I was ever so blessed by my mama to go on a prayer retreat. It was a wonderful experience. I read a lot of great devotional books, read the bible, and PRAYED.
Part of a prayer retreat is listening. Communication is a Two Way street. You can't do all the talking, asking, and petitioning and not listen to His reply or leading of His spirit.
I planned to take pictures but I forgot my camera and I was quite upset. I did journal A LOT!!!! I Cried A LOT! I had some garbage that needed to be ministered to, repentance had to take place, and I had to forgive some people that had hurt me. I thought I had forgave but upon investigating my heart I realized that I hadn't. I had to make some phone calls and reconcile with some people.
I had a good experience. The word SEEK and the messages, songs, and prayers that I felt and heard were all about Seeking God First. In the hustle and bustle of moving, and adjusting I had some how put the Lord on a back burner. I mean I still loved him, I still praised him, I read, and prayed and did my Pastor Wife duties....but I wasn't deeply and actively Seeking Him.
Hope you all had a good week.
