"As Christians, we are called to convert our loneliness into solitude.
We are called to experience our aloneness not as a wound but as a gift--as God's gift--so that in our aloneness we might discover how deeply we are loved by God."
Anyway, back to the topic! My best times with God have been almost scheduled alone time with God. In college, during leadership camps for IVCF, we would have a "Retreat of Silence". It didn't mean that you had to be quiet, but that it was time for you and God to connect - not you and other people. Then we would come together for dinner and share what God showed us during that time. I remember vividly after 15+ years those hours of time focusing on God and singing praise songs. I often long for that - time to just focus on God, but admittedly, if I have time alone I don't usually choose that option. Maybe it is about time to seek that "solitude" and be reminded of God's great love for me.
