Steadfast

Steadfast -- that's a great word for the people who are determined, unstoppable, unmovable, and unshakable when it comes to having faith, serving, and staying true to the Lord God. You can't let life's struggles, pain, challenges, hurt, setbacks, and sorrow stop you from knowing God doesn't give any of us more than we can handle. He's with us every step of the way, because He still has a great plan for our lives (Jeremiah 29:11).

Being steadfast is another term for being faithful that God is not going to leave you in a state of despair, despondency, or a place of helplessness. Do you believe that? You have to believe it, because God acts on our faith -- belief and trust that He will do all the great things He said He would do in our lives. We have to be steadfast in our faith in Him. There's a story in the bible (Mark 5:25-34) about a woman who had an issue with blood. She bled for 12 years and went to many doctors who could not heal her. In fact she got worse. Twelve years. Yet she didn't let up in her faith that she would be healed. When she had an encounter with Jesus -- when she was so desperate for Him, she touched his garments -- enough to make her well by His power. And when she touched His clothes, immediately the blood stopped. When Jesus realized what happened he said, "go in peace, your faith has made you well" (v 34). Just that quick her suffering stopped. She was steadfast, determined, unstoppable, unmovable, and unshakable in her faith. 

What if your blessing is also in your next faith move?

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.
