REFRESHING SPRING MINISTRIES invites you to experience inner healing through our study,  Heart Matters: Discovering God’s Plan for your Life.   This is a 10-week class that is designed to help accomplish the mission of Refreshing Spring Ministries which is to heal and equip the Body of Christ by doing what Jesus did – “binding up the brokenhearted, proclaiming freedom for the captives, bringing release from darkness for the prisoners.

Ever wonder why your relationships suffer, why you are always angry, why you seem to be always left out, why you are unable to believe God for good things?  Did you grow up hearing things like “you’ll never amount to anything”, or “children should be seen and not heard”.  Many heart wounds happen when we are very young and they can affect us all of our lives.      Anxiety, depression, isolation and withdrawal are symptoms of heart wounds.  We get wounded in relationships, and we all need safe, trusting relationships in order to mature and heal.

If we listen to the words that come out of our mouth, and become aware of our attitudes and responses to others, we will be able to realize what is stored in our heart.  “For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.”  Matthew 12:34b.  Often when we are wounded, our hearts become resentful, bitter and even hard.  A hardened heart causes us to live a life far from the destiny God has for us.   Heart Matters helps you understand that bad fruit in your life has a “bitter” root.  And when that is uncovered, we can begin to pull those up and give them to Jesus for healing.

Unresolved traumas can hinder our healing process and lock us into a state of dormancy.  Heart Matters will teach you how to recognize traumas and how you can be free of residual effects.  Coming out of denial of the types of trauma you have endured will be a huge step for some who take this class.

God has a plan for your life to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope.  He desires an intimate love relationship with you and when you see what a good Father we have, new doors will open for you.  He wants you to be able to receive the depths of His love and also be a vessel to give that unconditional love to others.

The healing of our heart wounds is a process.  The first time through this class, all you may experience is recognition.  The Holy Spirit will help you in the process.  He will author your personal healing journey.  Because of God’s great love for his people, He pursues us so that we can be free and live an abundant life.  Taking the Heart Matters class, either live, in a small group or online will be an enriching and life-changing experience.
