I AM REFRESHED! This past weekend, I was blessed to attend the annual Zion ladies retreat. What an amazing weekend! I loved the speaker, Holly Woodard. I loved the fellowship. I loved the lack of sleep :). I loved hearing what God has to say about emotions. As a woman, I surely can attest that I have emotions and OFTEN, I am driven by them. Sometimes in a good way and sometimes in a bad way. It's so important to keep our emotions in check....soooo important! We had 3 sessions. I am going to break it down in 3 different posts, as I remember.
***Soul = the part that makes you who you are. Emotions are universal...E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E has them and women are often driven by them.
***Are you living for the 2 things that mean the most? 1) word of God and 2) souls of men
***How many of us PURPOSEFULLY empty spaces on our calendar in our lives. (can I just admit now that I am sooo guilty of NOT giving myself the time I need to be with God.) As women, we excel at multi-tasking..we need to find some time for stillness... CAN I GET AN AMEN!!!!
***You cannot have soul rest if you don't have a relationship with Christ
***3 questions you need to ask and answer for yourself...
1) What really matters in my life?
2) Who is my God?
3) Who does God say that I am?
I know, pretty good stuff, huh?
Here are some pictures from the weekend. I love these ladies and am blessed immeasurably by them!
