Reverence of the Lord

Proverbs 19:23 says, "the fear of the Lord leads to life, and whoever has it rests satisfied; he will not be visited by harm." That verse is not talking about being afraid of God. Nor is it saying our life will be perfect. It's saying we should respect God's authority over our lives and have a healthy fear of Him in order that we remain committed and submitted to Him. God is ruler over our lives, for our life is not our own (Jeremiah 10:23). And when we acknowledge Him as our Lord and Savior, we are better able to withstand life's challenges that will surely come. God will hold us close and He will be with us to give us strength as His love envelopes us. I have seen that happen time and time in my life and in so many others. God is real, people. 

A reverence of the Lord and being in His kingdom brings us spiritual (and natural) riches and glory. Remember, God is an unlimited God who never ceases to amaze. He performs miracles and wonders that defy reason. So, yes, reverencing the Most High is not difficult at all. It's a welcome blessing that comes with being a child of the King of kings and the Lord of lords. #blessed

Hear what Sha Sha has to say about reverencing God. Sha Sha is my avatar, so her face is based on my face and the voice you hear is actually me speaking through her.

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 blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
