You ever feel lost? 

You ever feel like you don't know what direction to take? Like you're all alone? Like nobody understands where you are right now or the challenges you're faced with? I'm here to tell you that people may not know everything about your situation, but you're not alone. As my blog description says (above), almost everybody is going through something. Yet we must not grow weary and give up. If you're tired, I know the feeling. If you feel as though you're taking one step forward and two back, I know what that feels like too. But I refuse to give up. I refuse to let the devil win. 

Our next move may be the blessing we walk into. That can simply mean walking out our door and walking into something different. That can be the day the Lord God decides He's going to reward us even more than He already has by His presence, all because we stayed with Him when others walked away. How do we know what day, hour, or minute that will be? We don't, so we have to be in it (God) to win it (everything He has for us). 

That's what happened with a man named Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10). He wanted to change his life so much that he climbed a tree to get to Jesus. He did something different. And Jesus blessed him by visiting the man's house. He will do the same for you and I if we're willing to go out our way for Him. What tree are you willing to climb? Your tree may be different from mine, because we have our own situations and challenges. Yet, the one thing that stays constant is that Jesus is ready, able, and willing to visit us anytime we ask. Just like He did for Zacchaeus.

Just know that you're never alone and if you're feeling lost, it's never too late to be found. Jesus knows.

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…

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 …

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…
