Returning to WaterBrooks

WaterBrooks. Taken from Psalm 42:1 “As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants for You, O God.” The vision…a place designed for solitude and prayer…a place to be still and to Know that He is God. We will return to WaterBrooks in Vermont the first of May as the leaves are just beginning to unfurl and the swollen brooks are still roaring with the melted snow running off the mountains. A pair of Canadian Geese have already laid their eggs in a nest at the foot of the Cross, and are quietly resting in the shadow of the Cross. Such a silent but powerful reminder that we, too, are to lay down our burdens, our hopes, our dreams, at the feet of our Lord, and to simply trust Him with a quiet heart.

A local Vermont pastor visited WaterBrooks a few weeks ago for some quiet time alone with God, and sent these short videos to us in Ohio where we spend the winter months. As you watch them, please remember to pray for us as we desire to serve Him by serving His people.

Simply trusting every day;
Trusting through a stormy way;
Even when my faith is small,
Trusting Jesus, that is all.

Trusting as the moments fly,
Trusting as the days go by,
Trusting Him, whate’er befall,
Trusting Jesus, that is all.

Devotional Thoughts By Sue Thomas Ministry Updates

Sue Thomas Ministries View All →

We seek to be a vessel, an outpouring of God’s love, to bring the good news to the afflicted, to bind up the broken hearted, to set the captive free, to comfort those who mourn, and to bring the oil of gladness and the mantle of praise to all that we meet and serve.

We undertake our mission through our outreach of ministering to the spirit, mind, and body, whether it be in renewal through silent retreat and prayer at WaterBrooks, through encouraging those with deafness and other physical challenges at Kennels of Levi, or through meeting the needs of our brothers and sisters among the homeless with Operation Silent Night.

We strive to fulfill our mission, not through our own might and power, but by resting on the firm guiding hand of faith in God’s providence, provisions and promises…for what He has started, He will so complete.
