God will provide

Have you ever heard the story of God raining down food from heaven? I mean literally, food fell from the sky. Let me tell you what happened.

It was in Exodus 16 where the Israelites found themselves hungry, uncomfortable, irritable, and actually...ungrateful for all that God had done for them. While in the wilderness, they grumbled and complained to Moses, their leader. And Moses prayed to God on their behalf. They were wandering in the wilderness, the desert, on their way to Canaan. Canaan was the land the Lord had promised them. It was a land that was far better than where they had come from. They had been in bondage in Egypt -- enslaved for many years and the Lord performed countless miracles that allowed them to escape their wretched, miserable, hopeless existence. And now they found themselves in the wilderness and they continued to complain and grumble, yet the Lord was still with them. He provided food from heaven for them (called manna), over and over again, which sustained them. Isn't that like the Lord? He will just provide for us, because He loves us that much. Remember, He will never leave us or forsake us.

What are you in need of? What is your need? What are you hungry for? Don't you know that God will provide it for you too? That story of Moses and the Isrealites doesn't just stop there. It's a miracle from God that can also happen in our lives at any time. Whatever you're in need of, no need complaining, no need grumbling, no need for any of that. That may prolong the blessing. All it takes is a humble and grateful attitude of praise and worship, and the Lord will also answer your need when you take your petitions (prayers) to Him. He will provide.

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
