  1. What a beautiful post! I was that little girl also, although my place with in my home church when no one else was there. I would play the piano, sing, pray, or just be quiet. These days it is hard to find a quiet place, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

  2. I was just thinking about this recently, wondering where that little girl went. Where did the joy go? My homelife was terrible, but somehow, my little heart knew that Jesus was good, and He was with me in the chaos. I used to sing these silly made-up songs to him, out loud, all the way home as I walked the sidewalks after school. I miss her.

  3. I really identify with that little girl’s experience. Thank you for sharing. If you don’t mind, I’d like to link to this on my blog @Life Beyond PBJ. It goes right along with my Season of Quiet. Thanks again!

  4. What a precious post 🙂

    Where do I feel closest to Jesus? It may seem like an obvious answer…. but in The Word. He meets us there 🙂 He can’t help but meet us there….because He IS The Word! John 1:14 and Revelation 19:13 say so! Cool huh?

    May the Lord reveal Himself to you in Scripture today, friends 🙂

    Kate 🙂

  5. One of those closest experiences is when I first wake up in the morning, I sense Him already there waiting for me to take another day’s journey with Him, and for the first few minutes, it is just us, I love that!

  6. Seems strange, but I feel closest to Jesus in the shower. Washing the busy day and mistakes down the drain…ready to start again.

  7. Leslie, I agree. I hear from the Lord in the shower. Sometimes I’m not particularly listening and He’s there speaking to me. It’s the only place I can hide from my five kids and the Lord seems to know it, too.

  8. Such a beautiful piece, Lisa. I most feel Jesus in my quiet place in the morning and in the midst of my noisy days when it’s only God that helps me get through them. I am so glad He is who He is.

    Thanks for sharing your heart.
