The initial 24 hours were challenging,
lack of external noise forced Bill to battle the internal noise of negative self-talk where evil was subtly yet relentlessly hunting. Then things started to take a turn,
going into the second day he started to hear from God and allow the Holy Spirit to work within him. The daily times of communion in silence & stillness were powerful. Over the next few days, Bill was able to share what God had been revealing with his spiritual director and receive guidance on where to go in the Scriptures and in prayer. Having the time to truly contemplate specific passages of Scripture and seek to be at one with God in his thoughts was transformational.
“Through the Silent Retreat and the Battle for the Heart process I have received complete healing in an area of my life that has caused me pain for over 30 years.”
Bill found his experience at the Silent Retreat so fruitful that he is coming back for more! In October, Bill will drive 12 hours from Pennsylvania to Nashville to attend his 2nd Wellspring Silent Retreat.
