If you had to spend one year living alone in a remote cabin, what would you spend your time doing?
(And let’s assume there is no access to Internet)
Being alone would be the perfect time for me to finish the best book I've never completely read, the Bible. I'm ashamed to say it, but I haven't finished the old testament. I've made it up to the prophets, specifically Jeremiah. I've found myself doing more "light" reading of the Bible with devotional books that concentrate on specific themes instead of just reading straight through it. There's no excuse. I just haven't made myself sit down and finish it. Of course, I would bring along lots of other books as well.
I would also focus on writing, starting first with my life story and how God has moved me to this point in my life followed by an attempt at fiction. I've been entertaining the idea lately that I would like to pursue my writing. I'm fairly comfortable with and very much enjoy writing about my life, but the more I read, the more interested I've become in making an attempt at fiction writing.
Hopefully, the secluded cabin I'm inhabiting will be next to a lake; therefore, I could enjoy lots of time in and around the water. This would be the most peaceful place to me. I think this atmosphere would be the best place to really relax and listen to God!
