Me And God – Without Her
This is the time of year I leave my wife for a few days so I can focus on God. This will be my fourth fall retreat with Boot Camp Northwest.
I love my life, and my friends, and my life in general. But life has a way of distracting me, and I tend to lose track of what’s really important. I tend to drift from God at times, even as I actively seek and serve Him. For me a couple of days in the middle of nowhere (cell service drops off about an hour before you reach Washington Family Ranch) isn’t a fun vacation, it’s a spiritual necessity.
Beyond that, my time away is good for my marriage. I always come back energised, which allows me to be more loving and giving. And, more often than not, God lovingly corrects someplace where I’m not being the husband I should be.
When did you last get away with God? Do you need to do it again? Does your marriage need you to do it?
