"Christ Himself will RESTORE, Establish and Strengthen you!" 1 Peter 5:11
We have made it... My favorite time of the year... Spring Retreat! This year our theme will be RESTORE and we will be diving into one of my favorite topics... HEALING! We live in a broken world, mostly due to original sin, we live in a post fall world and want to be reminded/ be restored to the pre-fall mentality. Whether we want to admit it or not we are all broken. Each of us is wounded, our wounds may be caused by our parents or other family members, friends, relationships, friends, our own sins, and so much more. The problem is this world tells us that we can deal with our issues ourselves, or to turn to things of this world, but this just leads us to more self-destruction. This isn't the plan God originally had for us. He wants us to be Free, joyful, Loved, Restored! I invite you to join me on this journey towards happiness. This Lent the Lord is calling you to surrender all your worries and suffering to the foot of His Cross! Will you Respond?
As many of you know we were suppose to have a retreat in October but it didn't work out, In preparation for that retreat I had listed some reasons why you should go on a retreat... So I want to share them with you again...
I'm praying for each of your hearts, that the Lord may begin to soften it so that you may be able to truly receive all that he has in store for you!.
