It's "go" time. Come deeper...

Every time I try to blog lately I get a few sentences out and then my brain freezes up. It’s not due to a lack of things to say or a fear of writing them, it’s that there’s too much I want to say that I can’t focus on a single thing well enough to write coherently on it. That and I don’t have enough time to proof-read right now and so there may be some uncertainty about what I just wrote making any sense at all. Kind of like what I am doing right now.

I will pick one thing to write on tonight, though. It’s burning on my heart.

So I am sitting at a coffee shop right now. For the second time today. Somebody pinch me…this just DOESN’T happen in our season of life right now.

My gracious hubby pushed me out the door while he takes care of our sewer water issues, prepares our house for our appraisal and oh yeah, takes care of our kiddos.

Why would he do such a crazy thing?

Because it is “go” time.

We are less than two weeks out from our 3rd Deeper still retreat (you can read more about it in a previous post, a little bit more in depth). Deeper Still is a retreat for those who have been wounded by the pain of abortion. Those men and women who are aching for healing and freedom. It’s for any level of healing- from those who haven’t told anyone, ever, that they’ve had an abortion to those who have done extensive work in their healing journey. God will take you deeper, no matter where you’re at. He just does.

Along with abortion comes shame, bitterness, unforgiveness, fear, anxiety, depression, sadness, loneliness, regret, guilt, remorse, and many other things.

If this is you- we WANT you there. You will be welcomed with joy, un-judged, loved, safe and will have the opportunity to meet face to face with your Savior and see how dearly and lavishly He loves you. Yes, YOU.

Our loving God wants to FREE men and women from these chains that they carry with them.You can trust Him.

I don’t personally know the pain of abortion but OH, do I know the pain of carrying chains everywhere I go. And, oh, do I know shame, bitterness, unforgiveness, fear, anxiety, depression, sadness, loneliness, regret, guilt, remorse. And by His incredible grace and love, He is washing me daily on this journey to freedom in Him. Y’all, I’m on my own freedom journey, too.

The dates are April 10-12.

There’s no better time.
