I went on a Ladies Retreat at Camp Caroline from March 16-18 with some of my friends and it was amazing! For the next couple weeks I’m going to share with you my notes specifically from that weekend.
The speaker for this weekend was Jolene Biegel and she was a super good speaker!
I want an appetite for the Lord.
"Now make sure you stay free, and don't get tied up again in slavery and the law."
When you are trying harder with your own flesh, you are falling farther from grace.
Lord, I need the revelation of Your love.
Don't be okay with a partial walk with the Lord.
Children aren't an expansion of us. They are God's. Ask Him what He has in mind for this child. Ask for wisdom and He will give it to you.
Do not project expectations of how He is supposed to reveal Himself to you.
If we don't believe He will come through, we start making scenarios of how He should come through.
Manipulation is when we're trying to control the outcome.
We need to trust, abide, yield, and obey Him.
If you lean into the Holy Spirit, you will produce the fruit without trying.
Love - Joy - Peace - Patience - Kindness - Goodness - Faithfulness - Gentleness - Self-Control (restraint).
We're trying to be good. But what we need is to lean into God's strength.
Don't try harder, lean into Him more.
Surrender everyday. Not just on retreats/Sundays/every once in a while.
Want more Holy Spirit? -> Need to yield more.
"Follow the Spirit's leading in every part of our lives."
Don't try harder, trust more.
