Becky Eldredge shares her reflection on today’s retreat:
What have I learned about God through my relationship with Jesus?
Jesus took time to be alone in prayer to spend time with his Father. Time with his Father helped Jesus to forgive his enemies and to know what God wanted him to do. Jesus models for me how to have a relationship with God and how to root my entire life in God.
I, too, must take time alone in prayer to spend with God. Time with God in prayer allows me to learn God’s will for me, to learn to forgive, and to learn how to accept God’s will. Jesus shows me that tending my relationship with God is how I find peace.
