These past two semester’s God has given us a taste of finding our soul’s deepest delight in Jesus Christ! Many of you have testified of your joy in encountering the LORD’s presence and experiencing His faithfulness and all-sufficiency in life-changing ways! Praise the LORD; He has done great things for us! I can say that my mind and my emotions have been shaped by our study in the Psalms! Although our summer break is fast approaching, I am praying that you will continue to pursue Christ in the study of His Word, fervent in prayer, boiling hot in spirit and steadfast in service!
Finally, I want to personally invite you to join me in spending a day retreat with Jesus for spiritual refreshment, restoration and meditation! The Fully Alive Spring Fling will be held at our family Lodge near Crossville, TN. Here is a preview:
Think about the delight of being in the presence of God all day long! You will be completely surrounded by our Creator’s majesty through the sights and sounds of wide open fields, bubbling creeks, waterfalls, walking trails, and gorgeous mountain ridges. We will spend the morning together in worship and the Word, followed by a delicious lunch and several hours for you to be alone with Jesus. You will need your Bible, your journal and/or your art medium. The day of prayer-filled worship and meditation will end with a time of sharing, testimony and ministering to one another in prayer.
