Fear Not

The Lord has given you boldness,
power, love, & self-control.
Walk in it.

A short time ago I was talking to a little girl who said she was afraid of thunder and lightening. 


I asked her why and she didn't know. All she know was that she would cry and tremble during the entire duration of the thunder and lightening in what seemed to her, a never-ending nightmare. I told her to speak faith every time she felt that way about the thunder and lightening and anything else in her life. I told her about a certain scripture that spoke to that issue and that things would change for her if she believed they would (faith). I printed out the following power-words and told her to post them somewhere prominent:  "for God gave us a spirit NOT of fear but of power and love and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7).


I know that little girl is going to be ok, because she was serious in saying those words and making them mean something over her life. She recited them a few times after I gave them to her.


What words do you speak over your life? 


Like that little girl, I have power-words (scriptures) over my life and the people I love. I even have them for those who don't have love for me. And God hears every last one of them. He will honor the words we utter to Him when we love Him. I'm not talking about speaking words of doom against anyone, just the opposite. I'm talking about speaking positive words of faith over people, places, and things -- no matter how we feel about them or how they feel about us.


That little girl loves the Lord, I could tell, and she is blessed because of her faith in God the Father. Therefore, she has absolutely nothing to fear and neither do we.

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. 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.
