Today as I sit here doing last minute retreat plans I can't help but think about all the women that will be at the retreat, as well as all the women reading this today.
My heart is to love women, encourage them, motivate them, understand them, and just be here to help when I can. I truly believe that I was put on this earth to take care of my family and love women!
I am trying very hard to keep my head above water and recognize that this retreat is about God and what He is going to do in our heart....and nothing else! The "stuff" will get done, the mistakes will get fixed, the anxiety will fade....
What really matters most are the hearts of each woman that will be there on Friday and I am trying my hardest to keep my eyes fixed on God so He will continually remind me of that over the next 24 hours!
I wanted to share a few verses for all of you women, regardless if you are going to be there this weekend, and share a few thoughts from one of my favorite devotionals.
And I added these silly pictures in between :)
For my eyes are toward You, O GOD, the Lord; In You I take refuge; do not leave me defenseless.
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
He will once again fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy!
I love you, Lord; you are my strength.
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.
When I am afraid, I will put my trust in Thee.
I Will lift up my eyes to the mountains; From whence shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.
And last, this is a letter from God to us women from my favorite book.
Believe and cling to it!!!
I have always known you, always loved you, always been with you. When you were formed, I was with you in your mother's womb. When you took your first breath, I was breathing through you. I know your past and I know your future. I will walk you through every season of your life, My beloved. I am with you now in spirit. I am all your new beginnings and your endings. You are part of Me, My love. I love you!
Love, Your Prince
