What Past Participants Say about their Time at the Springs
“God is showing me that I must live intentionally for I am easily distracted by the good and urgent tasks of my life. I want to treasure each moment and not let them pass unnoticed and uncherished. “Lord, open my eyes so I can see You in these every day moments. More importantly, let me see You as You really are – “good!” Develop in me a grateful heart.” - Pam
“I came to the Springs feeling guilty because I didn’t have the funds. So our church put in money so I could go. And my thoughts were, “someone else deserves to go more than I do.” I felt like someone who had never had the opportunity should go. But Wednesday night in the conference room, my heart felt a nudge. I knew I was right where I needed to be. I so needed to take a look at the goodness God hands us and learn to be thankful for it. I pray I will take this heart of gratitude home to stay! And live fully each moment.” – Julie Ann
“He is so good! I’ll start with that! He spoke directly to my heart and soul and lifted burdens off my shoulders that I have been carrying around. I feel healing starting in my heart and attitude... I know my heart is full of His love and strength as I go back into routines of life. He has filled me with a sense of peace and joy that surpasses my understanding!” Heidi
“Even being away for 48 hours wasn’t enough for me to relax. I need to learn to rest in Him and totally surrender. I am too concerned about what people think of me. I want to receive from the Lord that my identity is that I am one who is deeply loved by God. I want to rest in that and let that be enough.” -- Anonymous
“The Lord used the Springs to help me slow down and truly know God has a plan even though I want to see the end result now and how he redeems what is wrong into something good. I know I just have to leave it there with Him. I love to have quiet time with the Lord and I realized I need more of it, especially now that I’m back in ministry after some time away from it.” – Karen
If you had to boil everything down to one main idea –
“God knows the longings of my heart!”
“God is always good. I am always loved.”
“Gratitude – being thankful so I can live fully in the moment.”
“Slow down” is my theme! I want to not be so rushed and busy that I plow through life missing all the beauty and blessings God has for me!”
“Continue to pursue relationship with Jesus. Practice meditation on the Gospels.”
“To take time and leave that rock symbolizing our burdens (or boulder as it seems some times) at the foot of the cross and separate my thoughts away from it in order to closely focus on God, more often than I do.”
“As a pastors wife I appreciate the freedom I have here to share my heart and thoughts and not have to be concerned about what others might think or how that reflects on our church.”
“My life is so blessed to be a part of this amazingly simplistic time with God….my heart is full.”
