Steal Away with Me

Enter My Presence and Refresh Your Spirit

Steal Away with Me – I will take care of you

Steal away with Me.

Escape the chains of responsibility

Eschew the ropes of judgement and scorn

Discard the tethers of others’ expectations

And sit awhile with Me.

Steal away with Me.

Let the laundry lie in its limp endless loads

Seek a crack in the cacophony of caregiving

Allow the worries of work to wander away

And relax a moment with Me.

Steal away with Me.

Life is not as I designed it:

Filled with wonder and beauty and love.

So let go of your unrealistic expectations

And trust yourself with Me.

Steal away with Me.

Let the breeze of My loving grace refresh you

Allow My peace to soak into your soul

Bask in the warmth of My wonder and love

And sit awhile with Me.

Steal away with Me – and I will give you peace

Steal Away with Me. Find grace in the presence of God #getaway #refeshyoursoul #inspirememonday Click To Tweet

What brings peace to your soul?

It seems we live in a crazy world.  Work, children, chores and even amazing church responsibilities all seek to divert our attention from the One who offers us the spirit of peace, love and grace.  This weekend, I hungered for that and found solace and grace at the beach.  Often I find serenity in a sunset, a waterfall or the earnest face of a student.  But I confess to days when I forget to even look for what our gracious Father offers us:  to cast our cares on Him, to rely on His direction and to remember that His plans are eternal.

How do you refresh your spirit?

    That which brings peace to my soul are…responsibility and duty. I’ll stand down when I’m dead.

    And maybe, God willing, not even then. I hope He sends me back into the fight.

    • Love it! Responsibility and duty – sounds just like my dad, whom I so admire!

  • Right now my soul is being refreshed by the beginnings of spring beauty! So hopeful and encouraging!

    • Yes! I’m loving this spring! My school (where I work) is surrounded by orange trees which are in bloom and the smell is heavenly!

  • What a refreshing post, Carol! My spirit can be refreshed by spending time outdoors just enjoying nature, or relaxing with a cup of tea and a book, or taking time to read the Bible and pray.

    Blessings to you!

  • I’m most often refreshed in solitude and quietness, in the Word of God, but also by the renewal of spring, by sunshine and blue skies after a few days of rain and storms,

    • Yes Barbara! I rarely can find solitude and quietness – but a deep breath of Spring air is almost as good!

    Ah yes! This speaks to my soul! I love it… and try to actually put it into practice, if not on a daily basis (that is the goal!) then at least a couple of times per week! It is for my own sanity and everyone elses’ benefit, too!

    • It is hard to put it into practice. I was blessed by a few blissful and peace-filled moments this weekend!

  • I’m about to go steal away with him now by working in my flower beds. 🙂 Thanks for the encouragement!

    • Awesome! Yes – flowers are a get-away for me too. 🙂
