Stay Focused

Let nobody and no thing
take you out of focus.
Do you know that there are some people who just won't like you?

Even though you did absolutely nothing wrong.

But you must stay focused. Don't veer off from the positive road you're on. That's what the enemy wants you to do, get sidetracked. Don't let it happen. It doesn't matter what is said and done against you. We can't get all bent out of shape because some people don't wish us well. There are just some things that are the way they are and not much we can do about them.  

Focus is the key.

There are just some people who will simply dislike you, hate you, and down right despise you for the simple fact that you exist. It's hard for some people to fathom that, because it seams so far fetched, but let me tell you something, if you refuse to believe it because it seems so unbelievable, get over that. With all due respect, get your head out of the sand. That's just the way things are. God sees it though. He sees everything that's said and done against you. And you have nothing to worry about as long as you keep your eyes on Him. You know why? Because the people who are against you are the same people who are talking you right into your blessing. And their actions are getting you closer and closer to what God has for you.

Continue to focus.

Do you remember the biblical story of Haman and Mordecai? Haman hated Mordecai so much that he built gallows to have Mordecai hung. But when the king realized that Mordecai had previously saved his life, the king asked Haman what should be done for Mordecai. Yet Haman was so much into himself that he thought the king was talking about him, so he told the king to do all these great things. What Haman didn't realize was that he was actually blessing Mordecai. It's a great reminder of how God turns the evil plots against His people around for good. 

Just be reminded that 'what people think about us is none of our business' (I think Maya Angelou gets credit for that quote). In the meantime all we can do is stay on our A-game, stay on our grind, and stay focused on what God is having us to do. Then let Him take care of the rest.

Other than that, it's all good.

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 …
