Still Winning

Always winning with the Lord.
Won.

Winning.

Going to win again.
  
Past, present, future. It doesn't matter what happened. It doesn't matter what is happening now. And it doesn't matter what will happen. God is in control and He's ordering our steps. When we follow Him, He ensures our steps are made perfect. It's when we get off course that we mess things up. 

There is only one way to win and that is with God on our side. He can defeat the things we can't. So, yes I'm still winning and so are you I hope. You know why I'm so sure of that for myself? Because all the hell I had in my life; all the pain I have endured; all the pain others have endured, are the fuel that makes my fire burn. As traumatic and sorrowful as some of my life was and as challenging as some of my present circumstances are, I know God is making ways out of no ways. He's turning what the devil did to His people, around for His glory.

That gives me solace and hope for a future for God's hurting people. Do you know you will hurt no more? Do you realize that God hears your cries? He knows your pain. He is aware of what happened and why it happened. He has not left you to be in a dire state. He has a plan. None of us can always figure it out though. We just have to live (fully) in knowing there are some things we will never know the reason for.

There is only one God. 

Thankfully.

Why does He allow certain events? I don't know, I really have no idea. All I know is that we can all win as He directs our lives. And when we allow Him in our lives (it's a choice), watch how He turns things around to help us make meaning out of life. That, I'm confident He will do.

So yes I'm winning simply, because of my faith in the Most High (Psalms 91). Faith-speak is what I keep speaking to myself no matter what my reality is.

You want to win? 

Go to God, speak faith, and do what He says. Then you can say, "winning" and mean it too.

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 …
