Thankful for the "Little" Things

My family & close friends have always known I value the "little" things people do for people. 

Lots of little things become big things. They make an impact, they mean something, and they can even change lives for the better. Saying and doing positive "little" things for people is never overrated. We never know what others need in life and any good little thing can help. It can brighten our day and lift our spirits when we need it most.

That's how I felt after people took a few seconds out of their lives to type a few words of happiness, to dial 10 digits of joyfulness, and to drive a few miles of gladness. All to wish me well by saying loving words of kindness on a day I really needed it. 

Sometimes even the encourager needs encouraging. And even though I have most assuredly mastered the ability to encourage myself like David did (1 Samuel 30:6b), there's no doubt I need external support. We all do. We need the things we can't give ourselves. All of us need certain things from certain people, because we are not everything. One of the reasons the Lord put us on the earth was to fellowship and encourage each other. So I have no problem saying that just as certain people need me, I also need them. I wouldn't be who I am if it were not for the people God has placed in my life. Those people are on social media, in other parts of the world, and in person. It doesn't matter where they are, people are people, and we need each other.

Could you begin to imagine life without people? Without friends and family? Sometimes we say we wish we could just whiz through traffic without anyone else on the road, but we really don't want that. It would be a lonely existence. 

So, I wanted to take a moment via this blog post to say how thankful I am for you who are reading it and those who are reading it in the spirit. You may not know this, but you inspire me to be better. I appreciate your interest in who I am as a person. And I am thankful and grateful that God orchestrated it all for His glory and His honor.

Thank you so much.

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
