A godly and biblically-based devotional to help people with their faith and confidence; to encourage, educate, and inform. Come everyday for inspiration. Almost everybody is going through something and you can get through it with Jesus. I am a witness to that fact. Never give up on the great blessings God already has lined up for you. Jeremiah 29:11 says, 'He knows the plans He has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'

In sports, one of the more famous acronyms is, GOAT.
It stands for the Greatest of All Time. We can think of several worthy athletes who have earned such a distinction besides their names. Players like Lebron James, Serena Williams, Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali, Wayne Gretzky, Cristiano Ronaldo, and the list goes on.
But what is it that made those athletes so great, they stood out among their peers?
At a minimum I think most of us would agree that they have (or had) a great work ethic, they eat right, they get proper sleep, they don't smoke or drink (not the serious ones), and they have a champion-mindset in that they don't stop even when they want to give up or even when it hurts. Thus, they have remarkable perseverance, endurance, stamina, and strength.
Although they are extraordinarily talented and are champions at its finest, none of them is the true and real GOAT.
Yes, I said it.
There is only one man who reigns above them all. There is only one man who was, is, and always will be the Greatest of All Time. His name is Jesus. He did what none of those athletes will ever do. He died for us. He took all of our sinsand He took the punishment for us. So, now when we make mistakes and a whole host of other errors of our ways, we don't have to die for them (it was like that at one point in history). Jesus ensures we still live. We are already forgiven.
So clearly, there is only one GOAT who has ever lived and will continue to live for eternity. While I applaud the many tremendous accomplishments of those athletes, none of them can do that.
Jesus Christ is the one and only. Today we are saved by His grace. Thank God.

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

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.

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
