The Lost and Found

God hasn't forgotten about us. We must believe that.
Once upon a time.

There was a time when we trusted in the promises of God. There was a time when we believed in the promises of God. There was a time when we had faith that God would do all He said He would do. Due to our faith we were obedient. Due to our obedience we were blessed. And due to being blessed, we were a blessing. We had influence. We had power. People looked up to us. We made a difference.

Not anymore though.

Things have changed. God's people are unlike ever before. Now, they are trying to be like everybody else. There is nothing special about the nations. The anointing (and the appointing) has left. The people aren't looking towards heaven anymore. Their countenance has changed -- looking down now -- towards Sheol. Today, the people are more like Samson with his locks cut off. Once a powerful man of God. But let life get the best of him, gave his power away, and then the Lord left him. Where are my people?

The Lord is asking.

It saddens me, because I saw the Samson anointing on you. I bet you didn't know that, did you? Probably not, because you were busy being used by God. You were busy building the kingdom. But that was then and this is now. That anointing has left you like it did with Samson and Saul too. So now you are rendered ineffective, because you gave up. You let that life beating you got, keep you down. The 12th round wasn't even over yet and you threw in the towel.

Why?

Why don't you trust God anymore? Why have you slid back? Why do you look back? Why do you desire to return to that time? God showed you Canaan. You were right there and you didn't believe it was yours to possess. Oh you of little faith.

My heart breaks.

Now the Lord is hurting. He wants to use you again. But you are not yourself. You have a hard time looking in the mirror, because it is not you, you see. You don't look right trying to be something you're not -- trying to fit in. You don't fool me and you for sure, don't fool God. When are you going to stop this racket? It doesn't fit you. You're running, but there is nowhere to go.

But, God.

He is waiting. He will give you everything back. It's not too late to trust Him again; to believe Him again. There are many of His promises stored up. Yes, they are still there for you. He sees you and He's waiting. It's not too late. 

It never was.

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
