Life and Chocolate

We have to live life to the fullest. I know it's a process to doing that and it doesn't come over night. Yet God wants us to strive to do so. It doesn't matter what happened or didn't happen, we have to live our life unto Christ. How many of us are willing to let Him lead us? "You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore" (Psalm 16:11).

If God still has us here, it's for a reason. I sometimes think over my life and I can't help but think, but God. Remember the ole saying about life being like a box of chocolates? Those chocolates that we sometimes get around Christmas or Valentines Day are kind of like life, aren't they? Well, some part of life anyway. Some of those candies are really great, some are disgusting, and some are just ok. You can't tell which ones taste like what until you put one in your mouth and start chewing. Then you can decide whether to keep chewing or not. Life is not quite like that, because we can't pick the life we get. We can't choose what we get and what we don't get, but what we can do is decide how we choose to deal with what we get. We can decide how we're going to react to what comes our way and our attitude about it, because it's our choice, just like those chocolates.

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 …
