GoodHeart Womens Weekend
September 6th-9th, 2012
A GoodHeart Womens weekend is based on the best selling book Captivating by John and Staci Eldredge.
Song of Songs 2:10 Arise, my darling, my beautiful one and come with me.
Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dreams. She longs to be swept up into a romance, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, to be the beauty of the story. Those desires are far more than child's play. They are the secret to the feminine heart. And yet, how many women do you know who ever find that life?
As the years pass by, the heart of a woman gets pushed aside, wounded, buried. She finds no romance except in novels, no adventure except on television, and she doubts very much that she will ever be the Beauty in any tale. Most women think they have to settle for a life of efficiency and duty, chores, and errands, striving to be the women they "ought" to be but often feeling they have failed.
Sadly, too many messages for Christian women add to the pressure. "Do these ten things, and you will be a godly woman." The effect has not been good on the feminine soul. But her heart is still there. Sometimes when she watches a movie, sometimes in the wee hours of the night, her heart begins to speak again. A thirst rises within her to find the life she was meant to live; the life she dreamed of as a little girl.
The message of "Captivating" is this: Your heart matters more than anything else in all creation. The desires you had as a little girl and the longings you still feel as a woman are telling you of the life God created you to live. He offers to come now as the Hero of your story, to rescue your heart and release you to live as a fully alive and feminine woman. A woman who is truly captivating.
God has set within you a femininity that is powerful and tender, fierce and alluring. No doubt it has been misunderstood. Surely it has been assaulted. But it is there, your true heart, and it is worth recovering. You are captivating. So we invite you to take a journey with us, a journey of discovery and healing. For your heart is the prize of God’s Kingdom, andhas come to win you back for himself, all of you. We pray that God will use this event in your life, in your heart, to bring healing, restoration, joy, and life!”
Come deepen your love with the one who created your Captivating heart, encounter the love of God and deepen the understanding of His heart. Allow him to assure you, "The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with his love, He will rejoice over you with singing." Zeph. 3:17
