Paul had it all, didn’t he? Education, zeal, position.
But he said that he put all that behind him, forgotten because of the all-consuming joy of pursuing Christ.
As many of us make space in our week for the Velvet Ashes retreat, the focus might feel like it shifts to us. We have time to feed our hungry souls, rest, and find refreshment. These are all worthy goals and we want them for you!
But let’s also look beyond ourselves. Let us say with Paul, “But everything that was a gain to me, I have considered to be a loss because of Christ.” (Philippians 3:7)
How is the Father stretching you, stretching your faith to look beyond what is right in front of you? Has He asked you to let go of your rights, your status, to pursue Him?
We want to be part of that together this week. If you are participating in the Velvet Ashes retreat, make sure you tag us on social media and use the hashtag #VelvetAshesRetreat! Also share what the theme of Beyond Myself is stirring in you, using the hashtag #VelvetAshesBeyondMyself.
