Women’s Spring Retreat 2018
May 4-6, 2018
Shrine Mont Conference Retreat Center
Our theme this year was about Mending Our Fence. The traditional Mending Fences ask us to mend the relationships in our lives that are broken, such as: Apologize to anyone that you hurt, and/or Ask forgiveness from any one that you did wrong to. This is not what we worked on.
We worked on mending ourselves, so we can become ONE with God and our surrounding’s and be ready to receive what the Lord is asking of us. When our personal fence is missing a post, or one is broken, this weakens our ability to hear, see or know what God is asking us to do. For example: I ignored a pain that I was having in my hip and eventually my body said enough is enough and I went down to the floor and I now had to do lots of extra things to fix this problem and it took twice as long because I waited for my body to stop me in my tracks before I listened. This became a problem because now I was not able to focus my attention on my daycare, family, church obligations, and my time with God, due to doctor appointments, physical therapy, MRI, x-rays, and now no motivation or strength to accomplish tasks without pain. My fence was broken in many ways. Always keep your fence whole and your link to God will stay connected, don’t ignore yourself. Here is one passage from the Bible that we used.
Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear because the water from the sanctuary flows between them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.
If there is no water for the fruit trees they will wither, and no fruit will grow. The trees will be useless. No life to share. We need to make sure that we are running our best.
May God Bless you
