A godly and biblically-based devotional to help people with their faith and confidence; to encourage, educate, and inform. Come everyday for inspiration. Almost everybody is going through something and you can get through it with Jesus. I am a witness to that fact. Never give up on the great blessings God already has lined up for you. Jeremiah 29:11 says, 'He knows the plans He has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'

Ask God to help you lift that weight.
Sometimes in life we deal with heavy burdens.
Big issues, serious circumstances, dire situations.
What may be a heavy weight for one person may not be a heavy weight for the next person, but they can be confronting equal weight. That means we can't judge the way a person should act when they're going through things, because we don't know how they see that weight placed on them. We don't know their strength. We have no idea just by looking at them.
Only God knows that.
That also means that when we are dealing with a heavy weight, God will be with us, but we have to trust Him. I made mistakes in the past by having heavy burdens that I thought I had to handle on my own and I wasted valuable time. Today I have burdens that should weigh heavily on me, but I trust God and I am stronger in dealing with them.
I remember when I lost my twins. There were two women who talked about the fact that I was still grieving for them just a few short days after. They didn't realize that the weight was heavy for me and that it would take me a while to get through it. I didn't know God then, but I am convinced I got through it faster, because He gave me the natural strength to get through it. Now that I know Him I can tap into His supernatural1 strength which enables me to get through things with His miraculous power. I can do nothing in my own strength if the weight is too heavy. Yet I know I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.2
What I'm here to tell you is if that weight you're trying to carry is too heavy for you, why not ask God to help you? Why not ask Him to give you the strength to lift it and carry it? You will only carry it for a short time, because with God all things are possible and through Him that heavy weight will make us stronger. He will give us supernatural strength to deal with our burdens when we cast them on Him.3
But we have to ask Him to help us. Even if we have to ask Him all day long.

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

She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
