Go Away

Solitude can be difficult to find, whether we are around people or lost in loneliness.  Solitude is a stance more than a situation–it is a way of being alone before God, unarmed with all of our protections.  Being alone is only the easiest way to get to this stance, but it is not the stance itself.

Today, seek solitude.  This could be best achieved by finding some space and time away from others so that you can focus on being alone before God.  But if you cannot go away, go away in yourself.  Place yourself in a posture of solitude in which all that matters is your presence naked before God.
