A Made-up Mind

I'm serious. I'm ready. It's time.
When I look at the people who lost a boatload of weight, I admire them.

That's why I love watching the Biggest Loser.

Although I don't watch much TV, whenever I can catch that show I'm all in.  The fact that the contestants even made it on that show is an admirable feat. And the fact that they open themselves up to our critique, analysis, and opinion, is amazing, as well. We can be a hard sell, can't we? And we have alot of nerve too, don't we? Could we do what they were brave enough to do? I doubt if I would open myself up to that type of judgment. Then again, maybe I could once I got to the point where I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. Or perhaps I would if just maybe I had enough of the same old mundane existence.

Everyone has their threshold of enough.

There comes a time where you just put it all out there and what anybody says about you, is their problem, not yours. You get to the point where you simply couldn't care less.

You've decided.

You're going in full throttle and your new attitude is, let's go.

It's a feeling of rejuvenation and freedom when you start doing what you know you were born to do. It's almost as though God is saying, about time. The point is, those gifts He placed in you will not fail you, because God is a God of successes and perfection. And if He placed it in us, then it's impossible to fail at being who He created us to be and thus, do what He created us to do. So that settles it.

We are now "newer" creations in Christ with made-up minds. Like those Biggest Losers Winners, we are changed people and we are now ready to tell the world about it. We are stepping out. And now I hear it. Do you hear it? I hear God saying, well done good and faithful servant, well done.

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…

When you follow the light

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. "Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). 
I just want to encourage you to keep looking up, keep following the light, and to keep the plans God has for your life, front and centered. Continue to look up towards heaven no matter what you're going through. If you're not going through anything, then that's good, just continue to ensure your gaze is still on the Lord. No matter where we are in life we have to keep God as the center of our lives and not get too busy for the He, the Father. We must remember that what He did for us and the blood He shed for each one of us to be here today is something to be worthy, something to be praised, and something to appreciate and be grateful for.
Looking up ensures we are looking towards the light, because Jesus is the Light and He sits on high. That's a fact, so…
