These are all places that I think of when I think about a time of refreshing and relaxation.
Did you know that restoration and refreshment is available to us daily. While we can sometimes get caught up in the day-to day. God wants us to know that he is our place of peace and solace.
“God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.” Psalms 46:1 NLT
This weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Ladies God encounter at my church. It was a time of intentional surrender and refreshing led by the Holy Spirit. It was a real blessing to be able to gather with other women and rejoice, release, and respond in different areas of our lives for the glory of God. Women had the opportunity to fellowship, learn, be set free from past and current strongholds, and more.
I served and received while at the event. I was blessed to pray and encourage others. It was a celebration to witness women giving their lives to God for the first time and others rededicating their lives to God. I rejoiced as I saw some receiving a new words from the Lord, some excepting past words that was confirmed.
The Holy Spirit was free to have HiS way and Gods love flowed in every person in attendance in different ways.
“Your love has given me much joy and comfort, my brother, for your kindness has often refreshed the hearts of God’s people.”
Philemon 1:7 NLT
Our church also has men and kids God encounters as an additional opportunity to draw near to God.
I encourage you to find events where you can be with like minds and be refilled on a regular basis.
