Just Wait

Ok I have a confession to make: Yesterday I didn't have faith as small as a mustard seed. 

There, I said it. 

I won't go into detail to protect the innocent, but I'll just say, I asked a friend to stand in for me, because I couldn't be at a certain place at a certain time. When the person didn't respond fast enough I got impatient and made other plans. Yet the person was making provisions to help me out, but by the time I found out the person could do it, it was too late. 

I should have just waited. 

Impatience has been a struggle for me for many years and from time to time it creeps back in, but nothing major though. Thank God I'm on my way to complete deliverance. Anyway, I'm just being transparent in telling you that I fell short (again) and although it won't be the last time, at least I'm ok talking about it. At one time I would have been uncomfortable with putting any part of my business out there, but that was then and this is now. Who the heck cares about that? I don't. As I grow older what I have learned (the hard way at times), is that it isn't about me or you for that matter. It's about the people we will touch by sharing our imperfect lives -- our miraculous testimonies -- our remarkable stories. That's what people resonate with and it helps us know we are just trying to get things right. It may be a long road, but we must keep on walking. We will get there.

So, yes I should have waited a little longer than I did, but you know what? The Lord still loves me in spite of myself. I'm so grateful for that. "Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples. For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord" (Psalm 117). He loves you 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

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

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 th
