The cloistered garden

Inside each person's heart, in the innermost place, is a cloistered garden, and there God lives and waits for us. But all too often we live outside and lose ourselves. God is within but sometimes we are without.

How much God must long for us to come and quietly meet in that secluded garden. And with what love God waits for us. 'Come to Me when you are heavy burdened.' God longs to meet us there, in the secret place, and touch us where we hurt, and show us we are treasured and loved.
