God is good. I’ve wanted to attend a Walk to Emmaus for the past 20 years, but it didn’t happen until this past weekend. I was ready for the Emmaus weekend, and God’s timing was evident. The weekend also fit like a hand in a glove with the Bible study I’ve been sharing with a group of ladies on the book of Philippians.
It was a three-day weekend of experiencing God’s love – of bathing in it and basking in the Son shine.
It was a weekend of rounding out my faith – of spending time digesting the many facets of God’s love and my response to it. A weekend to challenge me in the areas where I’ve been falling short of God’s best – where I need to trust him more and let him lead.
It was a weekend of connecting with others who shared common backgrounds – common hurts and needs.
And now it is time for the “Fourth Day”…
I am prayerfully letting go of some responsibilities, especially in areas where I have felt like I have been spinning my wheels but going nowhere.
I am challenging myself to be more attentive to my role as wife and helpmeet, and to be more productive on the home front.
I must eliminate a lot of clutter in my life, beginning in my office and home; and with Christ’s support re-establish priorities in a way that brings order and peace, and that frees me to share my faith according to God’s leading.
