It finally happened here in Western North Carolina! We have cold weather and winter is feeling strong and blustery in the Old Building. Lots going on to get the facility prepped for next year and the 2016 programs! We could use some help if you or your group are looking for a retreat with a little work involved. Hit us up here at the office and lets get together. Lots to do..
Mid October and we are almost 50% booked for the 2016 Summer Experiences!! One week is closed already so if you are thinking of a date please let us know as soon as possible!!!
John 14:1 Do not let your heart be troubled. Trust God; trust also in me.
I have learned that my heart being troubled, which means worried, anxious, stressed out, is usually a trust issue. Basically it comes down to this, I trust the thing troubling my heart more than I trust God/Jesus. To trust means that I rely on the integrity, strength, the ability and surety of a person, in this case God and Jesus. When I put it like that it’s kind of silly right? How could I NOT rely on the integrity of God, He’s never lied to me or led me astray, or abandoned me. However many of us do that very thing, like Peter we look at the waves around and begin to sink into the waves/trouble, we need to look at Jesus, and remember that it is in His strength, His ability that we can overcome every trouble. Sometimes Jesus calms the storm, and sometimes He calms the person in the storm. God Bless you.
The rain has finally eased off here and we are thankful! The French Broad River and many of our streams and creeks were right at flood stage. Waterfalls were flowing and beautiful but it all had a dangerous feel to it. Prayers for our friends in South Carolina and to the Ministry taking place down at Trenholm Road UMC we send our prayers and thoughts. They are passing out water and helping their neighbors in need who have flood issues and damage!
