 Join Charlotte, Ginger and so many others as they share their hearts and Love for God at Spiritual Sundays
I just woke up after having a much needed nap.  The past 4 days I have been working on a women's retreat.  We plan the retreat for several weeks and the "team" serve and minister to about 25-30 other women.  It is a wonder weekend of teaching and prayer but, a stressful experience.  

I think today I want to pass on one of the most important things I found myself sharing with other team members throughout the stress of the weekend.

WHEN you are ministering to others
     Satan WILL be mad.

When, not IF, you find yourself in conflict with others
    Satan WILL be rejoicing, he loves to stir up discord


Even those "seasoned" Christians are only sinners saved by grace
We are all just a work in progress.

In 1 Thessalonians 5:7 we are told to "pray without ceasing". 
When you find yourself in those stressful moments
and your just not sure what to do,
In every moment of every day
in every situation
keep an attitude of prayer with your mind completely on God 
and not the things going on around you. 

Have a wonderful week. Debbie

Wise words, dear one. I pray that Satan be cast out in the midst of your planning for the retreat and that all the ladies will be blessed.

I love that photo at the top of your blog. It makes me want to sit on that dock. And what you wrote....really spoke to me. All the pictures of praying hands....emphasized it even more.
