Browne: solitude

Tuesday, February 8, 2011
“Am I only a God nearby,”
        declares the LORD,
    “and not a God far away?
Can anyone hide in secret places
    so that I cannot see him?”
        declares the LORD.
“Do not I fill heaven and earth?”
        declares the LORD.
    —Jeremiah 23:23-24 (NIV)
    Be able to be alone. Lose not the advantage of solitude, ... but delight to be alone and single with Omnipresency.
    ... Sir Thomas Browne (1605-1682), Christian Morals [op. post. 1716], London: Henry Washbourne, 1845, p. 45 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, by grace, You are present to Your church.
