The calm

I watched a video recently of a flood. During the flood, on one side of a bridge, the waters were coming down hard, crashing into trees, and wreaking havoc on all that was around it. And on the other side of the bridge, the waters were calm. There was virtually no movement whatsoever. The waters were quiet and still as though nothing was going on around it. It was an amazing thing to watch. One the one hand, chaos, turmoil, and uncertainty were happening. And on the other hand, peace, order, and calmness were happening. 

Do you see the dichotomy here? Which one are you? I remember being the former, just a few years back when a flood would come and I didn't always handle things with the faith and trust I needed. I sometimes moved too fast and messed things up, because I wasn't confident in what the Lord told me. Which were are you? Today I can assuredly say that I am more mature in my faith and when a flood comes I know how to stand still and know that God is God. Yes, today I am much more sure in who I am in Christ and although the floods will come, I can remain still until it's time to move in the timing the Lord would have me to move in. I may not know everything to do, but I know how to trust in Him now and that has given me so much more confidence in my decisions. 

Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” That scripture is one of many that gives me the strength to remain calm no matter what comes my way. It's something we can all stand on despite our circumstances.

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

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

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.
