Living out God's purpose

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.

Do you know, your purpose and easy don't go together? They don't match. If we are going to go towards everything the Lord has for us there is no getting around doing the challenging and constantly going out our comfort zone. Purpose involves total trust in God. There's no half-stepping on that. It's total commitment and when we're in that zone, then God has something to work with. We can't sit around and complain that our life is ho-hum, because we're not busting any moves, then become all bummed out when God doesn't move on our behalf. Why should He when we don't really believe it? When we don't really believe Him?

In other words, we can't say we're wholeheartedly dedicated when we won't take calculated risks and smart chances towards God's purpose for our lives. I know that more than anybody, because there was one time when I just sat around and did nothing. I just waited for things to drop out of the sky and I didn't move. My life was stagnant, but not anymore though. When we take a leap for the Lord He will act. We just have to take the first step and continually do that until the mission and goal are accomplished. Then start the entire process over again. That's life -- a purpose driven life. And when we're all about that life, then there's greatness in that, because God gives us so many rewards throughout it all. Proverbs 19:21 says, "many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand." Purpose is worth the effort.

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
