It's All About Control

It's clear who's driving my life spiritually and it's clear who's driving my life naturally.

At least to me it is. I'm driving and my path is clear as day regarding where the Lord is telling me to go. I may not know every toss and turn and that's ok. As long as the Lord is leading me and driving me, I'm good. How about you?

Sometimes I think part of the problem is where others get it mixed up. Some of them think they're driving our lives, because they like to get all up in our business. They think they can tell us how to think, what to say, how to say it, what to do and how to do it. Not so. No way.

Remember my blog post about the Pharisees (December 12, 2016). The people who are trying to influence how others think and how they proceed are similar to them. They are the religious people who think everything and everybody should be perfect just like their religious self-righteous selves. Well guess what? Don't you buy what they're selling. I'm not religious, never was, and never will be. I'm spiritual and God loves me the way He made me. And the people who really know you know you may be a little rough around the edges. Not much, just a tinge -- enough to tell people to stay out of your life, because they're not driving. you are. They don't control it. You do. Reminds me of the Janet Jackson song, Control (they probably even have a problem with me mentioning her song), but that's too bad.

The bottom line is that God is leading the way for us. He's directing our paths. He's telling us where to get off. And unless people know who you are, really are, then they have no say-so. Perhaps you feel a particular way about the people who are trying to box you in, because they think they know everything and you don't. 

The devil is a liar. Keep on keeping on baby and let God lead you. Not the people who don't know you and what drives you.

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 …
