Faith without Working

James 2:14-17 talks about faith without doing some type of action, not really being faith at all.

Faith with nothing with it, is just idle words. It's cheap talk. As I get older I'm getting to the point where I'm starting to expect very little from words and more from doing from works, from working. In other words, no one has to shower me with fancy words. I'm more impressed with the evidence and the proof behind their mouth. I'm more impressed with people putting up or shutting up. Placing their money where their mouth is. Otherwise it's just mere words that don't help anybody. Just words and nothing else.

The one thing about writing this blog is that the expectations I put on myself are pretty high. When I'm feeling tired I think about the things I write and I get a little burst of adrenaline that I must continue on. I must never stop and I won't. You see, I know what the devil tried to do my family and I know what he tried to do to others' families too. And every time I think about my faith and my trust in the God I serve, I know what He God did to turn things around. I know what He did concerning all the things He promised. 

Consequently, because of all of that and much more, I chose to rise and shine. Thus, faith without my works won't happen, because what God has birth -- it's alive and kicking. That means you will see the proof in the pudding and I will be confident in that, even if nobody else is.

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
