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.'

Sometimes we think we need lots of people to help us fight our giants in order to go to the next level in what God has for us.
But don't you know God will weed out the people will think we need, to get His will done? And He will have us do an impossible feat with one or a few people when it should take many. That's what He did for Gideon (Judges 6-7). Gideon was the 5th judge in the bible back when judges were God's chosen leaders in charge of the people (Israelites). Gideon was also a prophet and a mighty warrior. God chose him to lead the people in their fight against the Midianites. At first Gideon was doubtful that he should be the chosen one to lead the Israelites, but an angel of God told him he would be ok and the Lord would be with him. To make a longer story short, Gideon's army started with 32 thousand men and the Lord dwindled that number down to 300.
To fight again a massive Midianite army.
Who were as vast as locusts.
Who had too many camels to count.
An army clearly more powerful and more well-equipped than Gideon's army. It was truly an uphill impossible battle for Gideon's 300...in the natural scheme of things, that is.
Yet God is a supernatural God who makes things happen so much so that people will shake their heads in disbelief as they say, "what?" "huh?" "how did that happen?" He will defy reason and make things happen for us that men said could, should, and would never happen and He'll do it so everyone will know without a doubt it was Him.
So when you're feeling down and when you're feeling that thing you've been praying for can't and won't happen, hold your head up then look up towards heaven and be reminded that if God did it before, He'll do it again and again.
And you won't need every Tom, Dick, and Harry with you either.

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

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
