Godly Devotions

Do you devote any time to the Lord each day? Colossians 3:16 says, "let the word of Christ dwell in you richly..." We can all make time for the Lord, for He is good and His mercy endures forever.

There are many ways to devote time to God. It can be a few minutes or much longer. I use "few" loosely, because it may be literally a few for some and much more for others. To each its own. I do not believe God is interested in quantity. I think He's more concerned with quality. 

Devoting time to God each day is meditating (intense focus) on His word and worshiping Him in some way, which is different from person to person. Now, I'm not a deep person, some people think I am, but I'm not. I like to keep things simple, so when I use words like devotion and meditation I don't mean something super spiritual like staying in a prayer closet for long periods of time. However, if that works for you, awesome. It's just not my thing. Personally speaking I use my blog posts for devotion, because it involves looking up scripture and ensuring I know the details and/or overview of its meaning. Sometimes my devotion time is a few minutes and sometimes a few hours. My worship time may be at another time like when I'm in my car or what may have you. It defers from day to day. What I'm trying to convey is to do what suits you and your personality. It's just important that we do something to get us closer to the Lord and dedicating part of our day to reading the scriptures can help us achieve just that. An article by the Institute in Basic Life Principles says the following about reading/meditating on God's word:
"the words of Scripture are living words. They contain eternal wisdom held in the shell of human words. God wants us to “break open” these human words and begin to discover the rich wealth of personal application and understanding that they hold. This goal can be accomplished as you memorize and meditate on scripture."
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly..." (Colossians 3:16).

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

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

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.
