Comfort to the weary

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.

“Comfort, comfort my people,” says your God" (Isaiah 40:1).

Did you know, God "gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak", as well? That's in Isaiah 40:29. Oh yes, and if he does that, that means there is no reason to be down or to stay down. God is saying to us that we need to lift our head up, God wants to comfort us -- His people. Yes, there are things going on that are challenging and it may seem like God is not there, it may seem like He doesn't hear us or see us. But let me tell you, God is here and He's there, and He's everywhere. God is aware of our needs, all of them and when it seems we're on the brink of shouting, "Lord help me!", He is right there. He was all along. 

Consequently, He won't ever leave the people who love, praise, and worship Him in spirit and in truth. Every last one of His promises will come true when we continue to seek Him in all our ways and as we continue to understand and respect that He is God of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. God is with us to support and comfort us and He is there for us to support others, as well. We have to keep that in mind and we have to know that God is real and He's never going to leave us, He's never going to forsake us, so comfort comfort my people says your God.

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

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
