The need for solitude and silence has never been greater, but our prioritization of these lost arts appears to be at an all-time low.
Our fast-paced, media-driven culture provokes envy for what looks like success in the lives of others—from singers, athletes, and entertainers, to speakers, leaders, and put-together social media influencers, all of whom seem to highlight how mundane our own lives feel. The fact is that many of us resent empty rooms, barren seasons, and dry places, where it seems that nothing we do is making an impact.
In this book, Justin Rizzo presents a much-needed paradigm shift that will have you thanking God for the hidden places in your life. Solitude and silence are not burdens to endure, but gifts to embrace—gifts you will never receive in a crowd, but will only discover in quiet places with God.
This timely and insightful book will awaken excitement in your heart for the secret places in your life as you discover that they are full of potential, purpose, and most importantly, His presence.
