Going on that retreat was like pushing a reset button. I became aware of things I had not realized before. Truly being attentive of what He wants to place on my heart. The retreat staff offered the tools for me to connect with the Lord on an entirely new level. I never knew this kind of experience was even possible. The Lord and I, on this retreat, together. Jesus giving me a glimpse of how He sees me! It filled me with the purest joy! It was unlike anything I’ve felt before. Now if the experience I had was even a slice of what heaven is like, I cannot imagine what more He has in store for me.
A few Sundays ago, Fr. Dennis spoke about faith. During that weekend, I saw that same faith in everyone. We cannot physically see the Lord, yet I saw Him that weekend. We cannot physically hear or touch Him, yet I felt Him and heard Him as well. I had faith that if I showed up, kept an open heart and mind, the Lord would do the rest. Looking back, it is amazing to see the way that God moved, and still moves, through all of us.
There is another retreat approaching, and I hope you can join us! Between group prayer, private prayer, testimonies, prayer teams, food and fellowship, you will not want the weekend to end. There are so many obstacles and distractions in the world that hinder our relationships and pull our faith from the Lord. This retreat is an amazing opportunity to reconnect with God on a deeper level.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
