This past Spring, for the first time in years I took part in a Women’s Retreat~ a most welcome thoughtful time, and a weekend to make some welcome acquaintance with a few more women. (After a decade in New Hampshire, my circle of friends remains sparsely occupied.)
One concentrated study time was on verses 21 through 31 of Isaiah 40 . Seeking the Lord’s illumination into some change He might be asking of me as a consequence of my having listened to Him, prompted by the Retreat teacher, my heart responded to verse 31.
Just today, months after the end of the Retreat, my eye fell anew on my notes on confirming practices~~ and moved my heart to note those reflections down here.
As the Lord is Sovereign, live every day in His Sovereignty ~
Honor with patience the season of life I am now in, while praying for wholeness
~Wait in prayer, work in prayer, rest in prayer, love in prayer, trust God in prayer, serve in prayer
