Come , everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; Isaiah 55:1
And, oh, were these ladies “thirsty”! Thirsty for His Truth, His Love, His Touch… They came “thirsty” ~ they left “filled”! They came with a “hunger” in their souls ~ they left satisfied! They came wanting more of God in their lives and they did not leave disappointed!
They had a wonderfully, annointed Bible teacher who guided them into a deeper walk with the Lord. Award winning author and speaker, Cathy Lee Phillips took each of them by the hand and lead them to the feet of Jesus. None of them will ever be the same again!
This is what Fellowship Valley is all about: To be a place of serenity; a quiet place to get away with the Father; a place without “distractions”; a place where you can hear His “still, small voice”; a place where you “seek Him” and you “find Him”… A place of Discipleship where Jesus is Lord and you always leave here a better person than when you came.
What an honor it was to be a witness to the “transforming of lives” that was experienced this weekend with these precious Sisters in Christ! They “came to the water” with their heavy burdens and cares and cast them into the “sea of forgetfulness”. They took on His yoke, (Matt. 11:29-30) which is easy and light and left full of His Love and Joy ~ ready to share it with all who would have need. What a Glorious Honor! What a Glorious privilege to be called His Daughter!
Thank you, ladies, for gracing us with you presence ~ while seeking His Grace and His Presence!
