Hidden Away

Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence....Ps 31:20
All our best experiences come when we are alone with God. 
There are sorrows which we can endure in no other place.
 Grief is of many kinds, 
but all grief that is really terrible and heart-crushing sends us 
into speechless solitude 
to weep it out upon the heart of God.
There are temptations which can be overcome only when alone with Him. 
The fight with the adversary is a solitary combat after all. And there are 
deep joys that can come into us only when alone with God, 
the joy of feeling Christ’s personal love, 
the joy of finding His strength made perfect in our weakness, 
the joy of bringing our empty vessels to the Divine fullness of His grace, 
waiting till He fills them, and seeing them overflow.
