The diligent ones

Do you know God wants the very best for you and not the crumbs? Are you the one many call diligent (a hard worker), or can you use a little help in that area? 

Proverbs 13:4 says, "a sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied." What that verse means is that lazy doesn't cut it, but hard work does. If I can be honest, I have been both. I have been a sluggard (a lazy person) and I have been diligent. And I can say without a doubt that being diligent has paid off in my life. If we're not willing to work hard to get what God has for us, then more than likely, things will go by the wayside and that will be the process that plays out in our lives. God has more for all of us. He knows what lives in our heart, so don't lose hope that you can't get what's yours -- what already has your name on it. Know that God knows what we need and He will help us get there. We just have to play our part in the natural and He takes care of the supernatural.

Remember how the Lord rained down manna for the Israelites in Exodus 16? He can do the same today. With diligence, you can get that dream job you've been waiting for. With diligence, you can get that dream house you've visualized yourself living in. With diligence, you can get that dream spouse you think about often. It's not elusive to you or I, we can get it. With diligence we can all get there. Proverbs 6:4 says,"commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans." Nothing worthwhile will come without hard work and sacrifice. And nothing will come to the lazy, I know that by experience. It's about establishing and cultivating a relationship with God for Him to order our steps towards getting what He has for us. That's one of the main ways we will be able to help others get all that God has for them, as well. It's about helping people and advancing the kingdom of God. My point is that we have to be blessed to be a blessing and that takes being diligent.

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

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
