JEHR 8th to 10th November 2019

24th November, 2019
General
I attended the JEHR in November 2019.

I was a person full of anger as I had been hurt by many people, cheated, falsely implicated, etc. for which I had hatred towards them and could never forgive them.
 
The very first talk on God’s Love touched me so much which was very well explained in Lamentations 3:22-23 22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; I started questioning myself. If God’s love for me is unconditional why can’t I love others?

Fr. Joel spoke on Anger and Unforgiveness. 

He explained how anger is a slow poison; it will kill yourself & others also. 

By forgiving others we will be able to change the life of others which he explained in true life stories on St. Maria Goretie, Sister Rani Maria & Pope John Paul.  All of them forgave their Perpetrators and changed their lives.  Although I have heard and read about them, but never felt it in my heart.  This was the time I made a decision to forgive my enemies. 

The next day I made a good confession and felt the mercy of God in my heart, was feeling light and happy. 

In the evening the inner healing session was one of the best experiences of the retreat. During the session Brother asked us to forgive our enemies by taking their names, forgiving and praying for them in the name of Jesus.  I could finally forgive them all for the first time.  During the inner healing also asked us to hug the brothers present at the retreat by telling them that “Jesus Loves You”. As I went around hugging I experienced a kind of vibration in my body and there were tears running down my cheek. I felt the deep love of Jesus embracing me. This was one of the best experiences in my entire life.

I felt the 3 days of the retreat was too short and sad to leave.  I made a decision I will come again for the retreat atleast twice a year.

I praise and thank our Heavenly Father for all the speakers who helped in bringing the change in me by the Word of God.

I had a Wonderful experience at Nov JEHR (Jesus Encounter Healing Retreat)... Feeling the grace and peace within after receiving the most needed Sacrament of Reconciliation... Wanted to get rid of all the filth collected  knowingly and unknowingly from so many years.... Each talk was so good in its own way and so were the speakers.. Adoration and inner healing too helped as we hugged each other  tears rolling down as the unforgiveness had transformed into forgiveness.. Matthew 7:7 applies to me as I received what I long awaited..
