The blind will see

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.

Do you know there are some people walking around blind? Although they can see with their natural eyes, that's about where it stops. 

In the story with the blind man in John 9 when Jesus healed him from his blindness, the story actually has a deeper meaning besides just being a story of a miracle. Yes, it's a fact that Jesus makes the impossible, possible in order to show people who He is. That was His main purpose for healing the blind man. Yet, some people didn't believe Jesus healed him. They still doubted and continued to operate in their disbelieve. They even sent for the blind man and questioned he and his parents, only to still continue in their ignorance of Jesus. They ended up throwing the blind man in the streets when he didn't let up in telling them it was really Jesus who had healed him. When Jesus heard they had thrown him out, Jesus asked him if he believed in Him and the blind man said he did. In verses 39-41, "Jesus then said, “I came into the world to bring everything into the clear light of day, making all the distinctions clear, so that those who have never seen will see, and those who have made a great pretense of seeing will be exposed as blind.” Some Pharisees overheard him and said, “Does that mean you’re calling us blind?” Jesus said, “If you were really blind, you would be blameless, but since you claim to see everything so well, you’re accountable for every fault and failure.”

The point is, when we acknowledge Jesus for who He is and what He can do, then we can see clearly. We can see the light. And when we believe that He is the only true God of miracles and shining the light on dark places, then we can see the light. We will not walk around blind, we will walk around seeing all the things that God allows us the ability to see, which is abundant light.

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
