Sometimes...

...Sometimes... our eyes need to be washed by our tears once in a while, so that we can see life with a clearer view again....

The destroyer is out to deceive, distract and discourage you... spiritual warfare is real. Arm yourself with God's truth.

Staff Retreat - 2012

        The North Woods is one of the few places on earth that i believe grows more beautiful with age...  First time ever that I set foot on the property back in 1998, I knew that I would be coming back... although allot has changed since then ( I believe for the better), it will continually be a place that hold special memories and times of learning for me. Not really allot of words that I can use to describe my feelings... what can I say, it's the North Woods.  ;)
        This Past week was one of learning for me in a big way. God continually was bringing back the truth to Let go and let God. Otto Koning was our featured speaker for this year, he  brought many confirming testimonies of trusting God and learning to walk in faith in the jungles of Papau New Guinea. reminded me of similar stories that my grandparents would tell after they came back from serving in Africa. Also something that caught my attention was the fact of how real the spirit realm is. I believe God has been showing me some interesting things on the topic of spiritual warfare...
        Over all, the emphasis for me this past week was... trust, have faith and pray like you believe it. Way easier said then done. Among other things, life is made up of relationships, first with God then, with others... I was encouraged to be able to get alone with God and seek His face... who knows how much longer we will have the freedom to do that.
