Stay with Positive

"Do not fret [worry] because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong" (Psalm 37:1). 

Translation? You're not missing anything not being a part of the "hip cool" crowd. Trust and believe that. All that matters is that you position yourself around the people with a vision who live for the Lord. They are the ones who will become more in life, because they will be able to possess natural and supernatural power. Now, that's power. Consequently, it doesn't matter if things seem boring or ordinary, because you can best believe there is much movement behind the scenes. And you can best believe that God is going to show people how it's done through your life. You have been serving Him and serving Him some more. Don't think any of it has been in vain. God honors those who honor Him. As I say often in many of my blog posts, serving and honoring God doesn't mean everything will go perfectly, because we will still have our challenges. Yet I do believe challenges make us stronger within ourselves and most importantly, stronger in God who will be with us the entire time. That's a fact. 

I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever" (Psalm 86:12). 

So stay with the strong and positive people who are leading with Christ. And continue to watch and monitor carefully, who you let in your space. Stay around good, not evil. You will be better for it -- we all will be better for it -- there's no doubt about that. Staying with positive means staying with God, which means having leverage and longevity. Stay with positive.

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 …
