It's Different in the Dark

Things look much different in the dark. 

It's true. 

Think about it. When we drive at night we can't see certain things, right? It's too dark to see them. It's also harder to find out where we are, or tell what direction we're going, or figure things out. Things just look a whole lot different at night. Yet when we drive in the light, isn't it amazing how much more we can see? Things we had a hard time noticing in the dark are now clearer, we can tell what direction we're going faster, we can make out landmarks with more ease, and reading the signs becomes effortless.
The light is always more powerful than the dark. Always.
Darkness is temporary, but the light is forever.

God divided the darkness from the light

Darkness and light are separate. Don't get it twisted. It's the way the Lord set things up -- it was no accident. Another thing about the darkness is that it doesn't last long, the light always follows, and the light stays with us. That's right, did you know that even in darkness there is light? Yep, there are just certain things we can't see even when they're there. Another way to put it is God is always here, there and everywhere. 

He's that magnificent and that powerful.

So there's no need to fear is or to get anxious about the darkness, because the Lord is with us no matter where we are. Although it's harder to navigate in the darkness, we get through it nevertheless. The Lord never leaves us or forsakes us. He helps us see in the dark -- the light helps us get through the darkness. We simply need the light. Why? Because we will for sure go through the darkness. It's inescapable. Then when we come out of that dark place we are made stronger, faster, and better because we simply got through it. Making it out of such a place gets us to a position of power and determination. No one can stop us.

We need the darkness to get to the light.

God sees us in the darkness and He's helping us.

Darkness is hard, painful, depressing, sad, scary, all of that. Without navigating the deep seas and the mountainous terrains, how would we ever get to the light? God is the light and with Him all things are possible for those who believe. So, no need to worry in the scary dark times, just continue to pray and seek His face, and He will ensure you get to the light. Then you will be able to see clearer and things will get easier. I'm a witness.

That's how it is with the light.

The light will lead you to great places.

God is the light

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 is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno
