Choose happy

Do you know we have a choice to be happy? Yes, we have the choice to have joyous happy days or sad unhappy ones. And we have the choice to be unbothered by the things that try to stop our flow. Isaiah 12:3 says "with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.” 

Remember, God looks after you -- His people -- and there is no need to put any effort into the things that don't make you stronger. We have to draw strength from within, Psalm 31:7 says "rejoice and be glad in the Lord God.” I had to learn that for myself, so now I write about it, I speak about it, and I teach about it. And like David, I will bless the Lord, because He has wondrously shown his steadfast love to me when I was in a bad place (Psalm 31:21). I know the power of the Lord and He has brought me from the pit of despair. Now I will be happy in Him. I trust in Him, because I know His majestic beauty. I value Him, because He has turned my ashes into beauty. He will do the same for all those who love Him and call Him Lord. He will do that all the days of their lives. God is worthy to be praised.

  1. Every day with the Lord is a day of strength. I withdraw from HIs happiness and His joy.

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
