Your Testimony is Important

2 Timothy 1:8 says, do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord. I wrote a blog post in August 21, 2014 about why it was important to share our testimony, our journey, our story about how God saved us from a sinful life of emptiness. And how we must tell others that when we have a life of Christ, we are full. It doesn't matter the challenges, setbacks, or heartaches we are experiencing or we've experienced, having the Lord in our lives adds comfort, healing, solace, power, love, peace, and whatever else we need at any given time. Jesus is there whenever we call on Him. It doesn't matter the time of the day, He is always awake. 

The following is just one story regarding a powerful testimony of God's goodness: Many people believed in Jesus because of one woman’s testimony. She was the Samaritan woman who spoke to Jesus at the well. She was what many would consider a hot mess, like many of us were at any given time in our lives, right? Maybe not you, but in a sense I definitely was BC (Before Christ). After her encounter with Jesus, her life changed. She wasn't the same person, so people thought 'wow if she can change. so can I.' After the people heard her miraculous testimony, they said, “we no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.” You can read more about her story in John 4:39-42. Don't be afraid to share your testimony. It can really help somebody.

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
