More

We have to help others.
How are you living?

I asked the question, because the answer indicates fulfillment.

If we're not living the way we want to be living, there is much more for us. But...

...it's going to cost us something.

If we want to be blessed, we have to be willing to be a blessing. Why would God give more to a selfish person? That would make God selfish. We know that's impossible. God is the God of abundance and that's how He operates. If He gives us abundance, He expects us to spread that abundance in helping others -- with their natural walk and with their spiritual walk. Then when they get on their feet, they in turn do the same thing.

Helping hands, helping hands.

So how are we living?

If we want to live large, we have to do more. We weren't born to simply exist without making an impact. Nobody was born to just walk the earth and not add anything. That's why God has us pour into what society calls bums or outcasts. That's right, we may be the ones called to help them. They are God's children too and He doesn't play favorites. He loves us all.

So we must not get it twisted.

The people in those high rise buildings with the corner offices overlooking the ocean, be careful and don't believe the hype. CEO's are no more important than the person living under a bridge in the worst part of the world. 

It doesn't matter to God.

The tables can turn in a minute. God can shift anything He wants in an instant.

It's simple really. The more we get from God, the more we have to help people. More is not just for our joy and satisfaction. It doesn't work that way, because to whom much is given, much is required and if we have been entrusted to much, then more is demanded from us.1

Not rocket science.

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 …
