Come with Me to a Quiet Place

Come Away with Me to a Quiet Place Wendy L. Macdonald

When I saw the prompt “with,” I immediately thought of the #verseoftheday I picked out during my quiet time.

It begins with: Come with me.

Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place

and get some rest.

Mark 6:31 NIV

I don’t want to walk this life alone. It’s scary. It’s hard. I’m glad I always have someone walking with me: Jesus. Christmas is about the One who will always be with us and will never leave us.

Emmanuel means: God with us.

With is a wonderful word.

When I wrote my poem for the day, I looked back and noticed the word with was written five times. Yes, I love believing He is with me every step of this life.
I am praying for many others to walk with Him too. I’m praying they’ll also come away with Jesus to a place of rest and restoration. My quiet time is my refuge of serenity. No matter how hard a week is, it’s easier to endure when I’ve come away with Jesus for a few minutes each day.

Come Away with Me to a Quiet Place Wendy L. Macdonald

Are you weary with worry?
Come find a quiet place
And meet with the Good Teacher
Who showers His students with grace
Are you tense with trials?
Come find a place of rest
And meet with the Good Teacher
Where you’ll be deeply blessed.

  1. I love that verse! And I need the reminder. It makes such a difference when we take time to withdraw from the busyness of life and go to a quiet place with Jesus!

  2. WendyMac, This was beautiful.

    Favorite “with” verse? 1 Corinthians 15:10 – “I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me.”

  3. Isaiah 40:31 – “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not be faint.”

  4. Just beautiful Wendy! I’ll have to think on my favorite verse! I’m adding yours here to my list tho! Thanks for sharing it! Cindy
