Thank you to those of you who wished me well while I was at a Ladies' Retreat last night and today and said you would like to hear about it.
The theme was "Inter-rupted", relating to how God interrupts our plans for our lives with blessings and crisises, and always blesses us greatly even through the storms.
The keynote speakers were Jen Hatmaker and Esther Burroughs,
and Praise and Worship was led by Christy Nockels.
Esther spoke about "Splashing the Living Water" and "Going out of your way on your way" and "turning the conversation" with others to Jesus.
Jen's husband, Brandon is pastor of Austin New Church in Austin, Texas.
She told us that the story of Mary and Martha isn't just a story about "being still".
It is about CHOOSING TO BE A DISCIPLE-AN IMITATOR OF JESUS.
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace,
who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation,
who say to Zion,
"Your God reigns!"
My heart is aching tonight to be alert
to the Holy Spirit to tell me
where God wants my feet to go
to proclaim peace,
to take good tidings,
to proclaim salvation,
to say to all,
"My God reigns!"
"My God can meet your need."
"How can I help meet your
physical and spiritual needs?"
