What's Your Why?

Do you know any of the answers?
Do you know your Why?

If you know your Why, you'll know your what, when, where, who, and how.

Why do we exist? What did God put us on the earth to do? When do we begin what it is He ordained us to do? Where exactly should it take place? Who is involved? How will it happen?

Those are all important questions that need to be answered in order to understand our Why

Once we know our Why, we can then proceed with the road map the Lord has given us to go forth and multiply. That means we will begin the work of our calling. Then and only then will we see the real manifestation of how God will use us to connect with people and help them. 

Part of figuring out that puzzle of our lives is what makes us cry, what bothers us, what makes us want to take a stand even if it means we won't be the most popular. I know for me that is to help suffering people, especially kids and other people who can't help themselves. When my mother was in the hospital I saw how she was half looked after by her pompous doctors. She had insurance, but I just think they saw her as an uninformed patient and treated her as such. Something rose inside of me when I saw their attitudes and their lack of quality care and treatment. I became an advocate for her and it didn't matter if anyone around me had a problem with that. When you're an advocate for people you don't care what others think about your fight. You just fight. 

You know your Why.

And when your Why is different than another person's there may be misunderstandings and confusion as to why you may feel a certain way and why they don't blink an eye. Don't let that bother you.

"Today" I know Why I was born. 

I was born and anointed:
"to proclaim good news to the poor (in spirit), to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the "prisoners", to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve..." (Isaiah 61:1-3)
My Why in a nutshell: To help the brokenhearted, because I know what it feels like to be broken.

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…

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 …
