God’s Quiet Place

From Luke 6:12:  “Now during those days He went out to the mountain to pray, and He spent the night in prayer to God.”

Needing to rest awhile

Overwhelmed, countless thoughts

Looking for special place

Mind bound in endless knots


Seeking time for prayer

Faced with fleeting choices

Searching for quiet place

Away from past voices


Hiking to mountaintop

Filled with Spirit’s insight

Trusting every new step

God welcomes with His light


Being alone with God

Bottled up words speak out

Praying for hours on end

Life’s course now comes about


Hearing from God’s wisdom

Blessed words offer grace

Quelling battle within

Always, God’s quiet place

  1. Nice images that go along well with the poem. My quiet place is early in the morning in my recliner next to the window. My husband sleeps late, telemarketers aren’t up yet, so it’s me and God, uninterrupted.

  2. Beautifully spoken. It put me in mind of the old song, “Near to the Heart of God.” When we move away from the world’s noise and into the sounds of nature and see its beauty, I believe it draws us “Near to the Heart of God.”

  4. This post generates a host of peaceful feelings. “Searching for quiet place/ Away from past voices” is a quest many fail to accomplish. Fortunately you and I know how to find that place daily … and it doesn’t have to be a “place” in particular because we carry that location in our hearts every day!
