God gives us energy

According to Google, energy means: "the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity." Did you know God gives us the energy we need to do what He called us to do? He hasn't forgotten we can't do everything on our own and we certainly shouldn't forget that either. We need God. And He loves helping us, because He loves us so. His spirit is always alive. He never sleeps. Isn't that a blessing? He's there 24/7.

Even when we think we can go on no more, here comes our super hero, God. He's always there when we need Him, isn't He? He never leaves us or forsakes us. If we're feeling listless and unmotivated, God gives us just what we need to continue on. Getting that burst of energy that comes right when we need it, is like a runner's high. After a runner has been running for awhile and should be ready to give up, they get a second wind. They have a new and fresh burst of energy. I used to be an avid runner, so I know the experience and it's real. So you see, there's no need to ever give up on what God has for you. If you're tired, it's ok. It's allowed. Yet know this: "There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears" Philippians 1:6. 

That means whatever God placed in you to do, will get done. It's about letting our faith (and works) carry us all the way and never stopping. Remember, the God of the possible makes all things available to us that we need not worry. We get constant bursts of energy whenever we call upon the Lord of lords to help us. Isn't that amazing? It's the God working in us to continue on. Philippians 2:13 says, "that energy is God's energy, an energy deep within you, God himself willing and working at what will give him the most pleasure." God knows what we need and when we need it.

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

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
