Unplugging and Recharging

These days, advancements in technology have made it harder to find true solitude. People expect to get a hold of you at all times. Finding a quiet space to be alone is only the first step. Turning off all devices and disconnecting from the world takes a bit more discipline.

Before He started His public ministry, Jesus withdrew into the desert by Himself. He continued this practice of seeking solitude throughout the next few years. He drew strength and wisdom from the Father by communing with Him alone.

The spiritual discipline of solitude has many benefits. It takes away the external voices of influence. It quiets the mind. It creates space for God to speak.

During this season of Lent, take the opportunity to practice true solitude. Get away from everyone, even if it is only for a few hours. Turn off all your devices. Be alone with God.
