You can always find a reason not to go to the women’s retreat.
“It’s out of my comfort zone & a little scary.”
“A whole weekend. Who will ………?”
“It’s not worth the hassle.”
Here’s why you should go to the retreat:
1. Because it’s hard to hear God’s voice above the noise of everyday life.
When is the last time you sat before God without a To Do list prodding you? If you can’t remember, you need to attend a retreat.
“To retreat” means to leave your “normal” and go to a place of safety, quiet, and seclusion. You physically remove yourself from life’s distractions and demands in order to make space for God. If you think you’re less spiritual because you struggle to hear from God in the business of your daily life, be encouraged. Even Jesus recognized the value and need to get away.
2. Because we need each other.
Faith is contagious.
When you pray for others, and they pray for you, you know you are not alone, no matter how heavy your burden is. Some years your faith strengthens others, and other years our faith strengthens you. Together we bear each other’s burdens.
I’ve never regretted attending a retreat, but I’ve often regretted not attending. If you’ve never attended a retreat, or you haven’t in a while, why not make plans to attend this one? You’ll be glad you did.
