Goodbye Egypt (with podcast episode #13)



Do you have anything formidable facing you? Do you have anything that is coming at you full force and you don't know what to do about it? Are you confronting anything in your life that is the biggest challenge you ever encountered before? Well if any of those answers is a yes, I am coming to tell you that you can and will overcome anything you're facing. You can and will be able to say goodbye to Egypt, which can symbolize any obstacle, problem, or challenge you're facing today that is trying to stop what the Lord has for your life.

I know, because I saw the hand of God move in my life many times. And I know the power of the Lord is real. There was one time when I was close to losing my house. I had gotten behind on my mortgage and I had gotten a foreclosure letter in the mail with the date my house was going to be on the chopping block. In going back and forth in conversations and paperwork with the bank, it seemed nothing was working in my favor. I would send in the correct paperwork and the bank would oftentimes say they never received them. I could barely sleep. It was a pretty rough time for me. Then one time during the midnight hour something happened. I heard the voice of God. He said. "you will not lose your house." It was nothing scary. Just the opposite. It was a loving smooth voice. It was clear to me that it was the voice of God. Then a few months later I got a call from the bank with a woman on the other side of the line saying she had good news for me. She was so excited about what she was about to tell me, that I had to force myself to be excited for her. You see, I already knew what the Lord told me and I was expecting nothing less.

So, listen, there is no need to fear anything, anyone, or any place that's coming against you. The Lord says, "Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace” (Exodus 14:13-14). That means don't worry about Egypt. Egypt could be anyone, anything, or any place that has held you back or is trying to hold you back. The Lord your God is saying, fear not, I'm going to free you from that pesky, loathsome, evil Egypt. If that place is trying to stop your flow, I'm going to release the hold it's trying to put on you. I'm going to free you from that bond that is trying to stick to you, by that worthless place, because I have a land that is flowing with the greatness I've told you about; the place you've dreamed about; the people you've imagined, and the things you've had in your heart for a very long time. Yes, I'm going to give you a vast land flowing flowing flowing with much milk that will be nourishing to your body and abundant honey, which will be great for your soul. Oh yes you're in there. All that misery, pain, and bondage are now over. I am parting the Red Sea for you and there is nothing anybody can do to catch you. No need to even attempt to look back, because you will never see them again and they will never see you either. Your peace, your blessed dwelling place, and your time of harvest has finally come. I am the Lord God who has made it so for you. Thus, the Lord wants us to remember that and to remember Him also as we say goodbye for good, Egypt. Bye girl.

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

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

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
