Just like a deer pants for water after a run in the fields, that is how my heart is longing for You. Many times I have desired to retreat to a place that is quiet, that is full of the beauty of Your creation, that is free from distractions. I want to spend uninterrupted time with You so that I can know You better and love You more. I want to hear You speak about Your will for my life, about Your will for the world. …
I want to learn how to do Your work in the way You want it done. I just want to spend some quiet time with You, God. I just want to pray.
Thank You, Father, that Emerald Hills can be such a place. Fulfill that vision for Emerald Hills. Make it a place to pray, retreat, and learn.
In the Name of Jesus, Amen."
