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.'

Do you have a big head?
Yep, you heard it right.
And watch out.
That means we must not get the big head, because of what God did for us. Don't fall for that feeling that we're on top of the world. Don't let us get overly confident, because we know how blessed we are for making it through the valley. Don't get so full of ourselves, because of all of our accomplishments.
Remember what happened to Samson (Judges 13). He gave away what God blessed him with as his source of strength and power. He got the big head and God left him. Thus, he wasn't able to be effective in the land.
Don't you think for one minute that people don't know from whence you draw your strength and power. It's the gift God gave you to inspire and uplift people. People see your gift and some of them don't like it. They wish they had it, so they will use tricks and schemes to render you powerless and weak. You must remember what happened to you "yesterday." All that pain, heartache, humiliation, embarrassment, pride, and God knows what else. Don't dwell on it, but don't forget it.
Be careful and stay strong in the Lord. For, they think you'll slip again and if you're not careful they'll be right. Seek God always and stay with Him this time. Then look in the mirror and determine what you see. If you see a new creation, that's good. If you see more of the old you, that's not good. In fact it's bad. Pray and ask God for help if you see the latter. If you see the former, pray for continued strength, power, and more humility.
"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you" (James 4:10).
And that humility will keep your head small. Then your strength and power will be evident. Then people will be helped by you.
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

We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

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
