“I catch all your tears
Burn your name on my heart
Be still and trust my plan
Let me open your eyes to see the heart of me, differently
Come closer than you’ve ever been
Let me in like never before
Bring me every broken part
The wounds and scars of who you are
And hide in me and you will see
I’m more than you think I am”
A time away from everything, it allows your mind to be freed. Free from self-judgement and self-criticism. I guess that is the beauty of retreats. Taking time aside for things that you usually do and just be still.
To open our hearts to God once again
To look beyond the exterior but within
For change happens only when we look within ourselves
Transformation happens when we have courage to look within and it translates outwardly
Something I learnt during my retreat. To always take time for God- every single day. There’s no doubt we need Him and He patiently awaits us in adoration.
Our God is so loving and gentle that He doesn’t forces us to go beyond what we can’t. That’s freewill. But ‘our hearts are restless until they rest in you‘- Saint Augustine.
So Lord Jesus, help us to believe in you when we fail to recognize your presence daily and our needs before you. Teach us to be humble and obedient to your word, In Jesus name, Amen.
