I’m going to share with you what really happened on my Retreat with God. My life will never be the same after the last few weeks because of the healing that took place.
The first day of my Retreat with God I was heartbroken. Why? I had not been taking care of myself. God knew that and He wanted me to get away with Him for awhile to heal my heart, feelings and emotions. He also knew I needed to retreat from what I was doing with my life.
This Retreat began with God saying to me, ‘LISTEN MORE.” Sounds like God, doesn’t it? He always wants us to listen more to Him. As I did, God showed me His perspective of me that brought forth a healing I had needed for decades. He was helping me to REFOCUS on what He wanted me to focus on in the first place: The Truth of Who He is and Who I am.
The second week of my Retreat with God was about learning how to take care of myself. In other words love, accept and value myself just like God. How did that happen? God gave me a New Story. For years, I have been listening to an unhealthy story on the inside of me that was not helping me at all, especially in my relationships. I understood for me to have healthy relationships with others, I first had to have a healthy relationship with myself. So God’s New Story for me changed all of that.
I’m sure you have heard the way you view yourself is the way you view others. So I needed to change the way I viewed myself so I could view others in a healthy way. But it first started with me having a healthy view of God, myself and then for others. God healed my feelings and emotions in this process and I am so looking forward to having healthier relationships.
The third week of my Retreat with God was about understanding others. God wanted me to “get out of my head” and connect with my heart. He wanted me to focus on other’s hearts, but I could not do that if I was stuck in my head. He was showing me its in a person’s heart is where they believe and feel. Instead of me having “mental conversations” with others, He wanted me to listen to their hearts in order to connect with them.
It really started one night when the Lord spoke to me about having a “heart-to-heart connection” with Him. It always begins with God doesn’t it? He created relationships in the first place. The best way to have a healthy relationship is to have a heart to heart one. Otherwise is just superficial and who wants a superficial relationship? I don’t anymore.
God also wanted me to understand WHY someone feels the way they feel and WHY they believe what they believe. This is such a Huge Revelation. Imagine if we all connected with one another heart to heart and actually understood why we feel what we feel and why we believe what we believe. How would that change our relationships? Well I am about to find out really soon.
For the past few weeks I have had very little contact with people that I know. God wanted to heal my heart so I can have healthy relationships from now on. At first I thought this was so selfish, but the Lord showed me it was actually SELFLESS. How?
He told me when I get healthy, then I can help more people and have healthier relationships. So I am not really doing this just for me, but for OTHERS, including you. I hope that others will understand that this time with God will benefit them as well.
God also told me more about My Why In Life. Do you want to know what it is? Helping Others Discover Their Why In Life. What this means is there will be many changes to A Transforming Word in the months to come. I’ll not only be helping others hear God’s voice MORE clearly, but also helping them know their reason for living.
Plus I will be making videos for a new YouTube Channel as well as doing Facebook Live Videos. Expect to me to CONNECT with you more. But realize I am going to have a heart to heart connections from now on. All of these changes are FOR YOU. So look forward to the NEW. Remember, old things have passed away, behold ALL things are become new.
Thank you so much for your prayers. God heard you and He said, “YES!!!”
