You can still do what you've always wanted to do

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
This is for the people who wanted to do something for a long time, but haven't done it yet, because they think they've run out of time. You haven't run out of time, because you're still breathing. And even if you've missed opportunities, I believe even better opportunities will come your way. Time is still on your side, because when you're moving in God's timing He will still move in your life. No dream is ever over unless we think it's over. When we continue doing the smart hard work towards our goals, then victory and success will happen for us. But those of us who never start or stop because we think it's taking too long, are usually the ones who don't finish the race.  

*Some examples of not ever giving up and starting later in life are: 
  • Mommy Choi, Owner and Chef of Mommy Sauce who started the company at age 71
  • Martha Stewart, CEO, achieved astronomical success when she launched her magazine, Martha Stewart Living at age 41
  • Samuel Jackson, Actor, got a major acting role in the mega successful movie, Pulp Fiction when he was 46 years old (and in recovery from addiction to cocaine and heroin) 
So, it's not too late for you either. Don't let mistakes, setbacks, and missed opportunities discourage you. There's still time to achieve your goals. As I said, God doesn't operate in our timing. He's a supernatural God who does things that defy man's time and man's logic. 1 Timothy 1:17 says, God is an eternal God; that He exists forever. 

Whatever God has for you can still happen. Yes, you can still do what you've always wanted to do. Believe that.

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

Encourage yourself in God

Do you know that no matter what you may be going through, you can encourage yourself in the Lord? And the Lord will give you the strength and power you need in order to get through? Yes, He will do it. He did it for David when David probably found it difficult to understand how he would endure. But, guess what? God was with him and God blessed him too. There are so many things I love about David. One of those things is that he encouraged himself in the Lord beyond the challenging circumstances he found himself in ( 1 Samuel 30 :6). When it seemed all was lost, David didn't give up. When everyone turned their backs on him, he stayed with his vision. When his family and community were taken, he went forth with what God told him to do. David never left the Lord in spite of his circumstances. I love that he did the opposite of what some of us would do, he stayed with God, he didn't run away from God. And he didn't try to take matters into his own hands. He ran towards th

Jesus gives mercy

"Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road." Isn't that another great testimony about God's mercy? That story comes from  Mark 10:46-52  and it's encouraging for a number of reasons. Namely, that Jesus had mer
