Women’s Retreat Reflections Part 4

Our final testimony of our October retreat was from our Pastor’s wife. She shared her childhood and how VERY hard it was. She shared how her literal scars shaped the adult she became. She described her come to Jesus moment as a washing in front of Him and God the Father smiling on her at an altar call. She shared how her husband gave her a Jesus like love. A love that was unconditional despite her flaws.

God and Jesus love like that.

They love us despite of flaws. He heals are scars and accepts us just as we are. He cares about our past, present, and future days. Steph has found her calling as working with youth. Her own children and the children of the King that cross her path in churches and now at a theme park where she works. She knows that God is a part of it ALL.

“and provide for those who grieve in Zion-to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, a garmet of praise…” Isaiah 61:3

Dear God,

Bless our times with you. Give us the desire to walk down to the altars of our churches with the need for your unfailing grace. Let us feel the washing of your love and see the smile from your face when we gaze upon the cross. Thank you for always loving me. Thank you for smiling down upon me and my family. Give me a heart that seeks you day by day.
