We Can Do Everything

I often talk about the Lord blessing us when we do everything we're supposed to do. 

Yet, I want to be clear about something. When I say, "everything", I use that term loosely (in the natural), because there is no way we will always do everything right. Every last one of us is going to fall short. None of us is going to get everything perfect. But what we can do is strive to do everything well, in the power the Lord will have us to do them in. In 1 Kings 11:38, the Lord told Solomon "and if you will listen to all that I command you, and will walk in my ways, and do what is right in my eyes by keeping my statutes and my commandments, as David my servant did, I will be with you and will build you a sure house, as I built for David, and I will give Israel to you." 

Thus, if we want to be used and are willing to work at living a life of God, then He can work with that. What I mean is that God is not going to use a hot mess of a person who doesn't want to get things right and who has no desire to help others, to do His will. What I believe He will do though, is work with a hot mess of a person who is at least striving to be a work in progress, who has the right heart motives, and who goes to Him honestly and earnestly with their shortcomings. That's what He did with so many people in the bible -- Adam, Eve, Abraham, Sarah, David, Joseph, Jonah, Esther, Paul, the list goes on. All of them were flawed people who were able to do their "everything" in the Lord. 

Everything connotes having a heart for God.

So forgive me if I say "everything" too much, because doing everything right all the time is impossible. Yet, when a Godly everything (faith/trust) lives in our heart, it is not impossible to do everything (anything) through Christ (Philippians 4:13). And those are the people God will use to do, be, and go to mighty places. It's the people who know they are nothing without God that God will use and exalt, because those are the people with the most humble, meek, and obedient hearts. 

And that's what I mean by doing everything we're supposed to be doing.You understand? photo ISH Signature_zps7zfuxzga.png

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
