Alone with Jesus

Jesus sought His Father in prayer, often going off alone, away from the chaos and multitudes surrounding him.  How much more should we make time each day to spend alone with Jesus?  He longs to fellowship with us, encourage us, and prepare us for the day. 

The video below is an absolutely beautiful and touching version of the song, “In the Garden”, sung by my niece, Olivia.  Her humble spirit, pure heart and love for the Lord echoes through each word.  Her voice is coupled with a sampling of John’s photos of God’s colourful creative works.

May these combined contributions bring glory to the Lord and encourage you to draw away and spend time with Him.  As Spurgeon wrote:

Let us not see the face of man today until we have seen Jesus.”

In the Garden

I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear, falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses

And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am His own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known

He speaks and the sound of His voice
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing

And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am His own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known

I’d stay in the garden with Him
‘Tho the night around me be falling
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling

And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am His own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known

words and music by Charles Austin Miles, 1913
