  MY WEEKEND RETREAT WITH THE LORD 
 
 A TRUE STORY That happened in May 1977 and is written down on March 24, 2012, in my 80th year.

  By Frank Henrich

It was Friday afternoon and having completed my business for the day, I was driving to attend a three-day Full Gospel Christian Businessmen’s Retreat held in a resort out in the country. I was droving thru some beautiful rural countryside, and there were few cars on the road. Alone in the car and feeling an anticipation of a special time, I played a cassette of Christian praise music and soon was singing without care of troubling anyone with my awful singing voice. My wife tells me, "When singing in church, I should lower my voice to a whisper so she would not be embarrassed." But there, I was singing with no restraint.

When suddenly, without any warning, I had a knowing that God wanted me to be quiet, listen and wait. I did so immediately, turning off the music. It was not that I was to stop the car, but just be silent. You ask, “Did I hear a voice?” No, but it had the effect on me as if I had heard someone suddenly say in a loud voice stop your singing, quiet your mind and wait. So I drove on in great expectation of what would happen next.

As I continued to look out the car window as one does when driving a car, there appeared in my vision a full-sized man, standing to my left, across the two-lane highway, where he hovered just above the farmland nearby at a height level with my car. He was perhaps 70 feet from my car and slightly to the left from my front vision. What was strange about this image was it did not scare me as I looked in wonder while continuing to drive. The man was like an image projected on the passing landscape as in a movie, for he stayed in the same position of my vision as the car continued to move down the road even though the landscape changed. He was physically very healthy and young in appearance. It was no one I had ever met.

As I viewed the man, a silent thought came to me, "If you covet, desiring his handsome appearance to replace your appearance, or his superintelligence to be yours, or his rich family to be your family, or his personality to replace yours, or whatever it is you want in your life and person changed to, you are coveting which is a sin against God’s commandments. Then another silent statement filled me, “If you covet him, you will have to take all of him, and there are parts of his life you are not aware of and you would not want. Things hidden from you but very unwanted. Then came the silent question, “Do you still want to covet him?

Then the silent voice went silent. Suddenly I felt I was to answer! The impact of the words drew me into deep thought. I admitted to myself, yes, I had been coveting parts of humans, not realizing I would have to take all of them. Would I want to leave my life for their unknown life? In my coveting, I had crossed the line from respecting them to coveting them for their uniqueness. I had been daydreaming that this desirable feature about them would be placed on or in my body; that I would become like them. The silence continued as if it was giving me time to think. It may have been minutes or seconds, I’m sure I do not know. But I do know that my mental processes rapidly prepared an answer which was "Lord, forgive me for coveting others. I want to stay myself. Use me to serve you, just as I am."

During the half hour left before I arrived at the retreat, I did not want to disturb the quiet, for there maybe more. So in silence, I drove on.

But that was not the only special thing to happen to me that weekend. At the Saturday afternoon praise-and-prayer meeting, the guest speaker, after his address, announced an altar call for anyone to come forward for prayer. I thought, I would go up and ask for strength in my walk. The speaker went down the altar rail talking to each man and when he came to me I was blessed in such a unique way, I cannot even speak of it. I will say it was so unexpected, and I felt so unworthy.

After the event was over, I found the speaker alone and asked him for advice. He told me that I must guard against spiritual pride. I was susceptible to having some persons push my pride button when they wanted to manipulate me, and knowing this I must guard against the effects of self-pride in the natural world. But here he was speaking of spiritual pride. I knew nothing about spiritual pride. He went on to tell me that spiritual pride, is where you take credit for the work of God done through you. Ever since, I have been careful of this potential weakness in my spiritual life and often see it in my fellow Christians, for I have seen it destroy ministries. Always pass on all praise to God who is the right One to praise.

From the time I arrived at the retreat, I became aware of a special feeling of joyful euphoria. I now know it was an anointing of grace that filled me so that all I did was without worry, while being filled with such joy. Could it be Heaven is like this? Well, I knew one thing; I did not want the retreat to end. But alas, Sunday afternoon arrived and it was time to leave. A friend of mine asked me if he could ride back with me and so we left the campground in my car. It was as the car started to enter the on ramp entrance to the highway, that I became aware that this wonderful feeling of eurphoria was leaving me. The world, my world was again filling my mind with its concerns and worries. Because my friend would not understand, I could not verbally say aloud, No God, No God, but inwardly I did as this special anointing grace was slowing leaving my body. I could feel its ebbing. I again silently said, "No Lord, No Lord!" It was then I had a silent thought come to me that said."Out in the world you cannot survive with so much grace.” The special grace had passed back to the normal wonderful grace that God gives us constantly each day.

The retreat was over, but the tools of my new ministry remained within me. Praise God He has allowed me to use them all these 35 years. I hope there will be more years. I felt led to pen these wonderful memories for the website God has given me to manage. Perhaps this message is needed for someone, somewhere in the world. Could that person be you?

In review this is what I learned:

1. God will come visiting whenever He chooses, be prepared to receive Him.

2. When we seek to follow Him and ask Him to show us our unknown errors. Be prepared to be shown.

3. God does not wait for us to perfect our life before he calls us to servanthood for Him.

4. We learn of the wondrous powers of God’s grace and thru His grace, we are protected while we do His work. Grace is our shield of protection which holds at bay our old nature, which desires to sin, and protects us from the works of Satan. With this grace, we have peace and are emboldened to do God’s ministry. Praise God for his loving grace.

Go now and serve our wonderful Creator God!   Frank Henrich

THE TWO ASPECTS OF COVETNESS – GOOD AND BAD

It is important to understand that there is two aspects to the act of coveting. The first aspect calls us to covet God by living a life like Jesus. The book the Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis and the Holy Scriptures are full of references encouraging us to be change our old nature into a life pleasing to God.

Then there is the second aspect of coveting that is very evil. It is the actual or wish full stealing of another’s marriage mate, property or the wishful desires to possess the good features of another that will lead one into other sins of jealousy, lust, and anger. Let your mind be clear there are these two aspects to the act of coveting.
