Sometimes, I just want to be by myself.

Not mad at anybody, don’t have a bad attitude, not being selfish. 

No social media, no calls or texts, no work, no projects. 

Just want to spend some quiet time alone with my thoughts. 

When I take this time for myself, I create a space to push aside the day’s distractions

and challenges and focus on what is truly important to me, time with my Father.

Like a child, I long to be in my Father’s presence.

It is there; I can be myself and tell Him all my concerns.

It is there where I can open my heart and love without fear.

My Father, He knows everything about me, my weaknesses and my sins, yet He still forgives me and tells me that I am His own. His love frees me from my past and makes me believe that I can do anything through Him who strengthens me. And when I worry, He comforts me and lets me know that all things will work together for good according to His purpose. So please don’t be offended that I didn’t return your call or text, we can catch up tomorrow. Today, I just needed some time alone with my Father.
