Are you coming apart?

"If we don't come apart for a while, 

we will come apart after awhile."
-Dallas Willard

 "Solitude is not turning one's back on the world: 

it is turning our face toward God."  

--Thomas Merton

"Turn your loneliness into solitude and your solitude into prayer.  

 In solitude you learn to nourish in your heart 

 the lively longing for God."

--Elisabeth Elliot

Might you consider coming apart from the world 

for a while?  

What would it look like to set apart a time 

to just be with God for a while?
