Push, It's Coming
The pain allows us to soar to new heights as we help others.
Sometimes when I think back to when I had my kids, I am reminded of the scripture in Genesis 3 when God tells Adam and Eve that women will bear much pain during childbirth. Whew, let me remind those who ever doubted the word of God, His word never lies. Just look around. There's proof all around you. You are proof yourself, because your mother had you and at some point during your birth there was pain. So either way you look at it, just think about how God is in everything. The bible is the truth y'all.
Our testimonies are further proof of its truth.
Childbirth was one of those times when I can for sure tell you about my testimony. I was in much pain. It was indescribable. When you're going through it you will typically say, "never again." And the people around you should get out of your face quick, fast and in a hurry, at best. Yes, it was that bad, it was a rough hard time. It was like it would never end. It was no joke, I'm telling you.
Then it's all over.
And when you see that miracle from God, all you can think about was how much it was worth it. You can't believe it. It's almost like an out of body experience when you just think about the amazement of God. It's one of those high spiritual moments. Only God can do that. How anyone can deny He exists really perplexes me.
We all feel pain. We have all felt pain. Your pain. My pain. It means something. God will use it for His glory, to show people who He is. So that means He has great things in store for those who believe. He doesn't want us to live in pain. He wants us to be better because of our pain. Why would He want us to believe in Him for nothing? Why would He not want goodness for us? Why would He want us to go through all of that and nothing good come of it? Then who would believe Him? Just think about that for a minute.
God makes sense.
I'm just glad I pushed. It was worth it. The rewards came. I'm better for it. The blessings were manifested. God's plan came to fruition. His promises were delivered. If I survived that, I can survive anything. So can you. We can make a difference. We can help people. Our pain for other peoples gain. None of it was for nothing.

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

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
