Keep Seeking, Keep Serving

Keep seeking and serving the Lord whether people get you or not -- whether people understand you or they don't. Even if you have to yell, "I will bless the Lord at all times and his praise shall continually be in my mouth!" (Psalm 34:1), do it over and over again. And whatever you do, don't move from your post and position of God. Let Him shut the mouths of the lions, while we play our positions.

I know for a fact that there are some people who think I'm straight up weird simply because I don't do the things they do. They think I should have certain people in my life and they don't understand why I don't. They think I should be involved in this and that and they don't understand why I don't indulge. I won't ever indulge. It doesn't matter how long they wallow in their confusion about me.  Let them wallow.

What I'm starting to realize more and more, is that some people just don't understand who I am. They don't get that my reliance is on God moving and shifting things on my behalf, not Sharon trying to move and shift them. My life is so much better that way. So, if people want to think a certain way about the servants of the Lord, let them. You have to be willing to stand for God. Those who choose to put Him first are the ones who He gets -- who He understands. And when that's the case, man's opinion doesn't matter one iota. 

This is just a reminder to keep seeking God no matter what comes your way and don't worry about man's view of you (Matthew 6:25-33). Keep serving Him whether people get you or not. God will ensure they will one day understand. In the meantime, keep being you and stand strong.

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
