Do I have the fortitude to accept unexpected solitude
With gratitude or do I delude myself into thinking
That I can only stand in rectitude among the masses?
What passes for peace of soul and such sweet serenity
When you extrude placidity accrued in skewed heart?
Do I not know that I can accept solitude in gratitude?
Do I not have the aptitude to exclude all the clamor
Of the world as I seclude myself in sweetest solitude?

  1. See this is what I mean :-). Questions asked and answers up to the reader to embrace and accept solitude in gratitude; a solitary state!

  2. If we want to be transformed, we need to follow His example. We cannot give unless our cup is full. The cup won’t be full until we take time to fill it. And in Solitude is where all of this happens.
    May your cup overflow Jonathan!

    1. Yes, I am learning this lesson, and it’s difficult for me because I abhor loneliness. But what I’m learning now it that solitude is not the same as loneliness because I’m never truly alone. God is with me in my solitude, and often times this is when He speaks most clearly!

      1. Yes, I absolutely agree. It is a difficult thing to learn, but given all that you know about God and His omnipresence, just like you said – you are never alone.
        His still voice often gets hushed down by things we surround ourselves.
        Prayers are for you for this area my friend.
