New Steps

God orders our steps
Isn't it a great feeling when you see children walk for the first time?

It's a feeling of jubilation and excitement for a new level for them. Those moments of elation and celebration are prolonged as the parent continues to revel in the new accomplishment their child just took. They are simply besides themselves. What an amazing thing to experience. Such a proud moment.

It's a new beginning. 

It's a new way of thinking for kids, a new way for them to act and interact, a new way of being. It's a fascinating world of possibilities that have just opened up to them. Now they will be able to explore a bold new world. From their newfound curiosity and freedom, they will understandably get into things. A lot of things. Some good and some not so good. Some things they will like and some things not so much. Nevertheless they are seeing a new set of opportunities and their attitude is that there are no limits in what they can do. They have a plan going forth to seize every one of those possibilities...until they are redirected by their protective parents to steer clear of them. There may be things that can hurt them. Parents only want their children to venture into the places that will offer challenges, yes, but nothing more than they can handle, nothing dangerous and nothing so big for them that they will fail. Parents love them far too much for that. 

This is the way it is with God. He is our father who watches over us. He never takes His eyes off His children. He encourages us and celebrates us. As we explore, He wants us to win. There are so many possibilities He has set before us. We just have to be careful, is all. He wants us to continue to walk towards Him and obtain great things. Even if we bump into a table or two or fall off the bed from time to time, He's got us, and we will be alright. If we get hurt we can go to Him for anything. He is always with us, because His love for us will never change. It remains strong and we can trust Him.

What am I saying?

Just as great parents are there for their children from when they take their first steps and throughout their lives, God is the same with His children. He never leaves us and He continuously orders our steps. We can't fail when we walk in His ways. 

Impossible.

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

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

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 th
