Laugh and Be Happy


We have to do what we can do in order to go on everyday. 

We have to think positive thoughts even if we have to force ourselves to. We must not carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. Don't take on the burdens of what God handles on our behalf. This is a challenging time right now, but we have to push ourselves to be encouraged even when it seems things are getting worse, not better. 

We have to be of much faith. This is not the time to give up our faith. This is the time to fight for it.

Where does your inner strength lie? Who does it lie with? If it's with Jesus Christ, you can draw from Him at anytime and He will give you peace amidst the storms. He will wipe your tears of pain and anguish. He will make your crooked places straight. I'm telling you what I know. You mustn't give up and think God is unaware of what is going on in the city and in the field. He is working behind the scenes to make it make sense to us. How much of it will make sense, I have no idea. Only God knows that. Yet I do have faith that things will get better, because they're so bad now. Sunshine comes after the rain.

I just want to write these words to tell you to go on, smile, laugh, and enjoy the life the Lord has given you. Don't wallow in the despairs of the world. The Lord wants us to rely on Him and to lean on Him. He is a solid, firm, joyous, and peaceful foundation. That means we must see great things even if they're not right in front of us right now. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" Hebrews 11:1).

In God we trust. Those words mean more than ever right now.

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

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

Encourage yourself in God

Do you know that no matter what you may be going through, you can encourage yourself in the Lord? And the Lord will give you the strength and power you need in order to get through? Yes, He will do it. He did it for David when David probably found it difficult to understand how he would endure. But, guess what? God was with him and God blessed him too. There are so many things I love about David. One of those things is that he encouraged himself in the Lord beyond the challenging circumstances he found himself in ( 1 Samuel 30 :6). When it seemed all was lost, David didn't give up. When everyone turned their backs on him, he stayed with his vision. When his family and community were taken, he went forth with what God told him to do. David never left the Lord in spite of his circumstances. I love that he did the opposite of what some of us would do, he stayed with God, he didn't run away from God. And he didn't try to take matters into his own hands. He ran towards th
