The Secret Place

“HE THAT DWELLETH IN THE SECRET PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH

SHALL ABIDE UNDER THE SHADOW OF THE ALMIGHTY.”

– Psalm 91:1

There is a place, a secret place where we can find refuge from the daily stresses of life, those besetting troubles that often leave us perplexed and wondering, “why, Lord?” Women who resort to this quiet sanctuary find the strength to move forward, to meet the challenges of the day with courage and confidence. We understand that this secret place belongs to God alone. He beckons us to come closer to Him, to find all that we need, all that is truly important, all that is meaningful to our happiness in life.

In this private and secluded place, we discover the value in our experiences, good and bad. We see things as they really are; not disguised, neither distorted by our human reasoning. When the veil is lifted during our visits to this solitary place, we see Him more clearly—a God of love and compassion who shows us ourselves. It is then we realize that to “do unto others” is truly the golden rule of life.Scotland 058
