When this post goes live, we will be at a 2 day retreat with our church and I’m sure we’ll be having a great time.
Over the years, I have been to dozens of conferences and heavy Bible teaching courses, but there’s something incredibly special about retreats, whether big or small.
In our busy world, rarely do we get a chance to disconnect and be still,
And if we do, we generally fill that time with anything but God.
There’s always another thing to learn,
Another thing to study,
Another thing to experience,
And, of course, another thing to do.
And Christians aren’t exempt.
But instead of rushing to do your next task,
I encourage you to be still before Him.
Instead of rushing to learn something new,
Reflect on the things you already know.
Instead of praying for the big next thing,
Stand in awe of what He has done in your life.
All of these things are good,
But we tend to lean heavily on our next action,
And forget the relationship that God wants to have now.
So, you may not be on a physical retreat away,
But you can have (even now) a Spiritual retreat of rest for a few minutes.
I hope you do.
