Psalm 23:1-2 NIV
The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He REFRESHes my soul.
To me this is one of the most beautiful passages in scripture. Even as I read it I find myself at the beginning of the path to refreshment. The words cause my heart to steady its beat, my mind to stop racing quite so much, and I realize I take in a deep breath and let out a slow exhale. There is nothing that compares to His green pastures and His quiet waters.
There are many things in this life that refresh us. He wired us to appreciate the beauty of His creation. He designed us to find enjoyment in relationship with others. He created humor; He created laughter. He created and modeled rest, “…for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.” (Exodus 23:12b)
REFRESH is a Mission Point women’s event on Sunday, May 4th at 7pm at Lakeland Christian Academy open to any woman, from high school seniors to senior citizens. The purpose of the event is to meet each of us wherever we are and provide some refreshing! Some of us have been experiencing seasons of great joy, fulfillment and hope. We are about bursting at the seams from being refreshed in so many tangible ways in recent weeks and months! Praise God! At the same time, some of us have been experiencing seasons of disappointment, loss, burn out and discouragement. We are thirsty for a reprieve.
Our evening will be a mixture of light-hearted stories, time allotted to getting to know one another, testimonies of how God is at work in difficult circumstances, and practical ways we can pursue refreshment spiritually, physically, and emotionally. We invite you to invite a friend and come enjoy an evening set apart from your everyday experience.
For some of you, we anticipate refreshment will come through tears. For others, through laughter. And still others, in the form of a tasty treat! But our prayer and desire is that in our time together we would each remember afresh how HE is the One who REFRESHes our souls.
There is no RSVP needed. There is no cost. We simply invite you to come and BE. Won’t you join us?
