When you have a vision and talk about it, it has the potential to come alive.
Lisa Palieri Perna of Touched by Prayer saw that happen last week.
Lisa had envisioned a gathering of a group of women, many of them encountering God in an intimate way for the first time. She prayed over it. She spoke to other women about it. She asked for God’s help and for a team to support the vision.
And it happened, on March 17, 2017, just like that.
It was an honor to be there, to watch the women experiencing God’s love and receiving inner healing, finding freedom.
So many women, coming together, just to love. Maturity, wisdom, generosity, kindness. And with none of the games that often go along with gatherings of women.
No competition. No cattiness. No cliques.
When you encounter love like that, Holy Spirit love carried to a certain depth, there is an indescribable peace that fills the room, the interactions, the atmosphere. A peace that says, “You are accepted. You are safe here. You are free here.”
It makes sense. Perfect love casts out fear. It brings peace.
The relief that comes along with that kind of peace, it’s also indescribable, I think because we encounter it so rarely in most group settings. It’s something I pray we will see more and more in our lives. It’s a kind of permission to be ourselves. It’s something we are all longing for.
Many thanks to Lisa an to all the women who came to serve. I’m so blessed and encouraged and inspired.
A vision realized is a beautiful thing.
