Despair to Repair

God is in the restoration business
and He will give us the tools for strength.
I know what intense pain feels like and I know what trusting in the Lord feels like too.

My pain is leading to more faith (trust) in God, which is leading to freedom and peace, which is strengthening me to help others. God is turning my pain into another's gain. And what the devil meant for evil, God is turning it around.

This is what He did for Joseph when those Joseph loved turned their backs on him. Yes yes yall, God turned Joseph's despair into repair. Then Joseph went on to become mighty in the world. He didn't despise his small/humble beginnings, which were necessary for growth. Why? Because God uses those who society rejects, the misfits, the lost, the ostracized, the cast-asides, the judged. God loves making ways out of no ways and making the ordinary into the extraordinary. He did (and does) it time after time after time.

I'm happy God is a merciful, favorable, graceful, honorable, all-of-that God. I couldn't exist without Him. Nobody could. Thus, this is the time to "proclaim the year of the LORD's favor, and the day of our God's vengeance; to comfort all who mourn" (Isaiah 61:2), because God hasn't forgotten about his hurting people and they will hurt no more.

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

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

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
