America

America, the beautiful. 

She will always be beautiful to me. It doesn't matter what the past tells me, what the present shows me, and what the future holds for me. I will love my country to the end. I was born and raised here. That counts for many things. Namely, that it's my home. To deny my country because of what I see, is to deny the home town I was born and bred in. Just as the Lord will never leave or forsake me, I won't leave or forsake my home. 

America, the beautiful. 

It's stretching and busting at its seams now. The darkness is coming to light today. It will get worse before it gets better. And there will be great and lasting lessons learned. Such is life though. Don't we always come out on top when we're fighting the storm? It's difficult pushing our way through, yet we rise. And come out better and stronger. But to win, there can no longer exist a them and an us. In order to win, we can't leave anyone behind. 

America, the beautiful. 

I've decided that I will fight for it to stand strong. There is work to do and it's going to be hard work, but we must stay with it. The victory is worth it. We can never give up on America. This is our home. So if you're tired, the Lord will give you rest. If you're concerned, the Lord will settle you. If you're afraid, the Lord will comfort you. Go to Him and tell Him about it. Imagine the power in such a move if everybody did that. "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28).

Be encouraged -- encouraged in Jesus Christ -- to move mightily in the land, because He will.

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
