Scripture Focus… 
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 
(Colossians 3:2 NKJV) 
The following excerpt is taken from The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry by John Mark Comer: 
Silence and Solitude 
Quiet is a kind of balm for emotional healing. And more: an unlocked, open door to spiritual life. As Saint John Climacus, the sixth-century Syrian monk who spent most of his life praying on Mount Sinai, so beautifully said, “The friend of silence draws near to God.” 
Nobody ever said the same about noise. In fact, C.S. Lewis, is his masterwork of satire, The Screwtape Letters, has the demons railing against silence as a danger to their cause (the ruin of a Christian’s soul). Senior demon Screwtape calls the devil’s realm a “Kingdom of Noise” and claims, “We will make the whole universe a noise in the end.” 
Could that be why we let so much noise run roughshod over our lives? 
Or is it something else? 
Where does this strange urge come from to reach for NPR the moment we get in our cars? Or always have music on in the background? Or flip on the TV while we’re cooking dinner? Or listen to podcasts during our workouts? 
As easy as it is to blame the devil, could it be that we’re using external noise to drown out internal noise? 
Again, solitude is pretty straightforward. It’s when you’re alone, with God and with your own soul. 
For clarification, by solitude I don’t mean isolation. The two are worlds apart.  
Solitude is engagement; isolation is escape. 
Solitude is safety; isolation is danger. 
Solitude is how you open yourself up to God; isolation is painting a target on your back for the tempter.  
Solitude is when you set aside time to feed and water and nourish your soul. To let it grow into health and maturity. Isolation is what you crave when you neglect the former.  
“Loneliness is inner emptiness. Solitude is inner fulfillment.” 
Could the antidote for the spiritual malaise be as “easy” as silence and solitude? 
If our theory is right and the problem is more our absence than his, more about our distraction than his disconnection, then the solution is fairly simple, create an environment for attention and connection to God; and I know of no better place than the eremos.  
Why this is of life-and-death importance 
Through church history most of the master teachers of the way of Jesus have agreed: silence and solitude are the most important of all the spiritual disciplines. 
Without solitude it is virtually impossible to live a spiritual life… We do not take the spiritual life seriously if we do not set aside some time to be with God and listen to him. 
Notice the lack of nuance. No exceptions to the rule. No self-deprecating story to soften the blow. He’s just honest: if you don’t set aside time to be alone with God, your relationship will wither on the vine.  
There’s a saying in parenting literature: “To a child, love is spelled T-I-M-E.” There is truth in that. And not just for parents and children. If you love God the Father and want a living, thriving relationship with Him where you experience His presence all through the day, then you need to carve out time to be alone with Him. Full stop. And relational time is wildly inefficient. It comes in fits and bursts. You spend a day together, but it’s one shore conversation you remember, a passing comment that changes everything. 
We get His perspective on life and our humble good places in it. 
And we come to a place of freedom. Our failures slowly lose their power over us. As do our successes. We get out from under the tyranny of other people’s opinions—their disapproval or approval of us. Free to just be us, the missed bag we are. Nothing more than children with our Father. Adopted into love. Free to be in process yet to arrive, and that’s okay. In silence and solitude our souls finally come home. The place of rest. We come back to our places of soul rest. To what Thomas Kelly called “the unhurried [center of] peace and power. 
Continued Praying…
