I am so excited about this upcoming retreat.... just excited. Well, I guess anytime I have a divine appointment, I get excited to be honest. It is like a hot date date with the man of your dreams. And for me this one is with my heavenly father. We get away together and I get to spend time with HIM uninterrupted. We talk. I talk and He listens. Sometimes I have a load of questions, some times I ramble, sometimes I tell HIM intimate things about me. But He listens. And when I am quiet, guess what... He talks and I listen. Just one word from HIM always brings about a life change.
Sometimes I cry. I tell him about my fears, my pains, my insecurites and areas in my life that I have failed. My father is so compassionate. He wipes my tears away and comforts me in a way that no one else can. The comforter, the friend, the spirit of truth is always present before me, ready to guide me and direct me at all times. At times He is like FIRE...and then there are times where He comes with such a sweet gently presence, that fills the entire room! I live for these times with HIM. Right now I feel like a prom date has been set and I am just counting down the days until we meet. Praises to a wonderful God of all who loved us so much that he gave HIS son Jesus, the lover of my soul, to save as well as embrace one such as myself.
