SLW Testimony: Freedom & Rest in God
“Here’s my brief update on my life changing experience in the recent Bethel Single Life Workshop.
What took place cannot be measured by words or deeds, but by the depth of only what the Holy Spirit can do. The result is not that I am a better communicator with the opposite sex or able to leap a building in a single bound like Superman…what it gave me was FREEDOM. Freedom to be truthful in the purpose of love. Starting with my relationship with God and the ability of the Holy Spirit to search my heart like David in the Bible cried out for. Nailing false negatives to the CROSS and released from the muddy circumstances life has thrown at me. Working with those in my group proved indispensable, and a chance to speak the truth in love at the same time experienced profound healing and restoration.
Even now as I feel led to write this I sit down with no idea what to pen other than the Lord telling me to start. With this freedom I find no need to perform, prove my worth, or ability. That was not the goal of this seminar but it did deal with motivators of shame and fear as bad actors in my life. In this social media life of ME-isms it does not offer what I received in my small group of heart felt listening and prayer. All to say I find myself in a blessed season of resting in God…dating or the pursuit of relationship will come in time but I am basking in the Beauty of Jesus’ faithfulness towards me. I must be truthful now, and there is no turning back. The tools we have been given thru this Single Life Workshop are new to me, and I am actually looking forward to growing in it and navigating life past, present, and future all at the same time for He is our great Healer, King, and Friend. May my journey bear the fruits of bringing freedom to others in the vulnerability and mercy to others.” – SLW Participant
