The Word of God

Another meaning for the word of God is the bible.
"And he said: "Truly I tell you, unless you 
change and become like little children, 
you will never enter the kingdom of heaven" 
(Matthew 18:3/4)

Have you ever picked it up?

As you can surmise, my blog is based on the bible. That's the foundation for everything I write. I sometimes wonder what type of person reads my blog. Who are the people? What type of background? Who knows? It doesn't matter, because my main purpose is to encourage all people through a biblical framework. I want all of us to know God, to communicate with Him everyday, and to experience Him on an entirely different level. So considering that, I don't think I'll completely know who my audience is exactly and that is just fine with me. My goal is for all people from all walks of life, to see God.

One of the most important ways people can develop a relationship with God is through His word.

It offers so much insight.

Whatever you want to know, it's in there. Whatever you're going through, there will be somebody who went through it. Any and everything is in the bible. It's unlimited information, because it was written by God. It's a book that will never cease to amaze. If you don't pick it up that much or if you never have, you should give it a shot. You can start in Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament. How God created the earth is in there; or Matthew, the first book of the New Testament. The birth of Jesus is in that one; or Psalms, the book mostly of prayers, poems and hymns (songs); or Proverbs, the book mostly of wisdom; or you can just start anywhere depending on your specific concern at any given time. 

It doesn't matter where you start, reading God's word will change your life for the better and 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 joy. And I…

Encourage yourself in God

Do you know that no matter what you may be going through, you can encourage yourself in the Lord? And the Lord will give you the strength and power you need in order to get through? Yes, He will do it. He did it for David when David probably found it difficult to understand how he would endure. But, guess what? God was with him and God blessed him too. There are so many things I love about David. One of those things is that he encouraged himself in the Lord beyond the challenging circumstances he found himself in (1 Samuel 30:6).
When it seemed all was lost, David didn't give up. When everyone turned their backs on him, he stayed with his vision. When his family and community were taken, he went forth with what God told him to do. David never left the Lord in spite of his circumstances. I love that he did the opposite of what some of us would do, he stayed with God, he didn't run away from God. And he didn't try to take matters into his own hands. He ran towards the order…

Jesus gives mercy

"Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road."
Isn't that another great testimony about God's mercy? That story comes from Mark 10:46-52 and it's encouraging for a number of reasons. Namely, that Jesus had mercy on a …
