About Sharon

Hi, I'm Sharon. Welcome to the Daily Devotional Blog.

I started the site in 2013, because I wanted to let people know what was in my heart each day. I figured if I was feeling, thinking, and sensing certain things, then others were too, and could be encouraged by my testimony (which the blog springs from). Thus, In Sharon's Heart started and has evolved into the Daily Devotional Blog, which is still about speaking the things God has placed in my heart -- from my heart to your heart. It's a place inspired and guided by the Lord Jesus Christ.

Another reason for the inspiration of the site, is because at one time I think I was a functional "depressed" person. What does that mean? Well, although it wasn't clinical depression, I sad and unfulfilled. You see, I was achieving worldly (opposed to spiritual) endeavors like gaining degrees, working ceaselessly in my job, serving diligently at my church, and being the best mom I could be for my two boys after my divorce, something was still missing. I functioned in the daytime, but I was sad and down in the dumps at night. I would wallow in my grief at the many opportunities I missed and the mistakes I made in my past. I wallowed so much, I started giving all my nights to the enemy instead of to the Lord. I wasted so much time wasting time on thinking on the things that had already happened and the things I couldn't change, that I didn't live in my purpose.

Then one day I asked myself how I could sort out my thoughts; sort out my heart; and help others. And that’s how In Sharon’s Heart started, how it continues to evolve, and how I finally got out of that dumpy slump. Yes, I started seeking and reading the bible, listening to inspirational sermons and music, getting godly counsel from trustworthy and wise friends, and praying without ceasing. I also gained an awesome accountability person (aka a spiritual coach, we all need someone we can talk to right?). God is awesome.

Today, I am now a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17); I can do all things through God who gives me the strength to do them (Philippians 4:13), and I will continue to trust in the Lord even if I don't understand all He's doing, because I know He will direct my paths and make them smooth (Proverbs 3:5/6). One of the many great things about the Lord God is that He will turn trials into triumphs, tests into testimonies, and lows into highs. For, He's a God who covers His people from start to finish. I pray you will be encouraged and uplifted by the Daily Devotional Blog.

Blessings,
Sharon

  1. Thank you Mrs. Sharon, for I use this site to dig out of the depression that sits on my chest in the morning. After visiting with you, listening to music and sermons, my chest grows lighter because burdens are lifted. God bless 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

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

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 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
