Striving for excellence

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.

God does everything in excellence, doesn't He? So we have a great and majestic role model. 

God is not at all a half-stepper. And He's not a man that lies, so when He does things He does things just as His word says, in order and perfectly. He operates in a way where people take notice. When God is in it, it is build like a rock. Yes He's God like that and His standards of excellence are the highest ever. And since we are children of the Most High, we have the ability (and responsibility) to do things as He would -- to the best of our ability. 

Yet, I have to start with myself and honestly and personally stating that, sometimes doing everything in order, is easier said than done. There was a time a couple of years ago when I just sat around and didn't move on my gifts. I was lazy and inconsistent. TV, radio, and the internet were my fake-friends and I didn't read on a normal schedule either. So it's no wonder I didn't really get any traction in obtaining all God had for me, right? And although I still have a long walk, I'm glad I am finally going forward and tapping into the Lord's best for me. There comes a time when we get sick and tired of being sick and tired. Today I'm tapping into the excellence He already has laid out for me. Today I have cracked through the standards set by God and I'm striving everyday. I thank God for His grace. I'm so appreciative of it and appreciative of a God who is an awesome God. "Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!" (Psalm 8:9). How about you? Do you have a relationship with the Lord? Are you walking in the plan of the Lord for your life? I certainly hope you're on that path and further along than I was, because I don't want anyone else wasting the time I did not moving. God wants excellence for us and it's time to start going for all He has planned for us, which is much.

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
