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.

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. 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

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.

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
