Peace Now

God is the God of Peace.
He wants that for everyone.
Some parts of life are happy, exhilarating, and deeply cheerful. 

And other parts, not so much. 

Most of the time I tend to focus on the former. Yet sometimes I get down, because I think of all the pain and heartache that people feel. It bothers me immensely when I think about it. But in order to continue on I must think about the Lord more; focus on the things of the Lord; keep my eyes set on Him. 

If I don't do that I'll overthink things; try to figure things out that are beyond my scope of rationale; try to come to sound conclusions even though it makes no sense for me to do so. Still, I find myself going there every now and then. 

I'm human. 

That's why I need God. 

He enables me to think realistically. He enables me to know that the pain and suffering still going on will be short-lived and temporary. He enables me to know that my part with Him reducing that pain in people, is huge. He enables me to have strength and reassurance in Him that He will do mighty things to help the hurting people. 

My heart still aches for them though. 

That's a part of my existence that will never go away. It can't, because if it ever goes away, then what? What mission do I have to help others? I must be driven by my "God-heart", because it lives in me to guide others towards the God of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. The God of peace. The God of light. The God of great.

Some parts of life are happy, exhilarating, and deeply cheerful. 

And other parts, not so much. 

Yet, our perfect Christ Jesus has a wonderful purpose for everyone and everything. It doesn't matter whether we can figure it out or not. 

His purpose is perfect peace for everyone. That's all I need to know until He tells me otherwise. Peace now.

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

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
