Have you ever felt so relaxed and so comfortable to a place where you can open up? It could be in your room, in the comfort room, in the garden or somewhere else undisturbed. I got to have my own.For me, I found a place for my soul in the rooftop. It’s not literally a “roof” on top”, but an open concrete space on top of the building. In my most time to reflect and seek God, I go up on the ‘rooftop’ and I look up to the vastness of the sky, this gives me a clear outlook that thru this vast I can relate it to the power of God. I feel peace inside having the chance to be intimate with Him there talking and reflecting and just opening up anything especially the things that weighs me down.
A couple of times my Dgrp sister, May ,when she visits and go overnight in my house, we go up there- in the evening watching the moon and before the sunrise–praying and opening up about life and its struggles. It’s good to pray there in the rooftop- I feel the presence of God thru the vastness that I see and the air that I breathe there that really refresh my body. I always believe that God is with me, Just being with me, listening to me. During my spare time, I just watch the moon as it goes up-especially on full moon days, and also watching sunrise early morning is so good too, feels like a new start,a new day for a surprise from God. Rest assured half to an hour when I go down from the ‘rooftop’ I am refreshed, renewed, and refueled
–In the rooftop I find a place for my soul- my personal sanctuary.
“How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number-living things both large and small. (Psalm 104:24-25)
“He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing. He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight. He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his clouds over it. The pillars of the heavens quake, aghast at his rebuke. By his power he churned up the sea…. By his breath the skies become fair…. And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! How then can we understand the thunder of his power?” (Job 26:7-9, 11-14)
