Goals

God has so much for us. Why not tapped into His vision for us?
Has anyone ever told you there's power in the "pen?"

Yep, there is proof that if a person writes down what they want to achieve, more than likely they will achieve it. In other words, if you can vision yourself doing it, you will probably do it. And if you write it down your chances go up dramatically.

Write the vision.

And after you write it visualize yourself doing it over and over again.

Today I asked a question to a group of students. The question was, 'raise your hand if you visualize yourself successful.' Less than a quarter of the hands went up. That surprised me, because I thought at least half of them would have held their hands up high. I thought many of them would have dreamt big dreams.

I was wrong.

Some people just don't think big enough. And I'm not just talking about young people. There are so many of us not living our dreams, because we have given up. Achieving what God wants for us takes too much work, sacrifice, and giving up sleep, TV, and technology is not a viable option in our minds. So we live in mediocrity.

Even though we don't have to live a meager existence.

We have to get to the point where we force ourselves to work towards our goals. Those goals are the great things we want to do. It's going to take work and it will by no means come easy, because anything valuable will come with elbow grease and giving up something. You heard it before, nothing from nothing leaves nothing. We have to do something.

The moral of the story is that we have to write the vision, push harder, move quicker, and rise higher. Then those goals will manifest themselves one step at a step (or even more steps at a time with God in the picture). I figure if we all shoot high we will hit our target.

God has much more for us, but we have to believe that.

I feel free

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. How are you feeling today? What kind of head space have you been in lately? I ask, because I'm just wondering if anybody feels like me -- free like me. Free as an eagle. Free as can be. That's right, out with doing business the old stale way and in with a fresh new operation. It's a shifting happening in the atmosphere of Sharon's life and I'm moving on to the big and awesome things God has for me. What  do you say for yourself? What are you speaking over your life? What it is for you? 
For me, I am no longer afraid to go out in the deep end. I am no longer afraid to fly higher, I am no longer concerned about what I have or do not have, and I am no longer concerned about what anybody thinks or says. Who the heck cares anymore? I don't. Because God tells me he doesn't give me a spirit of fear or timidity (2 Timothy 1:7), but He gives me a spirit of love, confidence, power, self-control, and joy. And I…

Encourage yourself in God

Do you know that no matter what you may be going through, you can encourage yourself in the Lord? And the Lord will give you the strength and power you need in order to get through? Yes, He will do it. He did it for David when David probably found it difficult to understand how he would endure. But, guess what? God was with him and God blessed him too. There are so many things I love about David. One of those things is that he encouraged himself in the Lord beyond the challenging circumstances he found himself in (1 Samuel 30:6).
When it seemed all was lost, David didn't give up. When everyone turned their backs on him, he stayed with his vision. When his family and community were taken, he went forth with what God told him to do. David never left the Lord in spite of his circumstances. I love that he did the opposite of what some of us would do, he stayed with God, he didn't run away from God. And he didn't try to take matters into his own hands. He ran towards the order…

Jesus gives mercy

"Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road."
Isn't that another great testimony about God's mercy? That story comes from Mark 10:46-52 and it's encouraging for a number of reasons. Namely, that Jesus had mercy on a …
