The circumstances you’re facing seem totally out of your control.  Use My name and break through the darkness and distractions that are trying to keep you from reaching your blessing.  I want you to be at peace and trust that even though these things seem out of your reach, but they are not out of Mine.  My hand is never too short, and I am still in control.

I see the distress and the grief of your soul, but don’t allow the situation to cause you to give up.  Don’t give in to the temptations of depression and despair.  Take this time to fill your mind with My word, and it will change your view and keep you encouraged.  My word has the power to change the atmosphere and lift you up into the realm of glory, so use it.

When we think about January, we think of it as a time of renewal, a time for a new beginning, a time to let go of the past and move on.  So, as we reflect upon what the Lord brought us through, let us be reminded that nothing is too hard for the Lord.  He brought us through trials, circumstances, and situations that we thought we wouldn’t survive. He opened doors that were once impossible for us to open. He opened doors that were closed in our faces time and time again, and then He closed doors that we didn’t have the strength to close.

Our Lord and Savior remind us there is nothing too difficult for Him. He is on His throne, and His Spirit is within us.  He can break through our cloudy days and cause the sun to shine in our darkest night.  All we must do is have faith in His word; for when the Lord decrees a thing in your life, there is nothing that can stop His word from coming forth. He is more than able to watch over His word and will bring it to pass regardless of how the situation may look.  He is the God of possibilities.

Be faithful to the word He has spoken, and do not let the enemy talk you out of your promise. God will accomplish all He has said to you.  God is for us, and not against us.  He will never forsake us or leave us. Fear not, stand firm and declare the glory of the Lord in your life. God delivered you in the past and He has plans to do even more for you in the future. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. He never changes.

New Devotional Book

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                             CONTACT: Shearon Hurst


when my heart is overweamed3d

When My Heart is Overwhelmed
Provides Daily Words to Comfort, Inspire, and Find Joy through Christ

 The devotional is minister and author Shearon Hurst’s third work, delivering daily spiritual guidance to those facing difficult times

For over 20 years, Shearon Hurst has ministered to a wide range of people, encouraging them to walk with the Lord. And now, in her third devotional book release, Shearon will continue to share words that encourage, strengthen, and draw readers into a more intimate relationship with Him, even in the most difficult of times.

When My Heart is Overwhelmed (13.99, paperback, 4.99, e-book] is Shearon’s third devotional, following the publications of Shh! God is Trying to Tell You Something: Speak Lord, I’m Listening and Where Peaceful Waters Flow: Devotions to Help you Dwell in the Presence of the Lord [both available on Amazon]. Shearon’s latest effort delivers 365 days of inspirational, comforting, and joyful words designed to shed light on the path that the Lord has laid before us, guiding readers through turbulent times.

The inspiration for Shearon’s current and past works was born from years of walking and talking with Christ in both her personal life and professional life.  Daily conversations with the Lord searching for answers to the various trials and tribulations in her life, led the Holy Spirit to speak prophetic words to Shearon, which moved her to share these messages of love, hope, devotion, inspiration, and joy with those who seek to be closer to the Lord and grow stronger in their faith.

Shearon sees her devotional as an interactive work that she hopes will inspire action in those who read it along with the Bible. “As readers take in the words that this inspirational devotional provides, my hope is that they will take the time to stop and search the scripture and reflect while allowing the “Still Small Voice” to minister to them. By allowing the Holy Spirit to speak to them through the messages in this devotional, readers can find comfort and inspiration to devote more time in walking and talking with the Lord while encouraging others to do the same,” said Shearon.

Shearon sees her new devotional as a must-have for anyone looking to grow closer to the Lord, but especially for those who may need comfort in the face of difficult times. By reading the messages in this devotional and trusting in the Lord, readers can discover the path that the Lord wishes them to take to overcome adversity.

When My Heart is Overwhelmed is available online in both paperback and e-book formats on Amazon. To learn more about Shearon or to purchase When My Heart is Overwhelmed or her previous devotionals, visit

You have been presented with certain unexpected challenges, which have resulted in a setback.  Think it not strange that this has happened; however, this too shall pass.  You have not gotten off course, nor has your spiritual focus changed. The tests that you have endured in recent weeks have prepared you to be stronger than you thought you could be.  

In all that you have overcome you will find greater clarity than ever.  This strength and clarity will serve you well in your spiritual progression.  Rejoice in your victory. Because of all you have gone through, you will soon fall into a rhythm with a comfortable stride. Just keep pressing through and refuse to get discouraged, and you will soon see unexpected challenges bringing unexpected blessings. 

Hab. 3:18 Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.

2 Cor. 4:17-18  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

1Pe 4:12-13  Beloved, do not be astonished at the fiery trial which is to try you, as though a strange thing happened to you, but rejoice according as you are partakers of Christ’s suffering, so that when His glory shall be revealed, you may be glad also with exceeding joy.

No, that is not for you. Let it go. I know you think it is what you need, but you must let it go. It will hurt you if you do not let it go. I have something better for you, but you must let go of the old. Oh, I know it may have felt right, and things appear to have been falling in place. Things are not always what they seem. What you are feeling is not from Me. You are walking after the flesh and not in the Spirit. Let it go.
I understand you have needs. I understand what you are feeling. I do not want this to hurt you, and it will if you do not let it go. Do not allow it to destroy all that you have worked so hard to obtain. I want you to release the pain of the past and move ahead with Me. You cannot bring the past with you. You cannot hold onto it while walking with Me. It has no place with Me; I am your future. Let it go.

Those who know that you belong to Me are watching you, and they are watching to see what a difference it makes to have Me in your life. They are watching you in the good times, and even more in the bad times.  They are watching to see if your love for Me is strong enough to keep you holding onto My word.  They are watching to see whether you will praise your way out of this situation, or if you turn aside and doubt that My word is true. What will they see?

Will they see a life of blessed assurance or will they see a life of regret? Will they see evidence that My Spirit is sustaining you, and transforming you, or will they see no change at all?  Will they see you filled with My glory and able to overcome all that comes against them by the power of My word, or will they see someone who is defeated; and does not know how to walk in the authority that I have given them? What will they see?

Take My hand and walk with Me. Be at peace this day and walk with Me in the coolness of the morning. Be still your soul and walk with Me in the evening dawn. Don’t let your heart be troubled this day. Don’t let a spirit of fear overcome you; be filled with power, love and a sound mind. Listen to My words and know that I am with you. Put your faith in Me. Put your trust in Me. Let My peace guide you throughout your day. Let My wisdom fill your house. Don’t be reeled to and fro and act like the world.  I in you and you in Me; we are one. Walk as I walk; see as I see.
Cleave to Me and flow in My spirit. Do not try to flow in the world, but flow with Me. Abide with Me. I desire for you to be focused on the path I have shown you to go. I desire for you to think about Me throughout your day, and not on the things the enemy is trying to do. Why do you focus on these things, and not on Me? Thinking about negative things won’t bless you. I hear more complaining about what you didn’t get, than praise for the blessings you received, and it concerns Me. In everything give thanks, and you will be more heavenly minded.
