Cry Babies

If  you've ever read the biblical book of Judges you'll read some amazing things that went on back then. 

The Isaelites didn't listen to God. God dealt with them by turning them over to their enemies. Then they cry out to God. God relieves them of their pain by blessing them. They forget about God.  The same process happens over again and again. 

Haven't we been there done that, as well? Haven't we done the same things at some point in our lives? Oh no? Let's go down memory lane shall we? God tells us not to do something that we know is wrong. We know the consequences, but we don't care, because it's just too good to pass up. So we don't listen and the pain, trouble, issues, and circumstances present themselves and it's our fault. Then God helps us get out of it.

We must make lasting change or we'll end up being lifetime cry babies.

God is so awesome, isn't He? He loves His people. Yet we must not take His grace for granted. It could run out you know? I'm not saying we won't fall short. I'm just saying we have to make lasting change with the intent to do better the next time.

Then do better, because we are better.

Otherwise our mentality is that: we slipped out of that one. We're feeling good now -- real good, whew we got out of it. Then we forget about God. Then we turn around and boom, we're back to square one. The same trouble and issues are back and they're even worse this time. The process starts again. When are we going to learn? 

At some point we have to get off the Similac (baby milk product) and start drinking regular milk. For some of us it's overdue.

Would you agree?

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

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
