One of the most important things we can EVER, EVER, EVER do is carve out time to be alone with God. If your life is full and busy, like mine often is, you’ll need to be intentional about this. But it is well worth it to carve out 1 to 3 hours (or more!) every so often when it’s just you and your Creator.
This personal retreat guide I created for Kyria.com is packed with ideas, experiences, and activities that can guide your time of silence and solitude. Check it out and use it for your own time of retreat — or just take your journal, sketchpad, iPod ,and Bible. However you do it, find the time. Write it in your calendar. And make it happen.
