Gone Fishing

"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people" (Matthew 4:19).

That's what Jesus said when he called His disciples to follow Him and some of them literally dropped their nets and followed Him. What do you think it meant when Jesus asked them to drop what they were doing, follow Him, and He would make them fishers of men? 

Do you think he meant take men to go fishing in the lake? Of course not. It meant those men, like all of us today, can and should use what we have to get people to Jesus; to cast our nets to get people to see the light that they're missing out on. 

Yesterday I heard Christine Caine speak and she was amazing. One of her gifts is, going after the bad guys regarding human trafficking and her other gift is inspirational speaking. Caine is doing what she was born to do to make fishers of men. She's helping people and she's spreading the word of God to empower people to do likewise. We can all do our part to get people to Jesus the way we do it. As for myself, how am I making fishers of men? My inspirational writing, blogging, ebooks, and social media are some ways I inspire broken and hurt people to see and follow Jesus and they in turn can do the same. How about you? What's your gift? How are you empowering and resonating with people to see Jesus?

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
