Today's Christian Woman focuses on spiritual disciplines and practices to help you go deeper in your faith

Solitude

Our world and lives are so noisy! In fact the noisier they are the more difficult it is to hear the soft whisper of the Holy Spirit speaking into our lives. So we practice periods of quiet, in which we open ourselves to hearing what God is saying to us. When we close our minds to the distractions and sounds of life we can better hear God. While community is important and has a place, we also need to be solitary time with our Creator and Lover of our souls. Solitude is also closely connected to silence. It is removing ourselves from other people and all distractions or interactions, to focus solely on God and our relationship with him.
