Boy oh boy do I have a lot to share:) What a blessing retreats are… God spoke to me in so many ways I am just awestruck by his mercy, power, and love! Not only do I feel revived but I feel encouraged to share me experience with anyone who reads this post!
The retreat took place at a place called Lake Champion which is owned by Young life! If you are ever on a planning committee and you are thinking of upstate New York for your event make sure you check out this space. Absolutely wonderful staff, beautiful grounds, and fun activities. Here are a few picks of the drive there.
So the retreat was jammed packed with services, reflection time, small groups, and plenty of activities. The first full day I woke up really early and decided to walk the premises then I did some yoga and an ab workout. I felt so motivated and calmed by the natural beauty and fresh air! Later that day I accomplished a ropes course from tree top to tree top ( ONLY BY GOD’S GRACE). Overall this was honestly a wonderful experience and I meet some incredible people who will be featured on the blog in the near future. My spirit has been revived and I have totally surrendered to God’s will! Satan tried to attack me upon my return but he hasn’t blown my high, I have peace in my soul and I am standing on God’s word! Now if I could just plan a yoga retreat or a “Bush Detox” to Jamaica I will be throughly pleased with myself:)
Have you been on a spiritual retreat lately? If so how have you maintained your positive outlook and reinforced new behaviors since your return?
