Waves of Goodness

One of the many awesome things of God is that He gives us waves of His goodness. 

He's not a respector of persons, which means He will use anyone He chooses to do His will. Just when it seems we're down to nothing, God is always up to something. He is always with us during the highs and lows of life. That's why we can never give up. It doesn't matter our past or present circumstances, God is in control.

I know an R&B singer who is famous. And although she grew up in the church, she and her mother wanted her to go the R&B route (no judgement there). They grinded and hit that pavement for years and nothing was happening for her. After much discouragement and rejection she was just about to give up on her dream of getting a record deal. They had done just about all they could and things weren't working out for her. Then finally a record deal came through. They were ecstatic, but only for a moment. A few short weeks later the record label had changed their mind about her, because they didn't think she was the right fit. As you could imagine, they were devastated. They had hit rock bottom. They were done and at that point she didn't want anything else to do with music. She decided to do something else like go to college or something. Yet music was her first love and she wasn't willing to walk away. Some time later there was another opportunity to get a record deal and she and her mother went for it. She had made up her mind that if that door opened it was a sign to keep going and if it didn't her life would take another turn. Well, things worked out and if I told you her name, you'd recognize it and her music. As of this writing she's still working in music and television, and her net worth is roughly 20 million dollars. 

My point? God can make anything happen for anyone at anytime. It doesn't matter who and what. Only He knows the plans He has for each one of us. Remember the Samaritan Woman in John 4? Who are we to judge how God's plan looks and how God will have us impact people? His waves of goodness can happen to anyone at anytime.

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…

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 …
