A Spa for the Soul

This weekend my church is hosting its first Women's Retreat in many years. The title of the retreat is "A Spa for the Soul," and the keynote addresses and breakout sessions carry out this theme.

In fact, I have expanded upon this post and will be leading a breakout session entitled "A Spiritual Pedicure." I haven't spoken to a large group (of adults) since I quit teaching over five years ago.

I would covet your prayers for this weekend, specifically, that I am able to conquer any nervousness or anxiety that I may feel and that I humble myself to be a conduit for the Holy Spirit. I would also ask you to pray that the weekend is a time of renewal and rejuvenation for the women of St. Luke, that hearts would be touched, and that the event is the impetus for closer friendships among the women and closer relationships with God.

Thank you in advance for your prayers. I will take pictures and post on the retreat next week. Also, stay tuned for an interview with Nancy Twigg and a giveaway!

Lord, I bring Celly B to your throne room today. You know her heart, you know her mind. Comfort her heart and bring peace to her mind. Lord, help Celly B to step aside in order to let your glory shine through in everything she says this weekend. Prepare the hearts of all attending that they may be ripe for your harvest. Open the eyes of our hearts Lord ~ we want to see you. Amen.

I'm praying, Celly. This morning, the Lord gave me "refresh" for "A Spa for the Soul" and led me to these Scriptures:

"... he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed." (Proverbs 11:25)

"I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint." (Jeremiah 31:25)

"Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord," (Acts 3:19)

Wednesday blessings!
