Happy

Smile and be happy because
Jesus really does love you.
Do you know that happiness is a choice?

Yep, it's true.

I've had things I've done that brought hurt and pain to my life and I've had others who did things that brought hurt and pain to my life. That hurt and pain lives with me daily, but I will not let it defeat me. I'm going to keep on blogging, keep on publishing eBooks, keep speaking, and keep going forward to do the things the Lord would have me to do to help others.

My life mission has changed as of late and although some things are more difficult, I accept my life. It's a life in which I have to become less and the Lord becomes more. That's just the way it is for anyone the Lord God is going to use. "Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" (Isaiah 6:8). 

Unlike Isaiah, I didn't quite asked to be sent (used), but to be useful to myself and others I have chosen to accept the call on my life. I made a choice to push through, I made a choice to be healthy, and I made a choice to be happy. 

That's the only way I will be able to prove to people that God is not a man that He shall lie. His word always comes back full not void. That people who have faith in Him will come out on top. And that He is a rewarder of the people who diligently seek Him. All of this means I will be able to do all He said I would do to help people through their life journey. That's right, nothing that has happened was by accident, God knew it before, He's aware of how everything is progressing, and He's directing the final outcome.

All is and will be well. 

So, yes we all have something to be happy about. The Lord requires nothing less. He wants you to be happy.

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 …
