Cross Filled with Light in the Chapel

Chapel in the prayer garden at the Light of the World Women's Retreat

This beautiful, serene Chapel is in the Prayer Garden at the camp in Trinity where our women’s retreat was held this past weekend. The stained glass cross embedded in the stone wall has a light in the back keeping it lit.

Last weekend I attended a Women’s Retreat with the ladies from the church where I am a member (North Woodlands Church of Christ at Buckshot Lane). Our theme this year was Light of the World. It was a refreshing, Spirit-filled weekend that I will not soon forget. The connections you make with God, and with the ladies who attend, are amazing and life changing. If you get a chance to attend one, open your heart to it. You will be very pleasantly surprised.

John 1:1-9  In verse 4 it says “In him (God) was life; and the life was the light of men.” In this verse, the ‘life’ talked about is Jesus Christ. These verses go on to tell about how John came to bear witness of that Light. In verse 7 the letter L in the word light is capitalized. The most powerful verse is verse 9. This verse reads, ” That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.”

What is so powerful about John 1:9? Recently scientists have found that when you peel away the layers of a cell of any living thing, you will find light (You can find this information HERE). Down deep in every cell of every living thing, is Jesus. Verse 9 tells us it is so. Verse 9 told us so before scientists revealed that it is so. All we have to do, is let it shine.

Will you let your light shine for Him?

  1. That is sooooo cool! I love it when Science Catches up with the Word of God! Thank You for sharing this with us. I think it will bless many and strengthen their faith!

  2. Wow, That is a very powerful verse… And then the fact about the cells is very interesting. I have never been to a retreat. To my knowledge, my church doesn’t have one, but I will have to look more into it.

  7. What beautiful pictures! So glad you had a peaceful and enjoyable weekend at the retreat. Sounds absolutely wonderful.

  8. I love that cross! What a beautiful place to have a prayer session and retreat! I think about Jesus walking on water when I see the lake. Thank you for sharing about the Light of Christ in our cells. That is an amazing find. I really enjoyed your post.

    I am not a blogger, but for me this picture is representative of how the love that was demonstrated at Calvary still lights the world today.
    16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
    17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
    18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” John 3:16-18 NIV
