A Good Day

Yesterday was a good day.

We have good days and bad days, don't we? To say otherwise wouldn't be honest, so let's give God the glory when we have a good day (Psalm 96). I will do that in this blog post. 

I had lunch with two awesome friends of mine yesterday. The three of us have been great friends for about four years now and we get together a few times a year. We share life's ups and downs, highs and lows, joys and sorrows. As you can imagine, we had a lot to talk about. How about you? Do you have friends you can trust with the things on your heart? With the things that happened in your life? With the things you may need to talk about to get you to a better place in life?

For a long time I didn't have that. At least I didn't open myself up to it. Just in case you're new to my blog, part of my testimony is that I had trust issues, because of all the crap I took in my life. All the lies, the backstabbing, and the jealously. So I shielded myself to a certain extent and I wouldn't disclose too much of myself to people until they had proven themselves worthy to be trusted. Now things are different as you can tell from my blog. Now I put myself out there and I don't care if people talk about me, lie about me, and are filled with green-eyed jealously. That is not a problem I have anything to do with. It's their issue and they can contend with God about that. As for me, I have work to to do and a blog to write. Thankfully my blog helps people, because they can see themselves in another person who has gone through what they may be experiencing. And it's nice to know you're not alone when you're going through a storm.

That was the case today with one of my friends. She said my blog helped her get through a dark place in her life. She was going through a bad time and she found solace in my words -- God inspired words. That was one of the things that made it a good day. In fact, it was really a great day.

I hope your day was great 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 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 …
