Don't stop, keep going

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
There are so many remarkable people in the bible who went through the fire, but because of their faith, they come out unscathed. They didn't give in or they didn't give up when their back was against the wall. They continued on despite any obstacle around them. Do you know, when challenges come, if we will just continue to hang in there and keep trudging along, something great is bound to happen? It may not be right away, but eventually it will happen. Hebrews 11 tells about many of those people. 

Sometimes I listen to a podcast or follow someone on social media and I love love love what they're doing. I look forward to listening to them or seeing what they're doing, because I get so much out of what the're doing or what they're saying. They're either full of wisdom, really funny, or they just have that something unique that makes them interesting and engaging to look at or listen to. They add highlights to my life. Then one day I go to find them and they are no longer producing their podcast or their social media. It's like they fell off the face of the earth and I get so disappointed. I say, 'gosh what a shame, they had something great going on; they were on to something, and they just stopped.' But I often wonder if they stopped, because they got tired, because they didn't see anything happening for so long and they just gave up. 

I think all of us in this space know what it feels like to want to stop, because the grind does get hard. There's no doubt about that, yet I wouldn't do it -- I'm not giving up, because what else would I do? I can't imagine doing anything different than what I'm doing now. I'm not stopping. I'm going to keep going no matter what. You keep going too, because there's someone out there who loves your content and loves what you're putting out there. Listen, we get alot from you so please stay with it, because you are a bright spot in someone's day. I'm telling you. And just in case you hardly hear it, I'm letting you know right now that we want you to keep going.

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
