Some testimonies from May 2020 Retreatants …
- healing my brokenness –
A Day Alone With The Lord has created a space for me to encounter God and saturate myself in His love and grace… One of the sessions helped me to be more self-aware; I reflected and confessed sins that are not exalting to God, such as anger, fear, insecurities. Through one of the meditations, I knew God is healing my brokenness as I felt a warmth sensation over my heart.
- put on the belt of truth –
This retreat helped me to be confident in God’s forgiveness and to put on the belt of truth, instead of listening to the Accuser. I am looking forward to the next Day Alone, and would strongly recommend Day Alone with the Lord for anyone who wants to experience and know God more intimately. Better is one day in His courts than a thousand elsewhere.
- be patient for direction –
From the meditation on Jesus with his disciples on the boat in the storm, I felt honoured to be God’s vessel (being the boat Jesus was in). I realized how I desire to be God’s vessel because it is an honour and it’s meaningful. I have been a little too self-focused of late. As I am in transition now, I sensed the Lord telling me to be patient for Direction, more helpful to examine motive & objective when thinking of transition.
- a renewed sense for outreach –
Thanks very much for inviting me to this retreat. I have not felt so refreshed in a long time. I have lost spiritual companionship for a long time. When I read Session 1, I just wept on my pillow. And I seldom cry…If Alpha Course is ON this year…I would like to help.
- deeply touched & impacted –
I discovered that there is a lack of gratitude and thanksgiving in my heart; and I have a heart of stone, but as I walked through the different stages of the retreat recommended, I saw God’s love, His forgiveness and His guidance, I was deeply touched. It was a day that impacted me deeply spiritually. I strongly recommend everybody to set aside a day and cherish the day spent before God.
