He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus


“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6). That's what Paul was saying to the church and to the people of Philippi and as far as I'm concerned, he's still talking to us today. It is written that we, the righteous, shall live by faith, right? That's Habakkuk 2:4. Then, the work the Lord began in us -- by His grace -- should give us the confidence to continuously live for Him. And when we do that, then everything will line up for us. Am I saying everything will be perfect and flawless? No, I'm saying that God will ensure His will, will be done on earth as it is in heaven for us. Isn't that awesome? Yes, He will do what He said what He said He would in your life and in my life. You have to be confident of that very thing -- that He began a good work in you and He's going to finish it. 

Paul was encouraging and praying for the people, because He knew the power of the Lord; he had a relationship with Him. So, yes he was confident and convinced of who God was (and who He is). And he was so thankful, that he wanted everybody to know it for themselves. Are you as confident as Paul was? Are you as convinced that God will do what He said He would do in your life? Are you continuously praying and working on your relationship with Him? Let me tell you, there's absolute power in that. We need not minimize it. Our salvation by God's grace is the reason to keep going. It allows us to pursue love, discernment (deep insight), and the glory of the Lord. We have reason to get up, to rise up, and to be more confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” God will finish what He started, because He's that awesome. Thank you Lord.

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
