This is my favorite picture me and Sharon. That glow of Sharon is just outstanding, the glow of being filled with Jesus Christ.
This picture was taken at the 2017 Christmas Party that Sharon’s company held.
Today I share with you that it is our wedding anniversary! I celebrate what the Lord has done for me in having Sharon as my wife. Long-time friend Tom Johnson told me years ago, “Dewey, Sharon is a very strong woman, she speaks even when she is quiet, just by her presence.” Yes! She is quiet, but is so very strong in her words, wisdom, love and presence. I am here to tell you what God has shown and taught me about my marriage to Sharon.
For one thing, when Sharon and I met years ago I did not have two pennies to rub together. God put us together. Pastor Barry Dickens, then of the Los Alamos, NM Methodist Church and his lovely wife Susan ministered to us. God used Barry and Susan to help us forge a strong relationship with God and each other.
It will be 6 years this August when God formed FGGAM.
I will always remember the day I came home from KKIM Christian radio in Albuquerque and told her as I walked through the door, “Babe, I have got to leave KKIM and go into the ministry God has put on my heart.”
Sharon did not even bat an eye, I walked away from a $80,000 a year job! Can you imagine telling your spouse that you were leaving an $80,000 a year job and going into a work that paid zero at the start. God has nothing to do with zero however! Sharon knew more than me that God had this covered.
Sharon, for the first 2 and a half years sold off many of her personal belongings to help fund the ministry. When things get tight, she still does. We are constantly downsizing.
It is best to downsize with the ways of the world and upsize with the ways of God.
Sharon is very busy with being a full-time RN, helping me with the ministry, being a grandmother of two now, mother of 5, but it is a full-time job of keeping me in line!
We both are all sold-out for God.
Marriage and Ministry with God is what we do. I say WITH GOD, because HE has to lead the way in all things. The older I get, I see things better. That is why I use the term, “I pray today I don’t do anything stupid” It is when we do or say stupid things we get in trouble. It is that simple, but we have complicated this world. That is what God has shown me.
When you hear clearly what the LORD wants you to do for HIM, it is just plain awesome. What hurts me is so many people never hear their clear calling from God, because they do not know HIM as they should.
It hurts me to see inconsistencies in people, they change this to that, quit this to do that………God is not a God of inconsistencies. People do that with their families and jobs, even in ministry.
When you hear from God what HE wants you to do for HIM, there is no stopping you, because HE is truly in the drivers seat, giving you the map, the power, the protection, the wisdom, etc. all things that are good.
God knew I needed Sharon to complete the mission He had set forth.
Sharon and I fear being away from God.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
It is best to be where God is at, and He is at FGGAM, He no longer wanted me at the radio station.
It is best to be with God…can you even imagine being away from God? I fear being away from God! Amen!
Sharon is with me in this walk with Jesus at FGGAM. She continues to fund this ministry through her full-time nursing position.
She is my heart, soul and mind. She keeps me focused on God and family. She helps me shrug off the negatives that come at us every day. She is my shining star from our Lord Jesus Christ.
