A place to escape to… {daily prompt}

My Secret Place

I go there to dance when I’m happy.

I go there to cry when I’m sad.

I go there when I feel overwhelmed with the circumstances of life.

I go there to seek God’s guidance before I make big decisions.

I go there when I’m going through storms.

I go there when life brings me to my knees.

I go there to journal about everything on my heart.

I go there to escape the noisiness of the world.

I go to be there to be alone with God.

I go there to remember what life is all about.

Sometimes I go there for no reason at all….

It’s my personal oasis. My sercret place. My sanctuary. My place for God and me.

I drive on a windy road to get there.

I walk down wooden steps to the water down below.

I usually find a rock to sit on underneath a tree.

I pull out my journal, my Bible, (and sometimes my coffee or tea).

I watch the waves as they crash around me.

I listen to the birds chirping sweet melodies.

And for just a few hours I get to escape the world around me…

This is my secret place. My escape. My sanctuary. My place for just God and me.

What is your secret place?

  1. I am still looking for my secret place. It seems no where in my house is inescapable from other people. I try going to my room and setting on my bed and its not two seconds before someone is coming through the door. I go to the bathtub and that doesn’t stop them either. If it weren’t so cold I could go to the park or to the woods, however the cold and I do not agree. Any suggestions?


    • Well… I’m not sure where you live or what kind of “nature getaways” you have there, but when it’s cold sometimes I like to just drive to a pretty park and sit in my car with my music on and maybe something hot to drink and I have my “alone time” there. Or you can bundle up and bring a warm blanket with you and go on a nice walk somewhere (like a beach or a river) where there aren’t too many people around. Sometimes I just walk to an Elementary school near my house that has a swingset and I can just sit there for a while. When I was younger my “secret place” was the closet underneath my staircase at home. It was big and we didn’t store anything in it (other than on the hangers) so I would put a whole bunch of blankets and pillows there and just talk to God there…

      There are a lot of places you can go. Sometimes you just need to be a little bit creative in thinking up the options you have available for you. I hope you find that special place soon! 🙂
