Picture It

A few years ago I had a conversation with a guy about what he thought about his life. He told me something I hadn't ever heard before. He told me he didn't have goals, because he didn't think he would ever see them come true. Now this shocked me, because I thought everyone had goals. Growing up I always dreamt about lots of amazing things for my life. To me that was normal. I spent hours upon hours thinking about abundant extravagant dreams and visions. I would get lost in my imagination. It was endless and in my mind there was no doubt I would achieve them all. I was convinced I would do amazing astronomical things in this world. Even my mother thought I would. It's amazing how she knew, yet she did. Fast forward to a few years ago and I think that's why I used to give myself such a hard time, mostly at night. Perhaps that was why I was disappointed that I had not achieved more than I did. I considered myself a failure of my dreams until I had a few conversations with the Lord. He reminded me that He had not forgotten about me, but I had forgotten about Him. Thank God for His favor, grace and mercy and that His promises never come back void. He is still a forgiving God.

Consequently, we must put all our trust in God and not the devil, because he is a liar, a big one. And he wants to convince God's people that there's nothing for them. But let me tell you something. Rely on God and His word, then start speaking life over your life. Proverbs 30:6 says "he is a shield to those who take refuge in him." Start seeing yourself the way He sees you. Start seeing yourself successful and victorious. Start visualizing yourself doing that thing you always think about when you lay your head on that pillow. And when you read, start seeing yourself doing those magnificent things you read about. Somebody has to do them. Why can't it be you? It's never to late. Never.

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 …

The promise is still the promise

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. You know, sometimes in life just when it seems things are looking up, you turn around and boom, a step backwards. Just when you were starting to see a change, a shift, some forward motion, things slow down, almost to a standstill. Then you start to second guess yourself and question your moves to the point where it almost makes you want to just stop and not move at all. And you just about say, 'I'm done with all of this.' 
I know, because I've been there and sometimes I go there now. Yes, sometimes when I look at my progress, I say, 'dag Lord, why aren't I making more progress? Why does it seem I'm hardly making any headway?' And before I say another word, I think about Isaiah 40:29-31, which says: He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar hi…
