God talks everyday

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post below.
Do you know God talks to people everyday? The question is, do we hear what He has to tell us?

In Joyce Meyer's book, How to Hear from God, she says, "God wants to speak to us about the plan He has for our lives" (p. vii). I can say that today, more than ever before, I am in tune with what God has to say regarding His plans for my life. I don't know all of them, of course, but He's revealed some of it. How about you?

How to Hear from God, is a book I've had for awhile. I pick up from time to time, because the content is that evergreen content that can be used during so many times in ones life. The following was taken from chapter one (p. 3):
"The world makes it easy for us to fill our ears with all kinds of things that drown out the voice of God and push Him far, far into the background of our lives. However, the day comes for every person when only God remains. Everything else in life eventually passes away; when it does God will still be there." 
I don't know about you, but I can most definitely identify with that. I remember a time when I let life's problems and challenges drown out the voice of God. I didn't hear Him, because my focus was on other things. My concentration was on worrying about the things in life that were causing me pain. Pastor Joyce says that when we try to hide and ignore God, that makes it harder to hear from Him (p. 3). So true! That's exactly what I did and I missed Him in so many ways. But that was then and this is now. I know that instead of running away from God, I should have been running to Him. I finally came to the conclusion that I couldn't work through any situation in my life if God wasn't a part of them. And I came to understand that I needed Him and I wanted to hear from Him. I needed Him to help me sort out some things in my life and He did. Look at Isaiah 40:28:31:

Have you not known?Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

Let those words be food for your soul as you tune into what the Lord has for your life. Be encouraged everybody as you continue your awesome journey and conversation with the Lord. He wants to hear from you and I would bet that you want to hear from Him, as well.

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

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
