Stay with God

This is a poem I wrote 2 weeks ago, around 5am. It took me about 30 minutes to write it. That same week I recited it to music at an evening church service dedicated to encouraging women.

Stay With God

I have a message for you, yes, you, you & you
Why? Cuz I've gone through it too 

My life was hard just a few months ago
At first I didn't know where to go

Then I thought hold up, God
Go to Him 'cuz things are hard

So that's what I did, that's what I do 
And I know some of you are going through it too

But don't give up, there's more for your life
God will fix it, the pain, the hurt, the strife

He's here for you & will never leave
But, we must seek Him first, you & me

My life was in turmoil y'all, the pain, it was bad
It was hard to function, anger, fear, just sad

But I knew God & I ran to Him
Then light grew bright, no more darkness, no more dim

The Lord said I'm here, girl you are blessed
I'll show you who I am, clean you up, clean up your mess

He's the Lord like that
From day one He had my back

He did it y'all, that's why I'm here
I've come to tell you, there's no need to fear

God says He sees you, your star is bright
He knows what happened & He is your light 

His light shines for all to see
To show them all who you will be

You are no accident, you're here for a reason
Stay with God, this is your season

You went through hell to go to a new level
So this is what you say, that's all you got devil?

God is real, accept the testing
Stay with Him & you'll see the blessing 

God is love, that's why He loves you
You were no mistake, He wants to use you

Stay with God

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 joy. And I…

The promise is still the promise

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. You know, sometimes in life just when it seems things are looking up, you turn around and boom, a step backwards. Just when you were starting to see a change, a shift, some forward motion, things slow down, almost to a standstill. Then you start to second guess yourself and question your moves to the point where it almost makes you want to just stop and not move at all. And you just about say, 'I'm done with all of this.' 
I know, because I've been there and sometimes I go there now. Yes, sometimes when I look at my progress, I say, 'dag Lord, why aren't I making more progress? Why does it seem I'm hardly making any headway?' And before I say another word, I think about Isaiah 40:29-31, which says: He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar hi…

Jesus gives mercy

"Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road."
Isn't that another great testimony about God's mercy? That story comes from Mark 10:46-52 and it's encouraging for a number of reasons. Namely, that Jesus had mercy on a …
