Repair and restore

Just in case you may be wondering, Jesus can fix, heal, repair, restore, or reclaim anything that you are in need for Him to do. 

If He can do it for the blind beggar He passed by, He can surely do it for you and I. In Luke 18:41:43, Jesus asked the blind man what he wanted Jesus to do for him and the blind man said he wanted his sight recovered. And Jesus said to him, “recover your sight; your faith has made you well" and immediately he recovered his sight and the blind man followed Jesus. It was just that quick. The blind man didn't care who was around or what people were saying. He knew he needed Jesus of Nazareth. 

Now, what do you think it was that made the blind man call out to Jesus? Do you think it was simply because he was tired of being blind? Are you tired of anything? Do you think he wanted to be healed, so he figured, 'hey Jesus is passing by, this is my opportunity'? Have you seized on an opportunity lately? Do you think it had anything to do with his faith, in that he knew he had to take a chance and he took it? What would you have done?

Do you know our chances for anything we want fixed, healed, repaired, restored, or reclaimed, can in fact happen if our faith is big enough? Just like the blind man, we have to go for what's ours and we can't wait around for it to come to us. Whatever you want God to do, yes by all means keep praying and never stop, but also get up and call out to Him when He's passing through. He's always with us, yet He gives us opportunities to move, because He comes at opportune times and we know when He's speaking to us to move. He gave me some really great opportunities in the last couple of years and some I missed, because I didn't act fast enough or I didn't act at all. Some of those missed opportunities are still fresh in my mind, but I'm not bitter, I am better for it, because I learned the error of my ways. I don't want that to happen to me or anybody else again. I want us all to get what God has for us. I still need a few things in my life repaired and restored and I'm not missing another opportunity. I'm not letting another blessing fall by the wayside and don't you either.

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
