Finding Peace Through Surrender to God
“Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, ‘Father, save me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour” (John 12:27, NASB).
We need direction. Day by day, hour-by-hour, for us to live our best lives according to the unique purpose that God has called us to, we need the word of the Lord guiding us. Surrender is what brings the peace that surpasses all understanding (Phil 4:7)…no matter our circumstances.
How do we surrender to God? Rather than following our own inclinations, we follow the will of God. Evidence of a surrendered life is obedience to God.

I would like to tell you about an opportunity for women called, Renew: online retreat.
Renew is an online, self-paced, retreat experience. This will be a place to pause, allowing your spirit to be refreshed as you soak in the goodness of who God is. This will be a time to make space for the work of the Holy Spirit to renew a right spirit within your soul. This retreat is a quiet celebration of some beautiful gifts given to us by our Creator- gifts that renew our bodies, minds, and spirits.
This retreat will offer daily themes that repeat over four weeks: inspire, rejuvenate, create, connect, and Sabbath. A private class website, videos, and printable/downloadable files are the ways you will be able to access this content. Projects, recipes, essays, devotionals, and prayers will be woven throughout and offered in a way that invites a restful pick and choose approach.
This class begins on September 11th, 2017. Registration will remain open until September 18th. It’s a self-paced course (so you will not miss any content if you join after the start date).
