God loves us in spite of our mistakes

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Do you know God loves us in spite of our mistakes? Do you know God loves us in spite of ourselves? And do you know that when we make a mistake and ask God for forgiveness, He will forgive us, because His love runs that deep?

This is it: Even though we fall short. Even though we made bad and downright stupid mistakes and choices, God still loves us. And God still wants to give us His best. He still has many blessings stored up for us, that our head would explode if we truly knew how extensive those blessings were. Honestly, we will never really know, because God's blessings are just too abundant and infinite for our minds to wrap around such a concept. We simply do not have the capacity to comprehend it. Nobody does. God is just too massive and beyond us to be able to know just how deep it goes. So if it’s any consolation to you, just be ok with knowing that there’s only one God of the universe who loves us and accepts every mistake you and I have made, the mistakes we make now, and the mistakes we will make tomorrow. 

And why would He do that you may ask? Well, because He created us in His own image (Genesis 1:27) and He knew us before we were born (Jeremiah 1:5). So why would He not love us even though we fell short yesterday, we fell short today, and we will fall short again tomorrow? You understand what I’m saying here? Ok here it is again: God loves us in spite of our mistakes. And He forgives us when we go humbly to Him to ask for forgiveness. So we have embrace that as we go forth in love while doing the great things we’re doing and the great things we will continue to do. God loves us in spite of our mistakes.

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
