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…

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 …
