Sculpting Your Day Away

By Brenda Jank

Consider these elements when planning a personal retreat.

1. Deceleration
Catch your breath.
Enjoy the activities you find relaxing and fun…hiking, reading, napping, cross-stitch…the sky is the limit!

2. Preparation
Journal. Write a letter to God – pour out your heart. Take a walk.
Ask yourself, “How am I doing – really?” Invite God into your inner chamber and these hours of rest.

3. Adoration
Recognize God for who He is. Worship unashamed and with an undistracted heart. 
Don’t shy away from singing or humming. Read Psalm 100 out loud.

4. Meditation
Read through a short book from the Old or New Testament.
Take the time to write out the verses, phrases, or words that speak to your heart. Use 2 colors of pens and use these words as a launching pad for prayer.

5. Supplication
Lift up and lay down each burden.
Reflect on the promises of God. 

6. Celebration
Savor this day away. Enjoy every single thing that refreshes and energizes you – guilt-free.

    • Ohhhh – that can happen.
      We need a place.
      But we also need an interior space and a pace that allows us to lean in.
      To let go and let God.

      Love and prayers!
