Just as promised, LIFT’s Summer Refresher on August 2 was a time to be renewed and restored and to gain fresh insight into God’s Word. In the way Jesus invited us to do in Matthew 11:28-30, we put life on hold for a few hours to rest in Him and become better acquainted with His “unforced rhythms of grace.”
Joan Webb did an awesome job of leading us, sharing her story of God’s grace as it drew her away from the tyranny of “perfection” and into His freedom and rest. If you haven’t yet checked out Joan’s ministry you can do so here: JoanCWebb.com. You’ll also find the beautiful poem Joan promised to share with us–it’s on her blog.
From the moment I walked into the room that morning I felt like I was exactly where God wanted me to be for the day, hearing just what I was supposed to hear. I came away encouraged in my faith, inspired for ministry, and ready to move forward in His strength.
If you were there I would love to hear your comments on the day. Were you as blessed as I was?
Mark your calendars–next LIFT meeting is September 13 at The Church at Arrowhead. More info coming soon.
