So, this morning, I went for a run, made some breakfast and settled down to have some time with the man upstairs. I flipped through my devotional book to today's date, July 29th. The passage of scripture to read was from Psalm 34:1-7...it was on fear. I find it incredible and quite humbling that God had ordained this passage for today! Humbling because God used the very same passage that we're using for our retreat to remind me of His promises and not to fear!
I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and be glad. 3Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together!
4I sought the LORD, and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.
5Those who look to him are radiant,
and their faces shall never be ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him
and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the LORD encamps
around those who fear him, and delivers them.
Now, the feeling is gone and I'm confident the Lord has placed this vision and idea on my heart for His glory...phew, that's a relief! Anyways, if you think about it, please pray for our retreat and that God will show up in major ways, all the kinks will be worked out and ladies will actually attend!! :)
If you want to attend, it'll be on the weekend of October 1st & 2nd (yes, it's a VT away game) and will take place at the Sheraton Hotel & Conference Center in Roanoke, VA! The theme is from Psalm 34:8, "Taste and see that the Lord is good. Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!"....yes, there will be great food, fun, and cupcakes! :)
Hope you can come!!
