Yes, the Lord is pleased with me, that I know

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Once upon a time I didn't think the Lord was pleased with me. You see, I had made some mistakes. I had dropped the ball. And I had made some stupid decisions. I wasn't feeling too hot about myself either at that time, because I had disappointed even myself and I eventually forgave myself. I had too. So, I was wrong about God. He was still pleased with me even though I made mistakes, even though I dropped the ball, and even though I made some stupid decisions. I know that, because God has made me fearfully and wonderfully. Yes, Psalm 139:14 is proof of that. And I know it. I know it also because Romans 8:1 tells me there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. So, yes the Lord is pleased with me, that I know.

Do you realize He is also pleased with you? He is. Yes, I'm here to tell you that. I am here to tell you He is pleased with you, as well. He is pleased with the people who made mistakes, who dropped the ball, and who made some bad decisions. If that describes you too, well we're in the same boat and He has some great things in store for you and for me. So we are going to continue to feel good about ourselves no matter what happened or didn't happen. Yes, the Lord is pleased with me, that I know. We have to continuously say that over our lives...forever.

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

He has GREATNESS for you. Yes, YOU -- all of us. It's about doing what you can do and only you can do. You are the only one with your DNA -- none of us. is the same Yet, even when we're feeling down, discouraged, and out, those emotions are only temporary. None of us has it all together. Sometimes I procrastinate and put things off when I know I should be doing better. Yet, I am not as diligent and disciplined as I can be sometimes. Like when it comes to working out, I delay it, because I don't like it anymore. And although I love reading the bible, I haven't been reading it as often as I should lately. Yes, I, Sharon, the Faith Coach, do not do the things I'm supposed to do when I'm supposed to do them. And that my dear friends should not come as a shock to no one. It certa
