retreat: reveal

Day two of my retreat I woke up feeling refreshed and renewed already. I was a little puzzled why I didn’t do this more often! I also realized by breakfast that this would be a “working vacation”. God and I had a few things that needed to be discussed and worked through and it wasn’t going to be easy.

Tuesday’s word was reveal. I revealed some fears and worries that I’ve carried for far too long and He reminded me of the bigger picture in life and why I didn’t have to be concerned for anything. By my afternoon reflection time I started to see things that God wanted to reveal to me. This was a beautiful, yet challenging time. I spent a lot of this time in prayer and asking God to continue to reveal his plan to me- in the perfect timing.
