Gone Fishing

"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people" (Matthew 4:19).

That's what Jesus said when he called His disciples to follow Him and some of them literally dropped their nets and followed Him. What do you think it meant when Jesus asked them to drop what they were doing, follow Him, and He would make them fishers of men? 

Do you think he meant take men to go fishing in the lake? Of course not. It meant those men, like all of us today, can and should use what we have to get people to Jesus; to cast our nets to get people to see the light that they're missing out on. 

Yesterday I heard Christine Caine speak and she was amazing. One of her gifts is, going after the bad guys regarding human trafficking and her other gift is inspirational speaking. Caine is doing what she was born to do to make fishers of men. She's helping people and she's spreading the word of God to empower people to do likewise. We can all do our part to get people to Jesus the way we do it. As for myself, how am I making fishers of men? My inspirational writing, blogging, ebooks, and social media are some ways I inspire broken and hurt people to see and follow Jesus and they in turn can do the same. How about you? What's your gift? How are you empowering and resonating with people to see Jesus?

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

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.
