right where I am.
Psst…if you know anyone who gets easily overwhelmed and needs encouragement…turn their shoulders this way so we can lean into Truth together.
