RETREAT & CONFERENCE MULTI SESSIONS
Jesus said, “I have come that they might have life, and have it to the full,” (John 10:10). So what keeps us from experiencing that abundant life that we all long for? What keeps us from living in the freedom that Jesus gave His life for? What keeps us from entering our own personal Promised Land? In this session, Sharon shares how a full calendar does not mean a full life. She shares how feelings of inferiority, insecurity, and inadequacy can stand in the way of experiencing all that God has planned for those who love Him, (1 Corinthians 2:9). However, when we believe the truth of who we are, what we have, and where we are as a child of God, He turns our “I can’t” into “God can.” This liberating seminar also includes a sessions on Leaving the Past Behind and Taking Every Thought Captive.
Seeing Yourself as God Sees You
In this session, Sharon begins by describing the unrealistic expectations placed on women today. This comical segue invites women to relax and enjoy a little holy humor. Sharon then shares her own personal story of God’s deliverance from tumultuous childhood wounds. She helps women understand that each of us, no matter what our background, can overcome feelings of inferiority, insecurity, and inadequacy, by understanding who we are, what we have, and where we are in Christ…but it all depends on our decision to believe God’s Truth. Seeing yourself as God sees you opens the door to experiencing the abundant life Jesus came to give.
Letting Go of the Past
Sometimes what keeps us from living fully and free in the present is hanging on to painful events from the past. Many times we sit in the jail cell of shame and condemnation or bitterness and resentment, even though Jesus has flung the door to freedom open wide and beckons us to move forward. Whether is it struggling with something that has been done to you, or something that has been done through you…it’s time to let it go and live free. In this session, Sharon shows you how to leave the past behind by finding the hidden treasure in each painful situation, forgiving those who have hurt you, and forgiving yourself. Expect to leave this session with the weight of your past off your shoulders and onto His.
Taking Every Thought Captive
Every spiritual battle is won or lost on the battlefield of the mind. Scripture says, “As a man thinks within himself, so he is.” In this session Sharon teaches four important steps to taking every thought captive and renewing your mind with the Truth. You’ll leave armed with the truth and ready to experience victory in the battlefield of you mind!
SESSION FOUR (Session Four is an optional session for multiple day retreats.)
Come Dream with Me
Every little girl has dreams for her life, but for many of us, life took a different turn. In this session Sharon challenges us to dust off our hopes and dare to dream again – through God’s eyes. Can you risk the hope that God still has dreams for your life? That He hasn’t forgotten you? Place your hand firmly in His – take a deep breath and begin the exciting journey to a place you thought you’d never find: the dream God planned for you all along.
