Humble Beginnings are Ok

My unofficial motto these days seems to be, 'don't despise humble/small beginnings.' It seems just about everything I have been doing has started small. And guess what? That's totally ok with me. Starting slow, many times, sets a solid foundation that is necessary for getting to and maintaining the next level. So, it's all good. I'm not rushing God anymore. 

Not despising humble beginnings is a message taken from the book of Zechariah 4:10. According to the Bible Project, Zechariah 'was a prophet who challenged and motivated the people of Israel to rebuild God's temple after the exile from Babylon and to look for the fulfillment of God's promises.' Zechariah didn't want the people to be worried about starting from ruin, starting in the gutter, starting from little to nothing. He didn't want them to despise those things. We shouldn't either. Don't worry about starting small. This blog is gaining steam, but let me tell you, it's started on the bottom and now it's going to be where God is sending it. I'm ok with that. I know I could get off of blogspot, but it's where I want to be for now -- it's working for me. Where are you starting from? Is it starting from a low humble place? If so, it doesn't matter, because if God sanctioned it, keep going. Your time will come. Humble beginnings are perfectly ok. God can work with that.

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.
