Fresh water

I'm just back from a weekend at a women's retreat.

I feel like I just got some callouses scrubbed off my heart and it is raw and sensitive.

The idea was about our spirit.
Not the Holy Spirit, but our own personal spirit and it being wholly or partially asleep.

Then we looked at several verses that spoke of "awake, awake".

Like Isaiah 52.

How to wake your spirit?

Growing closer to and knowing God.

Knowing, like the biblical "know" . . .a very intimate way.

And God calls us . . . like a groom to a bride.
"Come away with me"

I'm glad you had a good retreat!

Sounds great! I felt that way a lot reading "Captivating", well the "come away with me" bridegroom part anyway... Glad you were able to get away and step things up a notch in your relationship with God.
