The Beauty of Solitude
The Beauty of not being afraid to be alone
Of knowing God always resides within
That His Creation rests all about
Inside and Out
Outside and In
Love God in all Creation.
Love all Creation for God’s sake.
That’s why Jesus died
You are a Child of God
Redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb
Co-Heir to Christ’s Glory *
* For those who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.
For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received a spirit of adoption, through which we cry, “Abba, Father!”
The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if only we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.
—Romans 8:14-17 (NABRE)
