Good Measure and Running Over

I must admit, I have a problem with a stingy selfish spirit. 

It's my pet peeve. I don't like it when we're in a position to help someone and we don't. I'm not talking about helping leeches or people who aren't helping themselves. Trying to help such people is like running in water. You can't do it and you can't go anywhere. I'm referring to us helping people who are helping themselves to do better. Those of us who can help in some way, it doesn't matter how big or small, should do so. Isn't there something each one of us can do for somebody at some point? Isn't there something we possess that God blessed us with that we can bless somebody with? It doesn't always have to be money. Growing up, my mother and aunt loved baking. They always had baking stuff around the kitchen and could whip up a cake in an instant. So guess what people often got from them? Yep, you guessed it, tasty cakes and pies too. Russell Wilson, the professional football player, blesses people by going into hospitals and visiting with them. I'm sure it goes much further, but he's using his time and probably his money, and that's awesome. 

Each one of us can add quality of life to somebody. We can give something and when we do that God will ensure we're blessed even more than we are already. Giving is a great thing and the Lord loves a cheerful giver. His word says, "give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you” (Luke 6:38).

That's great isn't it?

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
