Seeing Visions

Calm down, I'm not talking about anything spooky, ok?

I'm talking about visualizing the visions and dreams God has for you. I'm talking about operating in what has been in your heart for so long now you're wondering if it's ever going to come. Join the crowd. I'm right there with you. And you know what I'm going to say next, right? Don't you dare start growing all weary and too tired to make another move. Don't you dare start thinking you're going to stop tomorrow, because those visions and dreams are too big and they aren't going to come. Stop that thinking. You have to stay faithful and trust that God's ways are better than our ways and that His plans are just that -- His -- not ours (Isaiah 55:8). If you're anything like me, you need to stay far away from trying to do things in your own power, because it won't work. It would be a great hot mess. Stay away from trying to help organize things for God. He's got this. We best stay out of His way, because when He does it, it will last longer than when we do it. 

So I just want to encourage you to keep your vision forefront and centered. Continue to revisit it often and keep walking it out. That means doing everything positive that goes forward. Any upward motion is one step closer to seeing the greatness the Lord will do. He can't work with anyone who's going to give up every other day. I know some days are better than others, but that's life and the people who can maneuver smoothly through it's ups and downs are the ones God will trust to carry the mission to the finish line. 

That means you must continue to see your visions and dreams and never get them out of your sight.

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 …
