Feeding Your Spirit

By Dennis

Let's get right to it, what is this big secret that you say is so life changing. Well it is so easy, but yet seems so hard to do at the same time. You need to take the time to get away on for a retreat to dedicate your time and energy with your church family to learn, have some peace and time for yourself. That is why I would suggest a retreat center that is dictated in creating an environment to help you on your spiritual journey like Lake Williamson Christian Center. It is a place where it's very mission statement says that its purpose is to help you to have that special place where you can restore, renew and reconnect with God.

  • Restore – The dictionary uses words like "bring back or return" as examples to help us understand want it means. When I think of it in that way it says I had something, something very close and dear to me, but somehow it has gotten lost or pushed back. Even though it is so valuable to me, it is not at the forefront of my life now.
  • Renew – Now that I realize that want is most important to me, my relationship with Almighty God has been pushed back. What is the next step? What can I do to rekindle and recharge my spirit to get me back to the place I want to be?
  • Reconnect – One of the best ways to start your journey is to get away from all the distractions. I know this sounds hard if almost impossible, there is always too much that you have to do. This is all true, your family, job and all those things that consume your time are important. But when you make God first, when you reconnect with him, your perspective with everything else takes on a whole new light.

Please be sure that you are not alone. Talk with your pastor, church family or bible study group. I'm sure many of them are feeling the same way.

Make that decision; don't put it off any longer.

I think Mark Twain says it best "Twenty years from now you will regret the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do"
