America

America, the beautiful. 

She will always be beautiful to me. It doesn't matter what the past tells me, what the present shows me, and what the future holds for me. I will love my country to the end. I was born and raised here. That counts for many things. Namely, that it's my home. To deny my country because of what I see, is to deny the home town I was born and bred in. Just as the Lord will never leave or forsake me, I won't leave or forsake my home. 

America, the beautiful. 

It's stretching and busting at its seams now. The darkness is coming to light today. It will get worse before it gets better. And there will be great and lasting lessons learned. Such is life though. Don't we always come out on top when we're fighting the storm? It's difficult pushing our way through, yet we rise. And come out better and stronger. But to win, there can no longer exist a them and an us. In order to win, we can't leave anyone behind. 

America, the beautiful. 

I've decided that I will fight for it to stand strong. There is work to do and it's going to be hard work, but we must stay with it. The victory is worth it. We can never give up on America. This is our home. So if you're tired, the Lord will give you rest. If you're concerned, the Lord will settle you. If you're afraid, the Lord will comfort you. Go to Him and tell Him about it. Imagine the power in such a move if everybody did that. "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28).

Be encouraged -- encouraged in Jesus Christ -- to move mightily in the land, because He will.

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…

When you follow the light

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. "Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). 
I just want to encourage you to keep looking up, keep following the light, and to keep the plans God has for your life, front and centered. Continue to look up towards heaven no matter what you're going through. If you're not going through anything, then that's good, just continue to ensure your gaze is still on the Lord. No matter where we are in life we have to keep God as the center of our lives and not get too busy for the He, the Father. We must remember that what He did for us and the blood He shed for each one of us to be here today is something to be worthy, something to be praised, and something to appreciate and be grateful for.
Looking up ensures we are looking towards the light, because Jesus is the Light and He sits on high. That's a fact, so…
