Never Thirsty

Some time ago I wrote a blog post about the living water Jesus gave to the Samaritan woman. The post was titled, Living Water and it was about the woman's encounter with Jesus. 

I want to remind you that Jesus will give you everything you need and some of what you want. He will see to it that you never have to become thirsty (or hungry for that matter) regarding anything you may need in your life. It's amazing to me how many people truly do not believe that. Throughout my conversations with people I'm surprised how many don't think Jesus will do what He said He would do. Jesus is a man of His word and if He said we would never thirst again, He means it.

The Samaritan woman is one instance of His power (John 4:1-45). The Samaritan woman is one instance of His love that gave her the confidence to know who she was in Christ. And guess what she did after her amazing encounter with Him? She opened her mouth and invited other Samaritans to encounter Him. That's what Christianity is all about. It's about doing all we can to ensure nobody else is thirsty like we once were. 

I have much respect for the Samaritan woman, because she wanted to help others. She didn't just take her knowledge and become mum about it. She used what the Lord blessed her with and she went forth with it. Who do you have around you who is thirsty? Feel free to tell them that there is eternal water that is available to them and their life will be changed forever, for the better, that they will never thirst again, because Jesus will be all they want and all they need. In John 4:13/14 Jesus said, whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.

That's what we can tell people who need an encounter with 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

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.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
