Two little words, "Come Away," (S. o. S. 2.10) ... and a world of significance.
I feel a Call...
In our Day, in this little hour of our existence, what a weight is in these words.
We live amidst the sordid mess of a world gone mad...
and a church which so many times seems to follow along.
In the midst of it all there is a sweet yet powerful Voice which calls us away from all.
Away from all the Earthly,
Away from all the things which distract the mind.
There is a "here" of this world, and there is a "there" of the world of God.
There is an invitation to come to the One Who awaits,
to come from the shadows to the Light.
to come to His Presence,
to come to His Surrounding Love.
To come away from all else, and let our spirits find the One who is the Anwer to all of life's needs.
"Come" just to be there with Him...
away from all that would destroy ...
away to be renewed and quickened with Life and Vision within ...
there, is "rest unto your souls". (Mt. 11.29)
