Love & (Building Your) Ministry

You are so loved! Oh! How He loves us!


God’s love for us is unconditional. Incomprehensible! Never ending! It goes deeper than the deepest, darkest, unknown parts of the ocean. Higher than Mt. Everest. As far as the east is from the west. Stronger than the mightiest winds in the whirling galaxies that He created! And it burns hotter than the sun! It’s just unfathomable!

I was reading in Hosea last week and then again tonight and THIS (Hosea 11:8) stuck out to me so much!


I just can’t give up on you. I can’t let you go. My feelings for you are much too strong.

THIS is soooo how I feel about my amazing hubby.

And you know what, that’s how God feels about you! Times 7982567392644891279074638355273753819374259927!

It’s so easy to feel unworthy of His love. We are sinners, that’s a known fact. But at the very same time, when we decided to give our lives to Christ, we became saints. No, you don’t have to be dead for several years, or well known around the world. Through Christ, we are made saints! Created in God’s holy Image. Just think about how Paul addressed His letters in the New Testament.

A sinless Man, dying for my sin. I am so unworthy. But, He tells me that I’m worthy! Isn’t that crazy-amazing?!

God’s love for me just fills me with so much JOY! Typing this out right now, my heart is overwhelmed by His mighty love and presence!

It is the BEST feeling! My heart could literally BURST right now! Wow, God, You amaze me so much!

Sometimes God may seem distant. But He is right by our side, full of love, every second of every minute of every hour, each day!

I long for a deeper relationship with my King! To get to know Him better. To share His love for me with others. To tell anyone who will listen, all about Him! And encourage the entire the world to do the same.

I long to be wholly His in every sense of the word! I want to sing for You, Jesus. Speak as You would, Jesus. Breathe for You. Wake up for You. Go to sleep for You. Have constant fellowship with You throughout the day. Read and study about You everyday until you call me home! Share Your brilliancy with the entire world! Be a walking testimony of Your goodness!

And every time I get another glimpse of Your heart, I realize it’s true that You are so marvelous God! And I’m just so in love with You!

Now how could I after knowing One so great respond to You in any way that’s less than all I have to give?

But by Your grace I wanna love You not with what I say but everyday in away that my life is lived!

I’m at a point in my life that I never thought I’d never reach, after one of the hardest times of my life, losing my angel baby almost two years ago. And that’s: being crazy in love with my Savior! How GREAT is our God?! Sing with me! 😉

Your ministry begins at home, and your community.

You don’t have to take a 16 hour flight to share the Gospel, although is that’s what you’re called to do, do it! And do it well! (1 Corinthians 10:31)

Social media can be horrible at times, but at the same time, it’s amazing. It’s a platform to share the Gospel, reaching hundreds, thousands and even millions of people around God’s beautiful earth!

The way we treat our spouses, bring up our children, interact with others and live is our ministry (and faith!).

Sharing what God has laid on our heart and mind. Teaching others. Loving others. Being of service to others. Encouraging others. That’s where ministry begins. (I definitely plan to share more on this topic in the future!)

Our world needs an extensive amount of healing.

I encourage anyone who’s reading this to share the greatness that is Him! Simply by starting within your self, your home, community and with the push of a button (i.e., social media platforms)! When we experience His love, we are never the same again! Now, imagine if the entire world longed for Jesus?! Imagine the praises and joy that would happen in Heaven!

You may say that I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one!

The Bible tells us that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10-11)

Oh! What a mighty, GLORIOUS Day that will be!!!

This post was supposed to be something totally different, but I’m just so overwhelmed by His Spirit! God’s presence with me right SO confirms my dream to lead others to Him through a very special project!

Listen to the Lord (!!!): Matthew 28:19-20 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Glory be to God in heaven,
peace to those who love you well;
on the earth let all your people
speak your grace, your wonders tell:
Lord, we praise you for your glory,
mighty Father, heaven’s king;
hear our joyful adoration
and accept the thanks we bring.

xo, Shar
