This past weekend, I attended my church’s annual women’s retreat, and, (wo)man, was it an awesome, transformative experience. With the theme of “Brave: Empowered to Produce,” I truly do feel like I confronted some fears head on and left better equipped to endure this current season. It requires complete trust in God and total surrender of my plans for His will, even more so than I have in the past. This quote accurately encapsulates what I’m feeling at the moment. I may not have it all figured out, but I look forward to looking back at this post as a benchmark reminder of how much I’ve grown.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
