Deep Digging

The Lord equips us with
the tools to go far.
Digging deep or deep digging. Same thing.

They both mean searching far and wide for what the Lord wants me to say, wants me to do.

I seek Him often. Why would I not?

I would rather follow Him then follow anyone else. He is wisdom at its finest. Thus, I seek first His kingdom1.

The trajectory of my life has changed recently and I go through the motions (moving steadily forward) and the emotions (running the gamut of my feelings). I get down sometimes, but you're starting to know me (a little) right? So, you know I don't stay there long. Forget that. Staying in my emotions will be a hindrance. We have to be careful with our emotions, because they can stop us from going forward. We must push through those difficult momentary feelings of fear, uncertainty, and doubt when we think God is not there. He's with us, He hasn't gone anywhere. He never will leave us2, remember? Yet we're human, we're fleshly beings, so we go there from time to time. All of us. Some people just don't admit it. But as we get stronger in the Lord we get more determined and focused that we can't stop, won't stop -- we"ll keep it moving upward and onward. That's the way substantial progress will be accomplished. We just can't live in our feelings, because looking back3 won't help a thing.

I'm not necessarily saying get over it, but get over it. 

This is what I mean: If I find myself thinking about the negative things that happened in my life, I move on quickly. To live there longer than a few minutes would render me helpless and thus, unhelpful to others. Then the devil wins. There's no way that's happening. The devil is a liar. Our stance should be, 'lil devil I ain't the one to come for, because I'm coming out swinging. Come for me and it's going to be a fight. I will not bow down to you.' Besides serving and pleasing the Lord by doing what He put me here to do, my other driving force is ensuring the devil doesn't win and that he doesn't try (operative word) to mess up anymore lives. Those are my fuel for writing, speaking, and doing anything else that will help others. I've come too far to turn back. I've seen God work. I've seen His miracles. I know His power. It's indisputable and it's been proven over and over again.

So I go to my power source, because I can do nothing in my own strength. God gives me the energy to show others His light. When His light shines it makes the world shine. Picture the sun, then picture the Son.


All of the digging deep is to connect and to bind with what He wants me to do to help people. My blog is a start and much more after that. We all have to dig deep if we want to tap into the deep things the Lord has for us. Going deep is not for the faint-hearted though. It's for the long-haul people. If you can't handle deep digging, then helping yourself and others will be non-existent. We can't half do this thing. Deep digging is necessary to get to the roots of the matters, it brings up valuable oil, it produces gold, diamonds, granite, and other priceless stones and minerals. If you don't think those are expensive, think again. Look at the price for any of them and you'll understand why. Suffice it say, we have to dig deep for the more valuable things of God. We have to go far in to get the worthwhile things that will improve our lives and improve others' lives. Digging is hard work. It's not a game. 

I'm doing it though and I believe you are too. Keep digging.

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

Protecting My Peace - Day 96 - Disciplining Ourselves for Next Level Greatness

Click to listen to today's podcast episode. When it comes to next level greatness, we have to know that applies to us, not just everyone else. Do you know what God has for you? Do you? He has GREATNESS for you. Yes, YOU -- all of us. It's about doing what you can do and only you can do. You are the only one with your DNA -- none of us. is the same Yet, even when we're feeling down, discouraged, and out, those emotions are only temporary. None of us has it all together. Sometimes I procrastinate and put things off when I know I should be doing better. Yet, I am not as diligent and disciplined as I can be sometimes. Like when it comes to working out, I delay it, because I don't like it anymore. And although I love reading the bible, I haven't been reading it as often as I should lately. Yes, I, Sharon, the Faith Coach, do not do the things I'm supposed to do when I'm supposed to do them. And that my dear friends should not come as a shock to no one. It certa
