God has a will for our lives when we surrender all to Him

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Do you know God has a will for our lives? Yes, it's really true. He has a will for our lives when we surrender all to Him. So when we make a decision to surrender all we have -- to surrender our will to Him, then God honors that. Only we know what that means though. Only we know what's in our lives that God has been dealing with us on. Only we know that person, place, or thing we need to lose in order to find ourselves. That something stays with us until we surrender -- until we really give it to God -- until we can really let Him have our right to "own" it. We give it to Him to own it. When we give that up then God will take it over and He will be the one who will take care of it on our behalf. 

There are some things in life that are just too big for us. There are some things that are just too huge for us to take on. So why not just surrender it? Why not just give it to God? Listen, if we're tempted by anything; if we're tempted to do anything that we know will not do us any good, then we can say to God, "God help me in this area, help me, I can't do it alone, I need you God, and I need your help." That's what surrendering to the Lord looks like. Is it easy? No, it really isn't, yet that doesn't mean we can't overcome challenges in our lives. That doesn't mean to can't live a full life of surrender and that doesn't mean we have to have everything we want. We don't have to have everything, because don't you know, everything isn't good for us? 

The bottom line is this: God wants us to trust Him, because He is willing to guide and lead us into the abundance and greatness that awaits us. Do you believe that? I believe it. Isaiah 41:10 says, "fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." YesIt's all about trusting God with no strings attached, because God has a will for our lives when we surrender all to Him.

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
