RESTORE: a day retreat for women
“Hallelujah! Give praise, servants of the LORD; Praise the name of the LORD. Let the name of the LORD be blessed both now and forever.” Psalm 113: 1-2 Hallelujah, it is a word that means to rejoice in the LORD, often expressed in singing, or recalling His wondrous deeds. Perhaps Psalm 106:12 describes it best when it says, “Then they believed his words; they sang his praise.” Our hallelujahs often rise in our hearts as they respond to seeing God move. It’s as if heaven reaches down and intersects earth right inside of us, and our joy wells up with such force that the only way to express it is in a praise back to God. Then there are other times, times when we know there is nowhere to go but God, no words to believe in but His. And as we turn to those words and hold on to them for dear life, a praise of response can’t help but rise in us, acknowledging that He is doing just as He said He would, “never leaving our side.” Our hallelujahs are our response to God based on His unfailing character toward us. They are our sometimes our greatest evidence to others, and even ourselves that God is real, and He is real in us. "Finding Your Hallelujah" is our theme for this year’s retreat. We will celebrate and bask in the wonder with Mary whose compulsory praise broke out in response to God’s confirmation of His word to her. We will weep with Jesus who, after leaving the last supper, sang His own hallelujahs on His way to His greatest trial. We will ponder the how’s of those moments God allows our hallelujahs to find us, and the whys of those moments He allows us to be stretched in having to reach for our hallelujahs. You will walk away not only having a reason to sing, but also knowing and hearing the Voice of the One who's been singing over you this whole time. GRAB YOUR GIRLFRIENDS & COME JOIN US!!
