Ask

...and you shall receive.

Yes, you shall get the desires of your heart when you ask the Lord for what you need. That's the spiritual part of it. Your chances of receiving what you want also increase dramatically when you ask for things in the natural. That means, we have a greater opportunity of getting closer to greater things when we open our mouths to God and to man. It's amazing how many of us don't use what we have to get what we want. Use your voice to ask. No, God is not a santa claus and no He's not a genie who performs when we rub the bottle. But He is a God, the God, who wants us to seek Him first. That's means uttering words to Him and being led by the holy spirit (that's another blog post though). 

The bottom line is that He's God. The one and only. Like no other can or will be. And He wants the best for us. His answer may not be yes, but it may not be no either. It simply may be, later. It may be that He wants us to trust Him even more as Ruler and Guider over our lives and is positioning us nicely for the great things He has for us. That may take us saying more and doing more. He doesn't want us to just accept the mediocre. Asking sometimes involves waiting, but we have to at least ask then wait on Him. He'll answer. Ruth got Boaz because she sacrificed and waited. Esther got the king because she sacrificed and waited. Rahab and her family were spared because she sacrificed and waited. 

So, it's quite simple really. Ask and if you're willing to sacrifice and wait, great things will come. I totally believe 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

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.

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
