But let us ask ourselves...
• Does your body and how you carry it image God’s mystery, loving nature, and beauty?
• Do you feel romanced--- pursued, wooed, sought after and longed for?
• Do you find yourself playing an irreplaceable role in a great adventure in your own life and
in the lives of others? Do you feel desperately needed, appreciated and affirmed?
• Do you find yourself able to unveil your beauty? Do you inspire, nourish and draw out the
beauty in others? Does your beauty (mere presence) allow others to be themselves and
draw them closer to God?
THE ATTACK ON WOMAN
• WE DESIRE TO BE ROMANCED -> “YOU ARE NOT
WORTH PURSUING; YOU ARE NOT WORTH FIGHTING FOR”
• WE DESIRE TO PLAY AN IRREPLACEABLE ROLE IN A SHARED ADVENTURE
-> “YOU ARE NOT NEEDED. YOU HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER.”
• WE DESIRE TO UNVEIL OUR BEAUTY -> “YOU ARE NOT
BEAUTIFUL (or not BEAUTIFUL ENOUGH).
You do not have what it takes to inspire
Our response to these lies...
To prove these lies are untrue by hiding or denying our heart’s desires
To affirm these lies by clinging to people, relationships, or situations hoping they will fulfill our desires
What drives me to behave this way?
What am I trying to prove in the way I handle my relationships?
What needs of mine am I trying to meet by being this way?
How does this affect my relationships
with others and with God?
We are the crown of creation
The design of our bodies and our hearts is what makes us say we are made from God’s image and likeness.
Woman is at her best when she’s being a woman
God was withholding something from her.
That HE does not love her enough to want her to have the BEST.
That if she wanted the BEST she would have to grasp it for
herself rather than rely on God to give it to her.
At one point in our life, we may have believed that
we are not worth pursuing,
we are not needed
or we are not beautiful enough
Who are you...?
“No one can hurt me anymore.
I will not allow anyone or anything to hurt me anymore. I am okay. I don’t need anyone.” -
"I AM NOTHING,
I AM NEVER ENOUGH,
NOTHING WILL MAKE ME BETTER." -
: You are not worth pursuing,
not worth fighting for.
: Prove myself worthy of affirmation and admiration OR show I have no need of being romanced or of intimate relationships.
: Cling to people who will prove that I am worth pursuing, so that I will not be abandoned.
: You are not needed.
You have nothing to offer.
: I am indispensable OR I don’t need anyone.
: Relationships prove my worth so I will do all I can to keep them
: You are not beautiful;
you don’t have what it takes to inspire me.
: See my beauty (vanity)
OR I don’t need to be beautiful.
: I am not beautiful at all
OR I can attract others through excessive makeup,
revealing clothes, etc.
A Mystery to Be Exposed or to Be Kept Hidden
A Relationship to Be Used or to Be Denied
A Beauty to be Exploited or to be Veiled
The lies the evil one feeds us can be damaging to our hearts.
It is important that we become aware of these lies that made us who we are now
We also need to see how these lies may have affected the way we see God and how we relate with Him.
we must not depend on the way
WE were molded or the way others were molded, no matter how good their lives seem.
We must always keep our eyes focused on the One True Person whose mold we should imitate,
solely that of our Lord Jesus.
