9.13.2021 – “Retreat”

This morning, I was reminded of a phrase. I kept hearing: “do not retreat“ And so I asked the Lord about it… What did He want to show me about this phrase—about the word “retreat“?

Sitting at my dining room table this morning, I slid my open bible a little closer so that I could touch the pages… As I reflected on how precious this book is to me, I was reminded of a memory.
