Moving Right Along

Life comes at us fast sometimes and when it does, we have to keep it moving. We can't get down and stay down. There's always scripture we can stand on and if you don't think words are powerful, perhaps the bible should take on a more meaningful purpose for you. It is the most powerful book in the world. It is the breathed words of the Lord God. I stand firm on it. It is the power I carry around with me. I may not know every single thing in it -- far from it -- does anybody? I think that's impossible. At any rate, what I'm trying to convey is that we must find the strength to move along when we have struggles and circumstances that come our way. Part of why we have to deal with our challenges is because they allow us to identify with the people who need us to help them. Our life experiences allow us to be able to connect with others. It's part of why our testimony has to be told aloud. It really helps people to hear it. 

The testimony I will share again is that I didn't step up for years, because I was afraid of success (sometimes failure, but mostly success). What do I mean? I was afraid that the more people knew about my life, the more I would be exposed. And that was hard for me, because I was always a private person, but I had to get over that in order to help others. This blog is one of the ways I put myself out there to let people know that they're not alone. It's not about us comfortable all the time, it's about doing the will of God.

Seeking the Lord and opening and applying His word will enable us to look towards heaven. That makes moving along easier (Matthew 6:25-34).

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
