[NEW BLOG] Hello friends! I hope you’ve enjoyed the blogs this February on loving others when it's not easy. This week, my friend @mrschegardner shares about how to love intentionally, "I loved people at this church outreach, that food drive, or on a mission trip. I would love them at youth group. But, when I was in a hurry at the grocery store or late for basketball practice, I was not equally loving to those people.
The reality of all the times I failed to love “every human being” as if they were Jesus rocked my world. But, I am committed to never giving up. So here are 5 tips that helped me SEE every person as valuable as Jesus Himself." Read the rest by following the Link in profile. #LoveDifferently
Most of the time my time with Jesus involves reading the word in my mind, writing it so it has time to sit there for awhile and then journaling about what it means to me. #gettigthewordinme #keepingtimewithGodsimple
Keep your eyes peeled for another great blog on sharieking.com on how to #LoveDifferently tomorrow. @mrschegardner will be sharing about how to love the everyday person. You don't want to miss it!!
I'm so proud of how Jesus is using @clayton_king to be a voice in our #fearless series @newspring_church Marriage brings up so many emotions. Some feel happiness and joy, while others may feel pain and regret, and still other have a mix of all of these jumbled up.
My favorite thing he explained: Those of us who are married are pairs of imperfect people trying to represent a picture of Christ to the world. When a man and wife do this as a team, we stop fighting for me and transition into "we". The "we" in marriage shows the world the He behind the "we". In other words, a thriving marriage points to Jesus. So our goal is to make margin in our marriages to serve our spouse as Christ serves us!!
My highest score to date..197!! #teamking4115
Look at these yummie pillows
How many pillows do I use? One. How many pillows does @clayton_king use? All the rest. #fearless #teamking4115
Friends. I just read part of a chapter of a book I'm writing to my husband. He said, "Sharie I'm so proud of you. This is going to be so good." Big smile and whole heart.
The writing process has been long (I'm talking 5-6 years long), but the concepts and chapters are all starting to become unified and complete. This is dream is becoming real and tangible after a lot of hard work, frustration, rejection, reworking, and starting over...but I know it will all be worth it. I can't give you any hints except the picture above might be part of the cover. 😳 please pray for me as I continue this journey. #finishwell #dreamscomefromhardwork
Because it's throwback Thursday and this boy's 7 year old mean face is just too cute. #tbt❤️
I have the privilege of sharing a short word from my friend @nandityi on my [NEW BLOG].
"These are the experiences I have as a black woman and as a child of immigrants. The stereotypes and racial profiling I deal with on a daily basis are unfair and painful. This is the way God made me—and I love my skin—yet it offends and scares people.
How do I navigate the pain and tears, let go, forgive and hope? I have come to the conclusion that I can’t do it alone. I need others to bring out my story, and join me on this journey. So where can we start?"
Nandi talks about how we can do this together on my blog...link in profile.
Praying for you, my friend @hollyhmyers as you spark this morning Gardner-Webb University. #ckmspeaker
