House swap. Want a weekend or overnight retreat, but can’t afford the cost of the travel or hotel? Why not swap houses with a friend or family member (maybe they can watch your kids too!)? Then you can relax and enjoy a different setting. Make sure to bring snacks, movies or games, and candles. Then just hang out together. (But make sure you both pitch in to clean up at the end of your stay!)
Leave the darkness behind you and turn to God’s light.
This is the message he has given us to announce to you: God is light and there
is no darkness in him at all. 1 JOHN 1:5
Light represents what is good, pure, true, holy, and reliable. Darkness represents
sin and evil. To say God is light means that God is perfectly holy and true,
and that he alone can guide us out of the darkness of sin. Light is also related
to truth, in that it exposes whatever exists, whether it is good or bad. In
the dark, good and evil look alike; in the light, they can be clearly distinguished.
Just as darkness cannot exist in the presence of light, sin cannot exist in
the presence of a holy God. If we want to have a relationship with God, we must
put aside our sinful ways of living.
Growthtrac has helped me to realize that I am not alone in my circumstances; I have received Godly advice and caring fellowship. Cary from Virginia
