God will redeem you (with podcast episode #3)

This is what the Lord is saying to you today: "I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from slavery to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great acts of judgment" (Exodus 6:6). 

I googled the word "redeem" and this is what came up: "1. compensate for the faults or bad aspects of (something); 2. gain or regain possession of (something) in exchange for payment." So you see, God will redeem you. He will get you from bondage that has been holding you back. What it is? What's been that yoke or hold against you? Whatever it is, just as God told Moses to tell the Israelites that He was going to ease their burdens, He's telling you the same thing. The Israelites didn't believe it, so God had to prove it. I'm coming to tell you to believe it. And I'm coming to tell you that God will give you your name back, your possessions back, and He will deliver on His promise.

I didn't live in my purpose, in my gifts for many years and now I am. But I'm tired of seeing others weighed down by all the mess that keeps them in slavery of sorts. Nobody has to live that way. God has much more for us. So it's time we stopped thinking that success, accomplishments, and dreams are for other people. It's time we stopped thinking that our life -- our mistakes -- our setbacks can't be used for us instead of against us. You may be asking, what do I do to help myself? How do I help myself? Well first it starts with changing mindsets. Do you think God can help you help yourself? If you do, you are well on your way, because God moves by faith. If you don't believe it, then the road will be longer and harder. It doesn't have to be that way though. Faith goes a long way, because it starts with a heart change, then a mind change, then a tongue change, then an action change. It's as simple as that. Have you tried that? "And Jesus answered them, “have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him" (Mark 11:22/23).

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

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
