How To Take A Spiritual Retreat - Part Two

For part one of this series click here.

Last week I shared about a recent personal spiritual retreat that I took during a time of spiritual depletion and inner weariness. In last week's post I shared some of the symptoms of spiritual depletion. Today, in part two of this series, I'm going to share some practical tips on why you may want to take a personal spiritual retreat, how to take one and what to do on a retreat such as this. I hope you find this helpful and encouraging.

Why you may want to take a personal spiritual retreat.
As I mentioned in last week's post, this is only the second time in my sixty-two years of life that I've taken a time away by myself in order to hear from God and to be spiritually refreshed and restored. Most of the time I am able to avoid extreme spiritual depletion and weariness like what I recently experienced by building times of personal retreat into my normal life. (How to do that will be part three in this series.) I'm not sure why this time I needed more drastic measures to experience some measure of refreshing... (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, January 26th, at Woman to Woman Ministries, where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)

    1. There’s something special that happens when you purposely get out of your routine to seek God!
