Reactions to Refocus and Refuel
The Refocus and Refuel retreat is a wonderful experience of community and communion with the LORD. I have always leave on Sunday wanting more time with the LORD and the community created, but I leave filled with hope, God's Presence, and knowing more deeply I am loved. There's no way to express how valuable this time away in silence is. It is really a transformative experience.
I remember on my first Refocus and Refuel Retreat when we went into silence I was surprised at how noisy it still seemed to be…it was my racing mind. I didn’t realize how much I desperately needed this time to just lay day everything else, all the interruptions of day to day life, and just draw near to God and truly put Him first. No matter what state I’m in when I arrive at these retreats, whether mountain top or dessert moments, God meets me there as I quiet my mind and have extended uninterrupted time with my LORD. When I let go of all expectations and just abide in HIM he always shows up and sometimes in the least expected ways. It’s a wonderful time to REST in HIM….and sometime for me that means a good nap. These retreats are the perfect balance of good Bible-based teaching, extended quiet time with God, and laughter over meals. The Refocus and Refuel Retreats are priceless! Thank you, Linda.
"I have continued to attend the Refocus and Refuel retreats as they are one of the most valuable ways that I can spend my time throughout the year! I am reminded that while we often prioritize so many other things in our lives, focused and uninterrupted time with God and getting quiet to hear what He has to say is often pushed to the bottom of our priority list! These weekends are a gift to allow us to be intentional about prioritizing this most valuable time. God never fails to meet us as we choose to "sow" time with Him: "...for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap" (Galatians 6:7). It is well worth it!!
My first Psalm One event was a Day of Refreshing. I really enjoyed the teaching and tools that Linda Kline offered to help us stay connected to the true source of life, Jesus. The time at Jesus’ feet was a new experience for me, but I completely loved it! One day is not enough once you taste of His goodness, so I decided to sign up for the Refocus and Refuel retreat and the experience was divine. He guided me exactly to what I needed. From the places I rested in, to the Scriptures, to His creation, He was in control. My advice if you are in doubt is to taste of it and see how good it is for your soul. The experience does not end when the weekend gets to an end. The work He starts on the weekend will change you forever. Your focus on life will change and you will feel a new boost to keep searching for more of Him. Your time and your money could not be invested in a better gift than His presence!
