I Love You

God's love is real and
it's around us all the time.
That's what the Lord says to us. 

"I love you."

Yes, He is telling us that no matter what we're up against; no matter the tide of the land right now; no matter what things seem like, He loves us.  All of us. It doesn't matter what we look like. Jesus is no respecter of persons, which means He doesn't show favoritism (He shows favor, but not favoritism). We are all His children.

God loves us. 

Sometimes people have a hard time with the concept that someone loves us that we can't see. Can we see air? Can we see the blood flowing through our veins? Can we see the world spinning? Can we see the frontal lobe of our brain thinking? Yet, all of it is crucial to our being and functioning. Without any of those things we cease to exist.  

That's how it is with God. He's omnipresent and so is His love. We can't see His love, but it is around us all the time. And when we tap into it we can feel it and sense it on an entirely different level. Although His love for us is obvious, ours for Him isn't. We can tap into His love though. All we have to do is ask Him out loud to come into our heart and ask Him out loud to forgive us for our mistakes (sins). Then we will experience Him like never before. I did it around 1999 and I was never the same. I was better, stronger, and faster than I've ever been. Life's struggles didn't elude me, but I was able to get through them more efficiently after He came into my life.

"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" ~Romans 10:9.

He loves us, because we are that special to Him.

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 …
