Continue On

Sometimes no matter what you do, there are people and the pathetic forces that live inside them, that try to stop you. 

There's always something or somebody trying to throw a wrench in things. Don't be moved by any of it. Continue on. Keep those goals and dreams front and center that the Lord placed inside of you. Don't let anything or anybody stop you. You know what it is that lives inside your heart. It's lived there for a long time and it's finally coming to you. It's so close you can almost touch it and as soon as you reach out to get it, bam! It's snatched right back. In fact, it's moved back even farther. You know why this is the case? It can be two things. It's because you're not ready for it and the Lord knows it, so He's allowing it to stay away from you or it's because the enemy, the devil and his cronies, are trying to stop you. In either case the Lord can change things up in an instant. That's not a problem. Trust and believe that. So here's the deal: you must continue on the path you're on. Don't get discouraged and don't do anything stupid. Just act as though it's business as usual and stay focused. Time is still on your side and so is the Lord. 

Winning is still in your sights. Keep that in the forefront of your mind and nothing else. Your time may be delayed, but it's coming and you will have an even deeper appreciation for it. And that means you will be grounded in humility and humility will get you places that you would not have otherwise been allowed to enter. As Galatians 6:9 says, 'don't grow weary, your time is coming if you don't give up.'

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 joy. And I…

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 the order…

Jesus gives mercy

"Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road."
Isn't that another great testimony about God's mercy? That story comes from Mark 10:46-52 and it's encouraging for a number of reasons. Namely, that Jesus had mercy on a …
