If you’re setting goals, planning to be a healthier version of yourself, or desiring some kind of change as the new year begins, it might mean your heart is asking you to focus on some form of self-care. In order to accomplish what you need to do for yourself, you must plan to take time away to focus on just you. Trilogy is ready to help you reconnect – you never know what God is desiring to do in your life.
The story of Trilogy began with a vision/drawing labeled simply as “Reflection & Learning B&B.” Ministry founder (and my husband), Greg Wasinski , was feeling a constant tug from God to create a space where people could unplug from the world to retreat. However, Greg couldn’t put his finger on exactly what that was supposed to look like.
He decided to go on a silent retreat of his own for a few days, going deeper into prayer and opening himself up to seek clarity of what his vision meant. After he returned, Greg expounded on a dream he had of a place people could go to get away for a different type of retreat experience. He drew a map as he explained a dream and what he saw us doing someday. It would be a place that had “bed-in-breakfast” type amenities where we could serve people with the same focus as his Faith & Real Life – “Let Me Be…” Ministry: helping people find hope through faith.
Now, this was just a “dream.”
We never had any idea it would develop just a few short years later into a reality. The time during the pandemic showed us that now, more than ever, people really need a place of refuge and peace to sort out their thoughts about what’s most important in their lives; a place for introspection that offers people a chance to learn more about themselves; where couples can reconnect or families can grow closer to each other; a neutral location that organizations can gather to find ways to work more effectively together or ways they can serve others based on common values.
While the new Trilogy Retreat Property doesn’t look exactly like the map that came from Greg’s original drawing (especially the golf course), we have lots of ideas and plans to add many elements from it over time. In the end, it was because of Greg’s willingness to take the time and step away from his usual environment to get a different view of life that he was able to recognize the changes his heart was longing for and open up to what God was asking. While you might not be called to such a major undertaking, there are many things we all think about that need our time and attention to see where we should be placing our focus to find peace, joy, courage, and strength. So, the only question is, “What will you do for yourself this year?”
