Have You Seen? {April 25th, 2021}

Last Week’s Theme: Seasons

It’s Retreat Week, Ladies! (Here’s our lineup) by Velvet Ashes Team—”He knows what you need. He is going to provide. Whatever you leave undone, whatever does or does not happen before you leave, it’s all in his hands. He’s got it all. He’s got you.”

Things I Wonder About {Book Club} by Rachel Kahindi—”One thing I love about living cross-culturally is that I encounter different beliefs and ways of doing things than what I grew up with. It makes me wonder two things. First, where did that come from or why do they do it that way? And second, where did my belief come from or why do I do it another way?”

Hear From Women in the Community as they Get Ready to Retreat by Velvet Ashes Team—”We love knowing that there are women retreating all over the world⁠—getting away to a hotel or the quiet of their backyard, sharing in sweet conversation with friends or teammates in a living room or on Zoom.”

Do You Know What I’m Longing For? by Danielle Wheeler—”Here is what we discover at this table year after year: the seasons of our souls change. They change drastically at times. When we show up to be with God, to spend time with him both in solitude and in this community, he shows up to be with us.”

Isaiah 43:19 (NLT) For I am about to do something new. See I have already begun!

Isn’t it beautiful the way God tenderly renews our hearts, bringing fresh insight and uncovering the layers He wants to refine?

Is He awakening a new dream in you? Or recreating you as He makes you more like Him?

If God did a mighty work in your heart during the Velvet Ashes Online Retreat, please tell us about it! You can share on social media or email us directly. We want to celebrate that with you.

We are delighting this week in creativity, renewal and beauty in the seasons of joy and the seasons of wilderness.
