Yes, the Lord is pleased with me, that I know

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Once upon a time I didn't think the Lord was pleased with me. You see, I had made some mistakes. I had dropped the ball. And I had made some stupid decisions. I wasn't feeling too hot about myself either at that time, because I had disappointed even myself and I eventually forgave myself. I had too. So, I was wrong about God. He was still pleased with me even though I made mistakes, even though I dropped the ball, and even though I made some stupid decisions. I know that, because God has made me fearfully and wonderfully. Yes, Psalm 139:14 is proof of that. And I know it. I know it also because Romans 8:1 tells me there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. So, yes the Lord is pleased with me, that I know.

Do you realize He is also pleased with you? He is. Yes, I'm here to tell you that. I am here to tell you He is pleased with you, as well. He is pleased with the people who made mistakes, who dropped the ball, and who made some bad decisions. If that describes you too, well we're in the same boat and He has some great things in store for you and for me. So we are going to continue to feel good about ourselves no matter what happened or didn't happen. Yes, the Lord is pleased with me, that I know. We have to continuously say that over our lives...forever.

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 is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno
