Thankful, Grateful, Blessed

Sometimes I wonder how many of us really realize how blessed we are to be so loved by God. We really are blessed. And what else comes with that love is the love we can have for each other. In other words, not to exist with hate, which doesn't come from God. When we are thankful, grateful, and blessed we should be in a loving posture. In fact how can all those things exist in a person who does not love? Quite impossible, wouldn't you say?

When I think over my life I know there were many situations when God gave me favor, grace, and mercy -- many times -- and I didn't really deserve any of it. Now, that's love. So why would I not operate in that same love? Why not thank God for the many things He does for us like giving us life and enabling us to wake up to the magnificent world He created for us? No, it's not a perfect world, far from it, but it has much magnificence, because the Lord made it. So I will continue to look at the splendor of it all as I'm reminded yet again to be thankful and grateful, because I am truly blessed. As I sit here and write this, I am confident of that very thing. Sometimes I simply thank Him out loud as I walk around the house, in my car, or anywhere else. My life is not always easy, but I thank God for being a part of it.

It's a blessing to be able to do what He called us to do. It doesn't matter that we aren't able to do everything and it doesn't matter how small we think it is. It's just awesome to be called and chosen to do whatever it is we're going to do in His timing. This blog is a part of that and I'm going to continue to blog no matter how many people read it. Thus, it's about being appreciative of all God is doing for us. It's about the love God has for us. I hope everyone gets to know that for themselves. Check out 1 John 4, it speaks to God's love and our love for each other. 

Hear what Sha Sha has to say about being thankful, grateful and blessed by God. Sha Sha is my avatar, so her face is based on my face and the voice you hear is actually me speaking through her.

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 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
