Sunday Morning Coffee - A Secret Place

“He went up into a mountain apart” Matthew 14:23

"One of the blessings of the old-time Sabbath was its calm, its restfulness, its holy peace. There is a strange strength conceived in solitude. Crows go in flocks and wolves in packs, but the lion and the eagle are solitaires."

"The one thing needed above all others today is that we shall go apart with our Lord, and sit at His feet in the sacred privacy of His blessed presence. Oh, for the lost art of meditation! Oh, for the culture of the secret place! Oh, for the tonic of waiting upon God!"   –Selected

 Time to find that secret place and refill my cup!



  1. Great thought! Refilling our cup in more ways than one is a great idea!

  2. Great reminder! Seems to be a theme in all I read and listen to these days -- time apart to think...

  3. Beautiful thoughts.... calm, restfulness, holy peace... set apart time.

    Blessings on you today!
