Perfect Love

God is perfect and He creates perfection.
Do you know you were perfectly made by God? 

It's true. So you can jump for joy and rejoice in knowing that.

There is no way He created us by chance. There is no way He created us without specific plans1 He always had for our lives. All of us have a part to play and He doesn't take that lightly. Thus, He wants the best for His best -- All of us.

That means you were no accident. You were created on purpose. How wonderful and awesome that is.

Our creation was orchestrated with perfection and extreme accuracy by God. He is the God of perfection. Everything He creates, He does with precision so sharp we could never come anywhere close to comprehending it. 

That means we're precious in His eyes. 

Since we were all created from God's image, we should have the same love for ourselves that God has for us. We should rest in knowing that nothing can take the place of God's distinct plan He created for His loving treasures -- All of us. That's right, we were wonderfully made by God. He always creates from love, because God is love2

That means you were created in love, from love, because you are loved. So forget about anything you were told to the contrary. God says different. He wouldn't die for just anybody. He died, because He loved each and every one of us and He never wants us to suffer (He already did that for us).

That means you have every right to love yourself and to love others, because God gave you that right when He created you from His perfect love.

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…

The promise is still the promise

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. You know, sometimes in life just when it seems things are looking up, you turn around and boom, a step backwards. Just when you were starting to see a change, a shift, some forward motion, things slow down, almost to a standstill. Then you start to second guess yourself and question your moves to the point where it almost makes you want to just stop and not move at all. And you just about say, 'I'm done with all of this.' 
I know, because I've been there and sometimes I go there now. Yes, sometimes when I look at my progress, I say, 'dag Lord, why aren't I making more progress? Why does it seem I'm hardly making any headway?' And before I say another word, I think about Isaiah 40:29-31, which says: He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar hi…

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 …
