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…

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 …
