Please pray!
Re-cap of tonight


This post will not be long. I need sleep and your prayers. I have to preach in the morning and in the last 24 hours I have caught a very nasty cold that makes it very hard to function. First there are the feelings of the cold but then when taking cold meds, you know how that makes a person feel. (Drowsy, out of it, etc.) I can't afford to have anything hindering me in the morning...I have such a word to deliver and I know the enemy has an assignment against it. Please, please push back with me in prayer. Have you ever taken Alka Seltzer cold medication? It's the most horrible stuff, absolutely disgusting to swallow but yet I am sitting here doing it because I am feeling so desperately bad. I had grandiose plans of what I was going to do in the few hours before the conference started and upon getting here, I immediately laid down and went to sleep for 3 hours til the service. All of you reading this in time ~ thanks for your prayers. I have a strong message to deliver on the role of women of God in the end times. A strategic message! Thank you for lifting me up.

Marsha spoke tonight and her message was, "The Wheel to Nowhere". Her hampsters were the inpiration for it. Great message. Ironically enough WITHOUT TALKING ABOUT IT AT ALL, her text for tonight is the same as mine for tomorrow. What a God thing.

Some points of her message:

  • We are called to be intentional women.

  • The right thing at the wrong time is still the wrong thing.

  • Some of us are convinced that God can't help us where we are at. The enemy tries to convince us.

  • The presence of God changes EVERYTHING.

  • Some of us just need a "honeymoon" with Jesus.

  • We believe there are certain issues in our lives that will keep us from being all God has called us to be.

  • Know -- whatever you are going through, it is not always going to be like this.

  • As soon as God speaks something into your life, the devil goes to work to try to denounce it and destroy it. Don't let him.

    Goodnight all...again, please keep me in prayer that this cold would not hinder what God wants to do and that I can speak boldly and clearly with no problems.

Well, I read this too late. You need Emergen-C packets. These are sold at Sams, Walmart and probablly publix, walgreens, etc. You should take about 3-4 today---it would have helped greatly last night, this morning, lunchtime and dinner. Its a booster supplement-ish. Get a big box from sams if Larry doesn't get some today. I started getting it and Im not supposed to get sick. I'd already had the headache,etc. It went away. So you need it with or without the medicine. You will definitely feel better. I know things went well this morning in spite of it. Praying for you, Sharon J

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
