Turn His Radio On!

    In this world today we are busier than we ever thought we would be – for the age we are – young or old. The Bible says in Isaiah 23.6 “Thou wilt keep him (her) in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee.” We read this, we know it. However sometimes we forget to “Turn Our Radio On” and listen to what God is saying to us.
     In the midst of cleaning the kitty litter box, getting dinner on the table, fixing lunches, paying bills, and yes, of course, if it applies – date night with your husband…..who has time to listen to God? The weird part of that is that I can be a couch potato, flipping through TV channels, bored to death, lots of spare time on my hands…and still not spending any quality time listening to God. And one more thing – are we really listening to the calls of need in our family and friends? Are we listening?
   Let’s all put on ‘listening ears’ as we come to retreat open to learn through real life stories, laughter and lessons – how to quench our thirst and satisfy our longings to listen more faithfully to what God is saying to us, personally and as His church…we might just leave there getting “hearing aids for our hearts”!
Isaiah 55.2   (NIV)   Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare.

Motivational Speakers

Our Guest presenter will be Lois Olmstead. Lois shares how to live with joy and courage. Inspiring others is something that has become part of her everyday life.
