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…

Encourage yourself in God

Do you know that no matter what you may be going through, you can encourage yourself in the Lord? And the Lord will give you the strength and power you need in order to get through? Yes, He will do it. He did it for David when David probably found it difficult to understand how he would endure. But, guess what? God was with him and God blessed him too. There are so many things I love about David. One of those things is that he encouraged himself in the Lord beyond the challenging circumstances he found himself in (1 Samuel 30:6).
When it seemed all was lost, David didn't give up. When everyone turned their backs on him, he stayed with his vision. When his family and community were taken, he went forth with what God told him to do. David never left the Lord in spite of his circumstances. I love that he did the opposite of what some of us would do, he stayed with God, he didn't run away from God. And he didn't try to take matters into his own hands. He ran towards the order…

When you follow the light

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. "Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). 
I just want to encourage you to keep looking up, keep following the light, and to keep the plans God has for your life, front and centered. Continue to look up towards heaven no matter what you're going through. If you're not going through anything, then that's good, just continue to ensure your gaze is still on the Lord. No matter where we are in life we have to keep God as the center of our lives and not get too busy for the He, the Father. We must remember that what He did for us and the blood He shed for each one of us to be here today is something to be worthy, something to be praised, and something to appreciate and be grateful for.
Looking up ensures we are looking towards the light, because Jesus is the Light and He sits on high. That's a fact, so…
