What a Weekend!

WOW! There is not much more I can say about this weekend to sum it up than just WOW!

What a powerful weekend full of the WORD! We spent hours upon hours hearing the Truth of His Word and disecting His Word and digging into His Word. We discovered treasure after treasure in the scriptures. We learned, we gleaned, we worshipped. We praised, we prayed, we exalted!

It was glorious! It was awesome! It was such a precious time of renewal and revival. A time of repentance and restoration. A time of drawing in and pouring out.

We studied, we shared, we were blessed. There is nothing like 350 women of God raising their voices in prayer and praise. Singing our hearts out to the Lord. Worshipping with all that we are. Worshipping God for who He is. Basking in the Glory of our Lord and King.

The presence of God was surely in that place. His Spirit fell down on that pavillion like a mighty wind. We were immersed and saturated. We experienced love and sweet mercy. We experienced true worship. We experienced hungering and thirsting for more.

We experienced God.

"I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the LORD, who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel." (Isaiah 45:3)

Beth,

How awesome is God that He refreshed all of you with His living waters! I can only imagine the tears of joy that were shed as you bonded and formed new friendships and families in Jesus.

Thank you so much for sharing this and Praise God for all His wonders that never cease to amaze us.

It does sound like you had a better weekend than I did but you know what? Even while I was at that concert, I looked up at the sky and tunned out the music and God was there too. He's everywhere.

It's been awhile since I've been to a woman's retreat, and now I'm eager to do so again. They truly are a unique opportunity to glorify the Lord while being stirred to live on higher ground.
