Another Day with Terry Fowler

THE GOLDEN LIGHTS, THE LOVING © 2010 Neal Fowler more info (via: Wylio)When I started putting together this proposal, hideaways came to mind. We know criminals have hideaways, sometimes sweethearts meet in hideaways and kids sometimes have favorite places where they go to hide. I love North Carolina so they had to be NC hideaways.

That said, I got to thinking how we as people often try to hide from the things that trouble us. In Peace, Be Still, Katy came to Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach, NC seeking the one thing she treasures most in life. While there, she finds so much more - peace, love and a hideaway from the overwhelming demands of her parents.

Sadly, people also hide from God. We try to, but it's never a possibility. God knew us before He knit us together in the womb and knows what the future holds. He knows the decisions we'll make and allows us to make them and through it all He's waiting for us to accept Him and trust Him to be our protector and the lover of our soul.

As you read Peace, Be Still, consider how much more peace Katy could have found if she'd put her faith in Jesus to bring her through. And know that peace can easily be yours.

If problems in your life are having you seek a hideaway, remember Jesus is just one prayer away.

Speaking of prayer, do you have a favorite time to pray or a favorite place?


  1. My favorite place is no longer accessible to me :( At the church I went to at my University, we had a 24/7 prayer week, and there was a special room in the basement set up for it. Candles, music, muted lights, pillows, bibles, journals...that space was the one space on earth where I could go and know that only God could see me, only He could hear me, and I felt so at peace there. Unfortunately, I've moved back home, and it isn't economical to drive over an hour every time I feel the urge to pray!

  2. I especially like to pray early in the morning and late at night. And when the weather is nice I enjoy going outside and praying there--it's so peaceful when all I hear are the birds singing in the trees!
    Blessings, Patti Jo :)
