There are many promises that God makes in the Bible. Do you know them? Do you believe them? Do you feel them in your heart to the extent that you believe them? What if you felt in your heart to the depth you knew God's promises? This workshop is designed to help you do that....
The focus of the Promises of God Workshop is to dwell on God's promises and feel in your heart what He tells you He promises. Sometimes we can get discouraged and feel distant from God because we don't know what He has promised, believe He keeps his promises or feel that a particular promise is for us. During this 3 hour workshop, participants can paint a warm-up painting exercise followed by 3 paintings focused on His promises.
Promises of God Background
The Promises of God Workshop was developed by Anna Elliott, as a response to knowing God's promises, but needing to focus and experience them to the depth that she knew them so that her belief in God keeping His promises and how she felt about them were aligned with what she knew to be true. When we our experiences or feelings about a promise is that a promise is for other people not us, or that He doesn't keep His promises, we can interpret that to mean that God doesn't love us or that He won't keep them.
What is Paint His Promises?
Paint His Promises is an experiential workshop designed to help you find out what you think, belief and feel about God's promises, and to help you connect with God through knowing, believing and feeling His promises through painting them.
The goal is to acknowledge focus on a particular promise and find out what it means to you, to paint what represents that promise, and to know what it means to you. There will be time to bring it to God and have Him help you connect with Him by resetting what you believe and feel about His promises.
It is also designed to help you feel closer to Him by help you remember
His promises when you need them, and to go deeper with your feelings
about His promises.
Maybe you struggle to find the time to think about His promises until
you get in a jam. Maybe you want to make the time, but the urgent gets
in the way of the important, or you don't know how you'd go about it. Or
you've tried but need someone to walk you through it. Or you are
interested in being led through the process in a live, in-person workshop
in a community of people. This workshop gives you dedicated time and an experience to address each of those aspects in a way that supports you for connecting with God through His promises.
Each person's Paint His Promises experience is unique to them. It is your opportunity to hear from God and paint what you need to paint, which can be realized by you during the workshop.
Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is for individuals interested in painting His promises, knowing His promises, providing an awareness of your relationship to His promises, having an opportunity to reset them if needed and connecting to God through His promises.
