“Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up.”  James 4:10

I had so many things I had always hoped for:  a great husband, nice house and an upwardly mobile career.  But I felt something missing.  There was a vacant place in my heart.

I accepted an invitation to attend a retreat sponsored by WCF.  At first I felt uncomfortable and very out of place.  I prayed, “God help me.  I’ll be open to whatever it is you want for me.  I love you.”  The next day God spoke directly to my heart.  He told me not to fear, that He had a plan and purpose for me and to trust in Him.  I was so overwhelmed by God’s Holy Spirit that I sobbed and hid my face.  I was ashamed and remorseful for all my sins that were before me, but I also felt God’s overwhelming love, presence and forgiveness.  I experienced Emmanuel God with me.

From that day on I knew God was real.  I had a hunger for Him and to study His word.  I was always fearful, but now I had God to guide me.  From that day on my life has been a journey to know God, to love Him and to serve Him.  I have become a new creation, not solely seeking what I wanted in my life, but God’s will for my life.  Through God I have been empowered to pray, forgive, to serve and most of all to love.
