I wonder how many of us will sacrifice what truly means the most to us to walk with God. 

It's going to cost us something whether we walk with Him or not. I rather sacrifice to walk with Him, because it's worth it on so many levels. For starters I'd be blessed to be a blessing and great things will come from me. That's how it was with Abraham and if God did it for him He can do it for me and for you too.    

How many of us would be willing to give up a prized possession? That's what Abraham did when God tested his faith (Genesis 22). He was willing to give up his own son until an angel of the Lord stopped him (v 11/12). Now that's sacrifice. And Genesis 12:1 tells us and Hebrews 11:8-11 reminds us of how he left his family to go to an unknown land the Lord promised him. He trusted the Lord and of course it paid off. It always does when we put our life in His hands.

Very few, if any, of Abraham's decisions were easy ones concerning all he had to do to get all he got, but he was obedient and extremely blessed as a result. He became the father of many nations and kings came from him. He had power, influence, and extreme wealth, but most importantly he was a mighty man of God. Thus, he decreased as the Lord increased (John 3:30). Or we can say he willingly  put himself below God and he was exalted (lifted up) for that very reason. He was brought low to be brought higher. That's what sacrifice will get you. He knew his place with God the Father, he loved God and obeyed his commands. He made the choice to be used by God. 

I wonder how many of us will sacrifice what truly means the most to us to walk with God.

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

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. 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.

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
