Well Done

Some of you don't realize how pleased the Lord is with you.

You're just trudging along and living your life for Him as you go about your business to get others to get on board. And sometimes you don't think you're doing enough for God. I know, because I feel the same way sometimes. And sometimes (not all the time, mind you) when I write I am talking to myself. I have to stress that it's from time to time, because my writing is motivated by so many things I am far removed from. I may have witnessed something or heard something and decided to write about it. My writing comes from many places, so who knows. At any rate, this blog post is about you and I. It's personal. And I'm here to tell you that although we may not be doing all we want to be doing for God, He is pleased. He is pleased with the people who didn't turn their backs when the going got "good" and the storm and battle were over. 

News flash. It's never over and the fat lady never sings ok? That means we have to always strive to do more, be more, and let others see God's light in us. Is it easy? You know my answer to that. No, it's not, but still we rise. 1 Thessalonians 4 speaks to living a life for God and it can indeed be a full happy life. You deserve to be happy and God will ensure you are. Know that. 

So, just in case you think no one understands your struggle, because you seem to be the only one standing for God. You're not the only one. There are people around you who are routing for you. People see what you're doing and many more will start to take notice. 

Stay encouraged and keep moving for the Lord. He sees you.

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…

When you follow the light

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. "Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). 
I just want to encourage you to keep looking up, keep following the light, and to keep the plans God has for your life, front and centered. Continue to look up towards heaven no matter what you're going through. If you're not going through anything, then that's good, just continue to ensure your gaze is still on the Lord. No matter where we are in life we have to keep God as the center of our lives and not get too busy for the He, the Father. We must remember that what He did for us and the blood He shed for each one of us to be here today is something to be worthy, something to be praised, and something to appreciate and be grateful for.
Looking up ensures we are looking towards the light, because Jesus is the Light and He sits on high. That's a fact, so…
