From Anxiety to Freedom | Olivia's Story

It’s been a few weeks since I got back from the Delight Retreat and I still think about it every
day. It was one of the best experiences of my life, and I almost didn’t go. Not because I didn’t
think it would be fun, in fact, I thought it would be the trip of a lifetime. But, I struggle with an
anxiety disorder and the thought of flying across the country to spend the weekend with girls
I’d never met before was terrifying.

How to Worship - The 4 Levels of Worship

To live in a spirit of worship is to live in a spirit of surrender. It’s when you live wholeheartedly in obedience to the Lord. When we worship God in everything we do, it shows that we desire to draw closer to Him. It’s taking a background position and letting God have center stage.

What is worship?

I was driving down the road a couple of weeks ago listening to podcasts, and I heard this phrase:  you become what you worship.

I felt the words sink deep into my chest, thick with conviction. I understood it before he even continued on. What was I spending the most time thinking about? What choices was I making every day that were cutting God out of my life? And when I panicked, who was I turning to first?

Our Spring 2018 Retreat | Leavenworth, Washington

To try to encapsulate this year’s Delight and Be retreat is going to be a challenge, so bear with me. Being a first-timer, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I knew God was going to be at work there. I just wasn’t prepared for how much He would be at work and how He would do it. All of us girls got there on Thursday evening, warmly greeted by everyone, skipping the handshake and going straight to hugs.

4 Ways to choose your words wisely.

I think we’ve gotten careless, friend. I mean, we just talk and talk and talk. We send memes and gifs with others’ words because they seem relevant, they make fun of life, and we value the ability to be funny in a sarcastic way. If you listen to how those around you speak, you’ll start to hear things that come up a lot, and these things reveal so much about what’s going on underneath all of the humor, the comment crafting, the culture we wear like a second skin.

How doing this ONE thing everyday can drastically change your life.

This is a really tough topic. We think we can see the choices in front of us, but if you really start to analyze a day in your life and take a moment to think about all that you do, you’ll see that you make choices all of the time without thinking.

A lot the choices that we make without thinking are the choices that come from the reality we live in and the mindset we have. It’s a very tenative, fragile thing. Everyone has a different worldview, a different mindset, a different reality.
