Refreshing reminder

by Christa G.


Father for Thy promised blessing,
Still we plead before Thy throne
For the times of sweet refreshing,
Which can come from Thee alone
Blessed earnests Thou hast given,
But in these we would not rest
Blessings still with Thee are hidden,
Pour them forth and make us blest!
Give reviving, give refreshing,
Give the looked-for Jubilee
To Thyself may crowds be pressing,
Bringing glory unto Thee
–“Give Reviving”

As a mother to two small children, I very rarely get “quiet time.” But in the midst of the chaos, My Lord and Sustainer meets me, revives me, and refreshes my soul.

In the moments when I can feel so overwhelmed, He reminds me how much I need Him–a reminder I hope never ends.

Where does your soul find rest? Do you have a particular place in your home to which you regularly retreat for time with the Lord? Do you draw near to Him through music, journaling, or simply by opening His word? Give us a glimpse into your home. Submit a picture and/or story of your own “quiet time corner” to wmt@ecpca.org. We want to see where you take refuge for quiet (or not-so-quiet) times with God as part of our Quiet Time series.
