Heavy Weights

Ask God to help you lift that weight.
Sometimes in life we deal with heavy burdens.

Big issues, serious circumstances, dire situations.

Heavy weights.

What may be a heavy weight for one person may not be a heavy weight for the next person, but they can be confronting equal weight. That means we can't judge the way a person should act when they're going through things, because we don't know how they see that weight placed on them. We don't know their strength. We have no idea just by looking at them.

Only God knows that.

That also means that when we are dealing with a heavy weight, God will be with us, but we have to trust Him. I made mistakes in the past by having heavy burdens that I thought I had to handle on my own and I wasted valuable time. Today I have burdens that should weigh heavily on me, but I trust God and I am stronger in dealing with them.

I remember when I lost my twins. There were two women who talked about the fact that I was still grieving for them just a few short days after. They didn't realize that the weight was heavy for me and that it would take me a while to get through it. I didn't know God then, but I am convinced I got through it faster, because He gave me the natural strength to get through it. Now that I know Him I can tap into His supernatural1 strength which enables me to get through things with His miraculous power. I can do nothing in my own strength if the weight is too heavy. Yet I know I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.2

What I'm here to tell you is if that weight you're trying to carry is too heavy for you, why not ask God to help you? Why not ask Him to give you the strength to lift it and carry it? You will only carry it for a short time, because with God all things are possible and through Him that heavy weight will make us stronger. He will give us supernatural strength to deal with our burdens when we cast them on Him.3

But we have to ask Him to help us. Even if we have to ask Him all day long. 

Have you tried that?

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

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. 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.
