For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.  Ephesians 2:10

Hello Altered Stories Family,

We are entering Summertime.  For many this is a time of family, fun, and enjoying time out of school, at least for the kids. However, the Lord has been impressing on me that this is also a time of refreshing.  You see, for many this is a time to take a break and go on a vacation. Trust me, everyone needs a get away time, to rest, recoup and be refreshed by the Lord. 

Last weekend, my husband and I went to a revival, and funny enough it was located at Mike’s old church location, a place that neither of us have stepped foot in over 14 years.  To say it was surreal was an understatement. The message that was given was like words that God had given us during the week, and exactly what we needed to hear. 

As Mike and I are looking to take a vacation, we are looking to be restored, and refreshed by the Lord as He said He would do in His word. This idea is not new, even Yeshua Jesus, would often take His disciples to a quiet place where they could pray, and recharge.

So, what about you? Are you running? Are you running so hard that you are nearly burnt out?

Pray and ask God for some time to recharge. We all need it, and God will answer that prayer.  He does say “ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open to you.

I hope you find some encouragement and you take time this Summer, whether it be a small vacation or an afternoon to get with God, and recharge your battery.

God bless,
