Minute Meditations

God Builds a Rhythm

We build a rhythm of daily solitude into life in order to clarify and reaffirm the primacy of God. God alone is God and no other. Daily life tends to turn us away from such awareness with its concerns and chaotic busyness. The rhythm of regular prayer in solitude turns us back to it. It gives us the opportunity to reaffirm again that God is, and only God. As time passes, that truth deepens within one’s heart. It keeps a sustained focus on God and slowly develops a rhythm of interior continuity that solidifies that perspective with deeper and deeper conviction.
