Welcome, my friends.
Whether one calls it 'Self-Denial', 'Soul Friendship', or 'Spiritual Disciplines', now that we have elaborated and on 'Spiritual Disciplines', and discussed for a season with the topic of Stress; let's resume more of the 'Spiritual Disciplines'.
I sincerely hope and pray that all in this series of posts will be advantageous to you for the purpose of growing in the knowledge and grace of the Lord. Amen. Amen.
As always, before we get started. Remember, these are 'tools', so let us not get anxious. Amen. Amen.
Continuing today, with some further posts since we began our series for anyone desiring to draw into a more intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ, with our Introductory Post A, Wednesday, April 3, 2019; Post B, Friday, April 5, 2019 ; Post C. Sunday, April 7, 2019; Post D, Wednesday, April 10, 2019; and Post E, Friday, April 12, 2019. We then continued to post on a bi-monthly basis on Sunday/Wednesday/Friday, until we finished. See, all the following, therefore.
Post 1, April 24, 2019; Post 2, April 26. 2019; Posts 3,4,5,6,7,8,9; May 5,8, 10, 19, 22, 24,2019, and so forth.
Remember to see our posts on 'Stress'; 'Service' and 'Fasting' posted June 2-5-7; 16-19-21, 2019-during our Sunday/Wednesday/Friday, bi-monthly posts.
Continuing today, July 26, 2019, our post series from July 7, 10, 12,21, 24, 2019, therefore. Let us look at some other 'disciplines' or habits of 'the Christian Way of Life' or 'habits' we can practice endeavoring to walk closer and closer with Our Lord and Savior. On our last posts, we covered 'service', and 'fasting'. [June 19, 21, 2019] Remember, the purpose of 'disciplines' is - 'Christian discipleship' - 'getting a better understanding of God, His Purposes for us, ever learning to become - in thoughts, words, and actions - JUST LIKE JESUS'.
LET US NOT MISS THIS MOST IMPORTANT OBJECTIVE - ALL FOR THE GLORY AND PRAISE OF GOD!! Amen. Amen.

Continuing - Bible Verses on Jesus’ Solitude and Silence
Here is a chronological survey of Bible verses from Mark that highlight Jesus’ solitude and silence. (I’ve added a few verses from the other Gospels. All verses are NIV84 unless indicated otherwise.)
Because of the length, there will be two parts posted today, Wednesday July 24, 2019 and another posted Friday July 26, 2019.
“Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them.” (Mark 9:2)
“After his brothers had gone up to the feast, then [Jesus] also went up, not publicly but in private.” (John 7:10, ESV). [Jesus walked 90 miles from Galilee to Jerusalem, which gave him about five days in solitude.]
“One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray.'” (Luke 11:1)
“Again [the religious leaders in Jerusalem] sought to arrest [Jesus], but he escaped from their hands. He went away again [walking about five miles] across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing at first, and there he remained. And many came to him.” (John 10:39-41, ESV)

“They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid.” (Mark 10:32.) [Apparently Jesus kept silent for most of the 22-mile hike. Luke says Jesus was “resolute” (9:51). He told them that he’d be tortured and killed in Jerusalem.]
“When [Jesus and his disciples] had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.” (Mark 14:26). This was Jesus’ “usual place” to pray when he was in Jerusalem. (Luke 22:39)

“They went to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Sit here while I pray.'” (Mark 14:32)
“They crucified [Jesus]… Darkness came over the whole land… Jesus called out with a loud voice, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.'” (Mark 15:25, 33; Luke 23:46).
Now, we have posted much in this series. Therefore, let me give you a 'rest' and 'review time'. We shall post the last topic, as the Lord wills, on 'simplicity' beginning Sunday, August 11, 2019. Coupled with 'silence' and 'solitude' as 'habits', you will find that there is a 'crown' in 'simplicity', sort of 'a road' into total peace. Please return, for you will clearly understand how to 'escape the darkness of this age', as you learn and practice these three 'habits' together, with the others we discussed in this 'series'. And yet, you will have 'spiritual' and 'material' abundance and no lack. You will be living a life of 'satisfaction', 'contentment', devoid of constant 'friction' and 'internal strife'. For real!
May you continue to be blessed in the Most Precious Name - Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, as you enjoy your review of all posted to date. As the Lord wills, we shall continue during the week of August 11-14- 16, taking up the topic of 'the Spiritual Discipline of Simplicity'. When really understood, this is or can be a 'training' which leads you to a more enjoyable life, enabling one to have more 'peace' than ever. This is especially true when you couple 'simplicity' with the other disciplines such as 'bible reading, praying, silence and solitude'. These have given me 'a peace that passes all understanding', even in 'the midst of any storms, trials or persecution or tribulation'. For real!" [Isaiah 9:6-7; 26:3, John 14:27;16:33; Philippians 4:7; 1 Peter 5:7] Amen. Amen. [Read more audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html]
