It is my pleasure to introduce to you my Aunt Judy, though I wish you could meet her in person, for words could never express the impact she has made in my life. She is “a creative” with the heart of a servant and often works in the background for Restore Ministries working on projects, praying for us, searching for retreat items, and helping me write lyrics for songs I have composed including “Restore, My Soul” our retreat theme song. She is a cancer survivor, greatly loves the Lord, and has a gift for expressing her thoughts through writing.
It is with great joy that we welcome Judy Ingle to be our guest blogger for the Monday Musings post today. Be Blessed, Sherry
Beneath the Snow
I found a spiritual lesson buried beneath the snowy drifts. I imagined I buried all the frivolous things that try to define my life; the empty activities, the business and the numerous things that simply have no merit. Underneath the frozen blanket of snow, I, for a moment, buried these things along with my doubts, my self-pity and the broken pieces of my life. I was very much aware that once the sun would rise and the snow melted those burdensome feelings would once again resurface. However, God in his mercy reminded me that the “Son” has risen and covered all my sins and blunders. The Son can melt any heart that’s grown cold and can dissolve the “slush” that often confuses our thoughts; all the while calming the snow squalls that restrict our vision.
There is still a space for you at the April retreat. Perhaps God is tugging at your heart to break away and spend quality, intimate, meaningful time with Him. Won't you respond to His calling today. Kathy and I pray that every space is God directed! It always amazes us to see how He uniquely sends those whom he seeks out to join us. We are humbled by His faithfulness to use these often broken and emptied vessels of ourselves for His Kingdom purposes. He desires to restore the emptiness and weariness of your soul. Come join us. Be restored!
