A Journey for One Thing
Hey Y’all! Thanks for tuning in. Some of you I’ve known for a long, long time and some of you are recent new friends. Welcome! I believe we all have this “one thing” in common. We desire to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ and live in abundance through His Life.
Recently I asked a group of ministry wives this question: “Do you find it difficult to carve out time in your schedule to be still before the Lord and listen for His voice? If so, what would you say is one of the main distractions to this?”
These are some responses from these amazing women in the trenches of daily ministry:
“Sometimes I find we are too busy doing God’s work that we forget to take the time to be still and listen to God.”
“It is something different and sometimes the same thing. Whether it be your job, family (young children or older children),… I have been in a place in my life over the last 15 months when I have had been pushed to the point where I am desperate for my time with Him…I have learned that the more time I spend with God, the more I crave my time with Him.”
Can you relate?
The thought behind this newsletter is to encourage you in your own journey with the Lord. I want to offer you hope as a fellow sister in Christ, that the “King is enthralled by your beauty” and He desires you to be in His Presence more than you know.
As David prayed “one thing have I asked of the Lord.” in Psalm 27, so I am asking for you and I that our own desire would be for His Presence, to still ourselves before Him, to gaze upon His beauty, and to hear His voice.
And we can depend upon His Presence within us to help.
And we can help and encourage one another.
Here is just one of suggestion for your own personal time with the Lord. We offer this and many others in our “One Thing Worship Retreats” that have been so special.
Make it a Date!
~ having a consistent time and place is helpful in your quiet time with the Lord; same room, same chair, same time of day. This is by no means “law,” just suggestions for you if you’re struggling. Also, extended times away, like “One Thing Worship Retreat,” are great for extra time to be with Him.
“ONE THING” is a gathering of women in an intimate setting, to pause and pull away from the rush of life with the intentional purpose of being with Jesus. With focused time to worship God, study and pray His Word, and listen for His voice, “ONE THING” gives time and place both for individual and shared times of devotion.
If you are looking for a great women’s retreat idea for refreshment and renewal, consider a “One Thing Worship Retreat.”
Special thanks to the women who shared their hearts and took time to respond!
Enjoy His Presence today!
