God is working for you

Would you agree that it's no surprise that people who exercise consistently are the ones who are in better shape than the ones who don't? And would you concur that it's also no surprise that we seldom see a sluggard person who stays with anything for any considerable amount of time? Why do you think that is? Does it remind you of a particular scripture perhaps? Namely, Proverbs 13:4, which says, "a sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied." Clearly, one has a purpose and is willing to work at it and one doesn't, right?

I believe you're more like the diligent one -- the one on the road of purpose. Notice how you read and listen to devotionals. I would even bet that you do much more than that. You're the one who is going to become one of the fittest, because you stayed the course. You showed up. You are running your race. Yes, you're the one who God knows is working at it and you're doing your best. You're the one who believes Romans 8:28 -- that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." 

As long as you see yourself in great and magnificent places, then you will get there. You know the purpose God has for you. And as Romans 8:28 says, God is working on your behalf, because you love Him and that means something to Him. And He's going to ensure your purpose is manifested. So keep working, keep trying different things, keep talking to different people, and keep going to different places. Something is bound to happen for you. I'm telling you, because God works for the good of those who love Him. It's as simple as that.

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

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
