Hardwork University

When we move, God moves.

Hardwork (aka Smart Work): there's no way around this ladies and gentlemen. Why? Because faith without works is dead (James 2:14-16). We have to put some elbow grease behind our words, behind scripture. Yes, speaking it is great, but there must be more that comes with it. Hebrews 11:1 says that faith is the assurance of things we want to happen that we have not seen yet. In other words if we "see" it and believe it, then the proof will be in the actions we put behind those words. It's about writing the vision we have for ourselves -- what God placed inside of us and running with it (Habakkuk 2:2). Consequently, we have to put action behind what we want to happen in our lives or our words are just empty, worthless, cheap talk. 

I have much respect for the people who are at least trying to move mountains and cross over valleys, of course, with God doing the heavy lifting. We have to continue to try and not just sit around wishing and hoping that things will change. That's not faith and nothing is going to just drop in our lives by accident or osmosis. Everyone I know who is successful in their given areas, put lots of hard work behind that success and none of it happened overnight. Thus, Hardwork University is about making things happen, so make them happen. You have it in you.

Jesus Will Protect You

God is the ultimate protector. It gets no better than that.

So just in case you may be thinking even for one minute, that they're limits on God, I'm coming to tell you there's not. He's the infinite God. He never runs out of resources and ways to help you and to cover you. He will protect you against the people, places, and things that are trying to do you harm or dirty. He sees what's happening in the darkness and He brings it to the light. He uncovers every wicked scheme planned or plotted against you. You need not worry about that. You see, when God is going to use you, which is the case for everyone who wants the be used, then He will put a hedge of protection around you, and you and your off-spring will be untouchable. It doesn't matter how strong your foes are, nothing is stronger than God and His plans for your life. 

So, don't get down, don't grow weary, and don't you dare give up, God is out in front of you and on each side of you in protective mode. And with Him protecting you and supporting you, who can go against you (Romans 8:31)? Not one single person, place, or thing. Zilch, noda, zero, nothing.

To add more encouragement, I would like to introduce my avatar to you. Her name is Sha Sha and she's pretty fierce. Check out what she has to say:
 
God will protect you.

Promised Delivered

"For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you” (Genesis 28:15b). That's what the Lord told Jacob in an amazing dream. God told Jacob that he and his descendants were blessed. That means you're blessed if you are in the line of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, which means you're in the blood line of God. Which also means God will keep the promises He made to his descendents. I don't know about you, but that's me for sure, thank you very much. I receive everything the Lord is blessing me with, because I know they will be the things that will allow great fruit to fall. That is indeed a blessing.

So, receive the awesome words of God when He promises what He will do. And know that if we can become as Abraham, who obeyed God's voice and kept His charge, commandments, statutes, and  laws, then we too will see the hand of God in our lives. I believe God's promises. He will deliver, because He always does what He said He would do. Take Him at His word.

Use It or Lose It

Do you know you're gifted? Yes, you have at least one special gift the Lord has blessed you with and He wants you to use it to be a blessing to people. It doesn't matter how small you think that gift is. In God's eyes it's huge, because He made it in you. He birthed it in you. Remember this: we were all made in His image (Genesis 1:26/27) before the sin/fall of man. Yet and still, wouldn't it make perfect sense that we were perfectly crafted to do something amazing in this world just as Jesus did? No, of course there is only one Jesus, yet we can function with His power that lives in us. But that's only if He lives in us. It's a free choice each of us has in order to fully function in our gifting in order to help others fulfill their purpose on earth. That's one instance of being fruitful and multiplying. 

What I'm trying to convey here is that we must use the gift(s) God has given us or somebody else will. Why? Well, the short answer is easy. It's because God's will, will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10). 

I hope you will be the one who does what was birth in you to do.

You'll Get There

Sometimes it's easy to get frustrated that certain things aren't happening fast enough, but we can't throw in the towel. God is aware that we want certain things manifested in our lives. Yet timing is crucial. I know that more today than ever. There were some things I tried to rush, but God doesn't rush anything simply because we want things yesterday. We can't become so desperate for things that we start going out of the will of God. We want to go forward not backwards, so things must move in God's order. He moves in His time and His timetable, which is nothing like ours. So stay encouraged and don't give up what you want. If it glorifies God, if eyeballs shift to Him, if you decrease as He increases (John 3:30) then there you go. I believe it will most assuredly happen for you. 

You'll get there. Keep moving.

Follow Your Peace

When it comes to your life you have to listen to yourself. I'm not saying not to listen to wisdom from the people who care about you. Apply wisdom where it fits. What this means is not doing things you're uncomfortable with when deep down inside you know better. Recently I made a mistake I think about often. This mistake could have been avoided. When I think over the entire situation, I think about what went right and what went wrong. What went right: I ran some things by a trusted individual and got their feedback. What went wrong: I didn't listen to my inner self and the outcome didn't work for me. In fact I think it set me back a little. Was the person wrong for giving me their opinion? Of course not. I trusted their judgement. But I was wrong for thinking that what would work for them would work for me even though I wasn't at peace with it. Big mistake that won't happen again.

No big deal. I'm not dwelling on it. Lesson learned.

Bottom line: don't do anything that you're not at peace with even if it comes from a wise trusting caring person. Don't rush God. What He has for you will come when it's supposed to. "I will listen to what God the Lord says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants— but let them not turn to folly" (Psalm 85:8).

Follow your peace.

A Child is Born

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6).

I often write about how God is awesome in power and how His spirit still looms over the universe. That's because every day we have to be resolute in knowing this. Every day we need reminders of His glory. Every day we need reminders of His love. Otherwise life will get us distracted and we can easily forget. This blog is committed to respecting God as our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. It's a blessing for those who call Him those things and acknowledge His greatness. Maximize the fact that the child, Jesus, was born for us. Give Him thanks every day.

The Throne

Yes, that's right. According to Psalm 9:4, the Lord still sits on the throne. He is the one true God and He gives righteous judgement to all who go against Him. He looks after His own and He will proceed according to His word. The former is enough to strike healthy fear in me, I don't know about you. I'm so glad I am a child of God. I hope and pray you are, as well. His spirit still hovers over the earth. He is still alive. He has risen. 

To live with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords is a honor that I believe every single person should experience. God is real, ok? Please know that. Whatever you are in need of, He's here. If you want a solid life, His throne is accessible. Anyone can walk to it and He will receive them in love. He accepts prayer. He forgives with no questions asked. And He receives our petitions when we utter that we want to live with Him and for Him. 

Yes, He's that majestic. The one and only truly living God. It's a blessing to know Him.

Giants Fall

Many of us know the great story of David and Goliath, don't we? It was the story in 1 Samuel 17 when David confronted his giant, Goliath. It was the story in which David didn't back down to a problem he saw that was bigger than him -- bigger than the people around him. David fought back against what ailed and pained him. He went forward, because he knew to where his strength came and he called upon it. These were some of David's powerful words against his giant problem: “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied" (1 Samuel 17:45). David pulled from the power of God and God moved miraculously through him. Amazing.

There's a clear lesson here as we can see. It's simply that we too, must be willing to stand against anything in our lives we see as giants. That can be a person, place, or a tangible (touchable) or intangible thing. We too, can be as David and go forth, not flee from our challenges like all the others before David. If we want different we have to be the ones who do different. That's going to be one of the major factors in making our giants run from us or be taken out all together. We have the choice of the outcome.

We must make the choice to use the power of God that dwells in us. And God will move through us as He did with David. That's not a problem for God. Nothing is.

God's Key Fits

God will give us the key to fit any door in which He tells us to walk through. When we are faithful to His word and we are doing our part to fulfill what He has for our lives, He gives us tools to go forth and multiply. As we continue to pray and do the hard work of staying committed to Him, doors will eventually open. We can never give up what He wants to do through us. People can benefit from what we have to offer. Our life means something. Let God use you to help others through what you've been through. I'm telling you, it was part of the great plan over your life. You are going to make a big impact. I hope you believe that.

What key has God given to you to be influential in the world? Whatever it is, do you know you can bust right through that door with that key? It doesn't matter what anyone has told you about the key fitting. Look, if God ordained you to go through any door, no one can stop what He has for your life. Use the key He gave you, walk through, and trust and believe that it will fit nicely. Then He will give you another key that will fit through the next door and so on and so forth. It never ends.

All things are possible with God, because He can open doors no person can shut when we follow and meditate on His instructions (Psalm 1:2).

Keep Seeking, Keep Serving

Keep seeking and serving the Lord whether people get you or not -- whether people understand you or they don't. Even if you have to yell, "I will bless the Lord at all times and his praise shall continually be in my mouth!" (Psalm 34:1), do it over and over again. And whatever you do, don't move from your post and position of God. Let Him shut the mouths of the lions, while we play our positions.

I know for a fact that there are some people who think I'm straight up weird simply because I don't do the things they do. They think I should have certain people in my life and they don't understand why I don't. They think I should be involved in this and that and they don't understand why I don't indulge. I won't ever indulge. It doesn't matter how long they wallow in their confusion about me.  Let them wallow.

What I'm starting to realize more and more, is that some people just don't understand who I am. They don't get that my reliance is on God moving and shifting things on my behalf, not Sharon trying to move and shift them. My life is so much better that way. So, if people want to think a certain way about the servants of the Lord, let them. You have to be willing to stand for God. Those who choose to put Him first are the ones who He gets -- who He understands. And when that's the case, man's opinion doesn't matter one iota. 

This is just a reminder to keep seeking God no matter what comes your way and don't worry about man's view of you (Matthew 6:25-33). Keep serving Him whether people get you or not. God will ensure they will one day understand. In the meantime, keep being you and stand strong.

God is present

When God is for you, who can be against you? (Romans 8:31). When you're with God, who can be against you? God is our protection and our great father. He will be there always and forever. He is our present help (Psalm 46:1). "He says, “Be still, and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10).

Seek Him often and He will faithfully guide, heal, speak, give you peace, and anything else you are in need of. He can be counted in at all times. He's always present, because He is the  Lord Almighty who is with us; the God of Jacob who is our fortress (Psalm 46:11).

I pray those words were a comfort for you today that God is with you.

Visualization

Do you have a vision for your life or do you just go with whatever the flavor of the day is? Do you just flow with whatever comes your way? I ask you this, because we all have a vision. We all have a purpose. For this blog post I'm using vision and purpose interchangeably.

We must know why we're here or we are just walking the earth with no real direction. We think we're going somewhere and we're not. I went to an event yesterday with up and coming female entrepreneurs. The event organizer was a female empowering the women who supported her vision. The women were vendors selling their product, establishing relationships, and many female customers came to support the vision of the event organizer. They showed up. I loved it. I bet each person there had a vision of their own too.

Proverbs 29:18 says that without a vision, the people perish. Live your vision and support another's.

Covered with Favor

"For you bless the righteous, oh Lord; you cover him with favor as with a shield (Psalm 5:12). Notice that scripture says "the righteous." That means the ones who are in Christ. Who know Him as their personal Lord and Savior. Who know He's the reason for all seasons. Who have a relationship with Him. Yes, they are the ones with favor over their lives as shields. Now, whether they yield it or not, is another issue. 

Some saints simply do not know to whom we really belong. Although we are saved, some of us don't know the real power we possess by way of that salvation. As a result we hardly exercise it. When challenging circumstances come, we don't believe Psalm 5:12. We believe man -- people. We call upon the name of family and friends with zero supernatural power and nothing happens. That shouldn't be a surprise. 

Psalm 5:12 is written in the bible to remind us that we have God covering our lives. We can and must walk in that power and use it to advance God's kingdom. That means challenging situations are temporary, because we all have work to do and we must be whole in order to do it. 

Use your favored-covered power to get some things done in this world, because it's already done in heaven.

Pushing Through, Despite It All

There are many people who achieve great things in life, yet little do people know, the pain they live with from day to day, is intense. Pain of loss, pain of regret (yes some people still admit that there are things they regret), pain of experiences they've suffered in their lives. You may be asking how it is that they are able to function to such great heights if such intense pain lives inside them. Well, for starters, they are driven by their pain. They live with it to help others know that they too, can and will get through it. Their entire mission in life is to get others to see the greatness of God that can dwell inside them in spite of the pain. Their entire mission is to get through to people that God will comfort them always. They tuck their pain inside themselves in order to reach others and another person's joy brings them joy. They realize that if it were not for their pain, others wouldn't gain as much. They realize that somebody had to live it and somebody has to give it. They have accepted the mandate from God. 

And with the Lord on their side, He gives them the strength and love to make it each and every day in order to help one more person know that whatever they're going through shall pass. He gives them the strength to tell another person that surely God is their help and He is the one who sustains them (Psalm 54:4).

That's what makes them get up in the morning. They see another and another that they can tell about the Lord's sustaining power and that He too, will sustain them forever and ever.

Amen.

Social Media, the Good, the Bad, the Ugly

Social media -- the good, the bad, and the ugly. There are some things on social media that are true, real, genuine, authentic. And there are some things that aren't. Most of the time we show the good, but not the bad and not the ugly. There's not anything necessarily wrong with that, because some things are not encouraging or anybody's business. So here's the deal then: we can't continue comparing ourselves to people, places, and things when we have no idea what's  real or fake. Actually it really doesn't matter whether any of it is even real or fake, comparison is a cousin of the green-eyed monster, jealousy, with envy in equal place. So, don't even waste your time trying to keep up with any of it. It will eat at your soul. Just stay in your lane and realize that what we see is mostly the good, but the bad and the ugly lurks within.

Consequently, don't let social media get the best of you. People don't show their true colors and I get it. Why would people do that in front of many people they don't really know and who don't know them? Isn't that all the reason not to get all swept away with what we think we see? Trust and believe, there's always more to an image.

Consequently, don't compare yourself to man. If you're going to compare yourself to anybody, compare yourself to God. He's the real deal. Genesis 1:2b says His spirit moved upon the face of the waters when He created the heaven and the earth. That's real right there -- the good -- what you see with God is definitely what you will get.

You Win Some, You Lose Some

You can't let mistakes or bad decisions stop you from moving forward. We're all going to make them from time to time. It doesn't matter how old we are, how seasoned we are, how experienced we are, how wealthy we are, how popular we are, how attractive we are, or how spiritual we are. We are going to make mistakes and make choices that we should have thought more wisely about. At some point, we are going to fall short, we are going to have setbacks, we are going to have challenges, and we are going to have struggles. We are not God. Yes we were made in His image, thank God, but we are fleshly humans who are going to drop the ball at any given time. It's inevitable. You best believe that. Yet here's the thing: you can't let it stop you from going to the next level. You have to regroup, recalculate, learn from the mistake and continue the climb. 

I made a mistake recently and it cost me someone I wanted to connect with. I thought I was doing what God wanted me to do. I thought I was following the words of God's prophet, so I went out of my comfort zone and I made some moves that didn't pay off. I went out of character and it didn't pan out in my favor. You know what I have to say about all of that? "Oh well, moving right along, next." It's not going to stop me. I know the promises of the Lord. Would I do it again? At first I said I wouldn't, but as long as it's following what thus says the Lord, I would indeed do it again. You see, in order to move from our position, we have to do things that don't always make sense to us. If we win some, awesome and if we lose some, awesome. God is never wrong and although it may not make sense in the natural, it makes sense to God. In Genesis 22:1-19, remember when God told Abraham to slaughter his son Isaac? God was testing Abraham, he was obedient, and was blessed because of it. He trusted God even if it meant he had to do something he didn't want to do.

Listen to God, not man and don't let nothing stop you. Stay committed, because as long as God told you to do it, you never really lose anyway.

Unmovable

Being unmovable means standing your ground no matter the circumstances that surround you.

No matter what I am confronted with, I will not let anything defeat me. I've come too far and the Lord has promised me too much for that. What are you facing today? You can get through it. There is no doubt about it. When I was faced with mountains, the first thing I did was to seek God -- talk to God -- pray to God, then I was able to get the strategies I needed to get over them. You see, God wants us to trust Him when we are dealing with the difficult things in life. 

Just recently I made the mistake of trying to make things happen in my business. God had told me through a prophet what I needed to do and I was obedient. I did everything I was supposed to do even though I felt a bit uncomfortable. I even felt embarrassed especially since I never got the outcome/response I wanted. So, where did that leave me? Down at first, but never out. I am so over it. Look, I did my part. Now God has to do His. I gave it my all and I now rest my case with the Lord.

My point? Don't let anything shake you or move you from the position that God has you in. If you are already moving full steam ahead (although if you're like me, it sometimes doesn't seem to be the case, because the steam appears to be at a standstill), by all means, continue moving. God will take care of the rest. Why? Well, that's simple. Because, "God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19).

God will do it. It may look different than we think, but as long as we remain faithful He will do it.

Keep going and going and going...

Keep going and going and going... 

Translation: God has much for you, so continue to roll. You know why I write so much about continuing to grind and never giving up on what the Lord has for you? One major reason is, some years ago someone tried to block me from leaving a position. It wasn't because I was doing anything wrong. Just the opposite, I was doing things right. This has happened numerous times in my life. My philosophy has always been to work smart/hard, mind my business, and display professionalism. Simple. Well, guess what? After all those attempts to block progress and growth, God had other plans. He opened other awesome doors and I walked through. So yes I'm serious when I say that what God has for you, is for you. I know that first hand in many areas of my life, I'm telling you. So you must continue to go go go for what it is God has for you. His vision for your life should be clear. If not, seek Him out to find it. Matthew 6:33 says to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all the things He has for you will be added to you.

Nobody can block you. Keep going.

God Looks after His Anointed

"So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt” (Genesis 41:41).  

Wherever it is you want God to take you, He will. If it's a palace or your equivalent to it, then so be it. But let me tell you this: it won't come easy. Oh no. You're going to have to go through some things to get there. God doesn't just reward, going through the motions, or doing things here and there, or not proving perseverance, determination, stamina, and intense training with Him. If that were the case He would reward the ones who don't trust or believe in Him to fulfill His promises. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry would be getting blessed to big places for no reason and the first thing they would do is give themselves the glory. You think God works like that? Please.

Take Joseph for instance, left for dead by his jealous evil brothers. Yet God had something better for Joseph and Joseph proved himself worthy of getting it. He went through hell and he stayed with God during the entire process. He ended up, literally, in the Pharaoh's palace. The same man who did him dirty (Genesis 39) just as his brothers did. But look at this, in Genesis 50:20 he told his brothers, "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives." After everything he went through, Joseph ended up being the second man in charge of the kingdom and was put in a position to help many others, including his brothers. Look at that.

Won't God do it? Don't think for one minute that He won't look after His anointed.

I Run to God

"I run to you, God; I run for dear life" (Psalm 31:1). Those were David's words. Sometimes I feel like he did. For, I do run to God.

I run to my Lord when I need Him. I run to Him when I think I got this. I run to Him any and every time I need to. He is my comfort, my safety net, my landing place, my everything. Yes I run to Him. I need Him. What would my life be without Him? I hate to imagine. Where would I go? Who would I commune with? How would I function? Nobody else can take His place. He is my rock. My strong tower. My breath.

I run to God. And I pray you do the same. "Love God, all you saints [and others who want to draw near to Him]; God takes care of all who stay close to him" ( Psalm 31:23).

Stay Encouraged

Stay encouraged even if you have to encourage yourself. Flakey people come and go. Wish-washy people are here today and gone tomorrow. On-the-fence type people don't know which side they want to jump off and if they'll even jump at all. You can't always depend on people, because people fall short. If you say or do anything wrong, it's possible they're gone forever. That's people, right? Yet we can't let that get us down. We have to stay encouraged and continue on. We have to love one another despite our flaws and imperfections. We can't stop loving and supporting each other.

But, God. Thank God He is stable and we know what we're getting with Him everyday. He never changes. He's the same, yesterday, today, and tomorrow (Hebrews 13:8). He won't flake on us. He's consistent and He loves us the same. 

Be encouraged in knowing that.

The Grinders

Where are all the grinders? Will all the grinders please stand up!

Unfortunately they're not many since the laborers are few, but the harvest is plentiful (Matthew 9:35-38). That's what Jesus told the disciples when He was moved by the people -- the lost souls, who were treated harshly and were helpless. That means that they were probably homeless, having a difficult time, mistreated, and underestimated by many people who came in contact with them. That was unacceptable to Jesus and it should be to us too. Where are all the grinders? The laborers? Are you with Jesus? He's wondering.

Jesus wants grinders, but not only as it pertains to handling our business -- the entrepreneurs. He wants us to ensure that on our way to our destination we continuously think about the people we will encounter. For starters, grinding ain't easy. Working in those fields is not a joke. I'm going to tell you that right now. And thinking about others and doing for others even when we're inconvenienced, is not a game either. Yet it must be done. 

So, I ask you again, where are all the grinders? The laborers? There's a plentiful harvest to be gotten. Are you willing to do whatever it takes to get it? If so, let's do this and "therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers [grinders] into his harvest” (Matthew 9:38).

Keep Growing

Shout out to all the people who aren't afraid to be different! Don't go back to that place where you were accepted for doing the wrong things. You're going to go far with the new people you're around and the new places you're going. You're not missing nothing. Trust and believe that.

You've changed for the better. You know you've changed when you can walk away from the nonsense you used to engage in, when you're ok with not being around the garbage you used to be around, and when you're just fine with not fitting in with the people who haven't grown one inch or moved on from crazy thinking and crazy actions.

I commend everybody who is where God wants them to be even if it means being looked at as different. Don't feel bad, because you are different. And you're much better for it. You are a new creation in Christ. Embrace that and be reminded that, "if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!" (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Keep going. Keep growing.

Keep Faith Alive

If God is in it, you're going to have faith to get there, that's for sure. It won't come easy, but that's ok, because we don't want it to be easy. Anybody can do easy. Easy come, easy go. We want it to be worth our while, because there's so much more in the appreciation of it when we had to use sweat and muscle to get there. We may not know exactly how God will do what He said He would do, but let me tell you, He's going to do it. There's no doubt about that. So don't give up, don't give in. It doesn't matter how many people think you won't succeed, you must continue going. The question is, what did God say about the matter? That's what's most important. In the mealtime, continue to knock on the doors you think He's set before you and if they close, it wasn't God.

Keep faith in action, because faith is the confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1). 

Keep faith alive.
