Faith with works is alive

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.

Do you know that faith with works is alive, but faith without putting some effort behind it, is dead? James 2:14-26 is proof of that. In other words, nothing will move in our lives if we don't move. 

God didn't just create us to wait around for things to happen. He created us to make things happen, right? Remember, we can do all things through Christ who gives us the strength. And Philippians 4:13 is also proof of that. What I'm trying to convey here is that we can't just sit around and hope upon hope that our chances for that golden opportunity will just drop out of the sky. We may be waiting forever. Although I am far from achieving all that God has for me, I had to bust a move to get things going. I was waiting and waiting and nothing happened until I finally sat down at my laptop and started writing and the same for my podcast. Did I know exactly what I was going to write or what I would say? Nope, I just started and the momentum continues, and when that happens, it's hard to slow down. 

You have what it takes to live your dreams and God wants them for you. He wants that for us all. Pushing on and not waiting for the perfect time will ensure your works pay off one way or the other. And with works, faith is alive. Keep working and stay faithful. God will come through for you.

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
