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

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

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.
