The Pusher

We need people who help
push us to become better.
Who exactly is she? Who exactly is he?

Before I answer that, let me just state that we should have at least one in our lives. 

The Pusher

A Pusher is someone who does just that -- He pushes us to be better and to do better. She is the person who is available anytime we need to talk and who is never bothered by us "bothering" her. In short, Pushers are our cheerleaders, but not the "yes" type of people. It doesn't matter how old or young we are, we need that person who pushes us out of our comfort zone. Pushers are the wise people God put in our lives just for us. They tell us what they're thinking about us and our lives and they're not in the business of stroking our egos. They have our best interest in mind at all times and they know we will have to stretch in order to get to the things of God. For, they know there are no natural shortcuts in life. There are only shortcuts created by God. 

Pushers stay in tune with God and they seek Him often for direction over people's lives. Paul was such a person. He pushed (encouraged) people and he also gave them a piece of his mind when needed. He did it all in love and the people who listened were blessed as a result. 

Do you have a Pusher in your life? If not, why not?  If you don't have one, pray to God for one to come into your life. If you have one already, you are ahead of the game.

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 …
