A Sudden Glory is Finally Here…and other Girlfriendy Stuff

NEWS FLASH: IF YOU READ TO THE END OF THIS TOO LONG POST, YOU COULD WIN A FREE BOOK:)

Yesterday was the launch day for A Sudden Glory: God’s Lavish Response to Your Ache for Something More.  For the rest of this week I am going to be talking a lot about this new message that has helped me have a more intimate relationship with God than ever before.

This is a temporary launch excitement. Don’t worry that I’m going to be flashing pictures of my new “baby” like a grandma on steroids. I’m just so passionate about this message and hope you’ll join the celebration to help spread the word. A Sudden Glory is a message that will help women:

Stop feeling like they are constantly disappointing God.
Start enjoying God’s relentless romance drawing her clos

Stop feeling like God is far away.
Start living in constant union and communion with God in intimate relationship.

Stop striving to discover what God wants from her.
Start seeing what God wants for her…the abundant life Jesus came to give 

Stop carrying around the constant ache for something more.
Start experiencing God’s lavish moments of sudden glory to satisfy her longing heart.

Stop looking for the mysterious formula to make an intimate relationship with God a reality.
Start enjoying God’s presence in all of life…all of it.

Just writing those bullet points gets me excited all over again. You gals on my blog are my family, so I thought this was the best place to ask for help spreading the word.

What can you do? Thought you’d never ask.

    I just sent an email to 5 of my girlfriends with the link….I am really praying they will want to read it together, and I am so glad it has a study in the back! We have all been discussing a book to start now that summer is over…so this one is right on time! Thanks Sharon!! ::::HUGS:::::

  2. Charlie August 22, 2012 at 5:41 pm #

    Enjoyed the blog all the way to the end, which wasn’t long at all. I will definitely share with friends. God bless you in your/ the ministry.

    Posted on Facebook, Tweeted and Pinned! Can’t wait to read the book!

  4. Carolyn August 22, 2012 at 6:04 pm #

    I usually don’t enter these things but I have been blessed by Girlfriends in God and I know I want a closer relationship to God and so I have copied the link to some family and friends who have also been blessed when I have forwarded some of the pieces that you’ve written! Thank you so much for the opportunity to do this.

  5. Rosa Hopkins August 22, 2012 at 7:31 pm #

    Hi! Sent your link to 5 of my friends on facebook. I love the girlfriends in God devotions and can’t wait to read your new book!

  6. Salina Gibson August 22, 2012 at 7:57 pm #

    Sharon,

    I can’t wait to read this book. I’ve already been immensely blessed by “You Scars are Beautiful to God” and “You’re Not Good Enough and Other Lies Women Tell Themselves.” as well as all things GiG. Thank you so very much. I’ve been pinning your photos re- this book on Pinterest. 🙂

  7. Kate Walsh August 23, 2012 at 10:26 am #

    Knowing Jesus gave up everything so that I could have an amazing relationship with Him is fantastic. It’s never ending. It’s shows that God loves me for who I am. I’ll say it again He loves me despite everything I’ve done. It’s about what He Has Done. Thank you God xx

  8. Funto August 23, 2012 at 10:42 am #

    This book sounds great. GiG has been a great help to me. And I loved today’s devotion (The King and His maiden). It got me smiling. Knowing God pursues me helps me realize I don’t have to “change” to win anyone else’s approval. God’s love is simply enough and it keeps me satisfied. I don’t need the things of the world 🙂

    HI Sharon
    After reading the blog today, I was quickly filled with so much celebration. 3 years ago almost to the day, Jesus gave me a the second of two attempts to get my attention within a 3 month period. It was while I was staying at my parent’s trailer that happens to be at a Christian campground. I had watched Louie Giglio’s video from the Indescribable tour. I went to bed but couldn’t sleep cause there was a bright light shining in my closed eyes. If I opened them it went away. A few months prior to this in my home late at night there was a persistent knocking that happened every time I tried to sleep. See the pattern? But this night was different. There was no possible way for such a bright light cause I was in the bush! I knew within moments that it was the Lord calling me. So I simply said this” Lord, I see now that it is you. I give in. Now can I please get some sleep.” With that I closed my eyes and in the morning I gave my heart to the Lord. Since this day I have seen transformation in not just the way I view the world but physical and emotional changes too. I used to be a basket case when I worried which usually affected me physically. I have ulcerative colitis and when I am stressed that’s the first thing to act up. Since giving my heart to the Lord, I have had so little episodes of outbreaks that I only need one hand to count. I’m able to stay cheery even though things are not going right. Oh and I’ve returned to the two gifts the Lord gave to me. For 20+ years i was a chef but always felt that I wasn’t doing the right thing. Just over a year ago I sprained my ankle and as a result had to change my career. Answer to prayer came when I made the change from chef to Home Daycare provider. I have always had a passion for children, now I know why. I’ve also started writing poetry. I used to write all the time. When I went to college life happened and I forgot these two gifts. Through prayer and trusting in the Lord, He brought me back to them. I have never been so happy. I’ve written 70 poems over the past year and am working on a book.
    My biggest struggle in all of this is my husband who is not a Christian and has no desire to be. I remain strong that the Lord will see me through this.
    Thanks for today’s post. It’s nice to have reminders to take time to ponder all the reasons I’m someone worth dying for. There is much more to my story but I’ll leave it at that!
    Have a Blessed Day!
    Nancy

    Love my GiG devotion! This is currently my theme, what I’m working towards. I’m actively taking those steps to seek out those sudden bursts of glory for a joy filled life, no matter what my circumstances. This does not come naturally, so thank you for helping me to,see God really loves me!

  11. Amie August 23, 2012 at 11:33 am #

    I can’t find today’s devotional about the king and the humbled maiden! May I forever be humbled by what Jesus did for me! Lived His life with no regard for self! Thank you Lord for loving me so much!

  12. Janice Bentley August 23, 2012 at 11:48 am #

    I shared through Facebook message with several of my closer friends I think would enjoy and learn from your book. I have been extremely blessed by the devo’s I’ve read. You ladies are all certainly gifted. Thank you for not putting that gift under a bushel but sharing it with us instead.

  13. Rebecca Logan August 23, 2012 at 11:50 am #

    Understanding all that Jesus gave up for me makes me realize that the things about myself that made me want to hide from God for so long were so very trivial. But in that is hope, because there are still things about myself that I have not conquered yet, and as hard as they seem now I know that God will help me to push them aside just as easily as I continue to pursue Him.

  14. Quiltspinner August 23, 2012 at 11:55 am #

    One day I was singing the song “Worthy, You are worthy” and God turned it around and said it to me. That was the beginning of my understanding of His love for me. Also when I realized if I were the only person on earth He still would have died for me.Wow

  15. Vickie Craddock August 23, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    Hi Sharon, i’m responding to your morning devotion on Thursday, but I am also going to encourage some of my girlfriends to read your new book. I also like the fact that youhave included the BibleStudy questions in the book. Anyway yourquestion from yourdevotionwas how does it make me feel knowing all what my savior gave up just for me? I can say WoW ! I am humbled to think the author of this world loved me enough before He evem knew me to do this. I have to focus on Jesus and His attributes in order for my life to be pleasing to Him. If left on my own, I fail miserably to bring Him glory on a daily basis. I know the Bible tells us H e took on human form but I wonder did He have to be aware of who He was in order to please His father?
    I look forward to reading your book.
    Vickie

  16. Selina Law August 23, 2012 at 12:42 pm #

    As I read the questions at the bottom of the devotion, I begin to think about all Jesus gave up for me and it gives me a drive to want to please Him and give all of myself as He gave all Himself for me. Today I see myself as free I am no longer bowed down by the cares of this life and the way peolple see me, today I see myself as a child of the most High God; I no longer see myself as a mistake or an accident but I see my life as blessed because of what Jesus did for me.

  17. Kelly August 23, 2012 at 1:35 pm #

    Hi Sharon,
    I LOVED the GIG book, Trusting God, and have been loving a more intimate relationship with God that ever before. Your new book looks great! I just facebook messaged 5 girlfriends about it! 🙂

  18. ivette Lopez August 23, 2012 at 1:38 pm #

    Dear Sharon, last year was a very difficult year for my family. One of those difficult days I got to know GIG´s. From that day on I started to translate every day GIG´s devotionals for all my friends in Venezuela. This weekend I read one of those romantic novels you mentioned on Tuesday. Monday morning (4 am my time) I had a very honest, open talk with God, with a beautiful sky as backstage, I told Him how I wanted to be pursued, wooed, pampered and all those little details we women expect from a lover, but specially I wanted Him to tell me to what length He was willing to go for me. Imagine how amaze I am to find in every word of every devotional I have received this week and answer to a specific request of my prayer. But today´s was so incredible, so detailed, that only the One that knows our heart so well could have made this possible. God bless you all, for this little pieces of Heaven you send this way every day.
    Big Hug
    You GIG Ivette.

    Knowing what Jesus did has completely changed my life. I had been stuck not knowing the life He wanted me to have. But now I know that God wants me to have a wonderful life and all for his glory. I love myself now knowing the love that God has for me. Before, I did not have a love of me, just a woe as me attitude but that is a thing of the past and that is where it is staying. I was in a pit and He pulled me out with his love. It was there all along because how else could I have gotten through. It is not until I opened my eyes to see it and accept did I have the strength that was given to me to get out of the pit.

  20. grace August 23, 2012 at 1:45 pm #

    Thank you .. what a blessing .. share this with friends via email, tweeter, Pinterest and FB — I think each of everyone of us should have this longing – to have a deeper relationship with our Savior. I know I need it, daily .. hourly even! It is the ‘ longing’ in our heart that He wants to fill in .. thank you, Jesus!

  21. Carol Mundy August 23, 2012 at 2:09 pm #

    Responding to the request to list the most romantic thing anyone’s ever done for me! We haven’t done it in quite a while, but in past years, on or near our anniversary date, my husband and I would get away for a weekend! Go to dinner, explore antique shops, just walk and explore new places, stay in a hotel and just enjoy each other. Doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, which is very scarce these days. But just being together, just the two of us. So important. Such a feeling of being cherished, like that old song! I tell him that all the time, that he makes me feel cherished and loved beyond belief. My sisters do not have that. I am so very blessed.

  22. MaryEllen Smith August 23, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you..GiG is something I look forward to every morning before I start work. It has helped me through the last year as I have gone through some trials and tribulations including the process of divorce. After 30 yrs of marriage my husband decided he didn’t want to be married any more. It has been very difficult, but my faith has increased 100 fold. If I did not have my trust & faith in God and what the many blessings he has given me I don’t know where I would be today. Thank you Jesus…

  23. Norma Fuquay August 23, 2012 at 2:27 pm #

    Sharon,
    Thank you for your devotions….each one touches my heart. Today’s subject is one that I’ll have to work on. I do understand His deity and the magnitude of it just makes me feel that much more unworthy. I know in my head that it’s wrong for me to feel this way, I pray that Christ will give me a little more confidence.

    Thank you for all you do!
    Norma

  24. Brenda Tyrrell August 23, 2012 at 3:24 pm #

    This made me feel a lot more important than I ever had!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win, Sharon! I enjoy reading your books and I look forward to reading A Sudden Glory. You have a wonderful gift and I pray that God will continue to bless you as you help millions draw closer to God. Have a blessed day! 🙂

    Hi Sharon,
    I am so excited, send this link to 10 people in my address book, will post on Facebook and Twitter.

    Thank you!

    I emailed the link to six of my female friends and my brother (he is always looking for gifts to give his wife and myself.

    I receive your daily emails and each one of them touches me in some way. I look forward to reading them. I have recently purchased your book about womens dreams and although I haven’t started it yet…I look forward to allowing God to reveal His dreams for me.

    Thank you for allowing God to use you for His purposes!!!

  28. Melanie McKinley August 23, 2012 at 4:59 pm #

    Thank you. God is a good God and has answered my prayers. I am on a journey to wholeness and this is a part. Blessings. M

    A group of us gathered together this summer to read and study The Power of a Woman’s Words after hearing you speak at Hawthorne Gospel Church in NJ. Wonderful! I’ve been to many excellent bible studies. But the intimacy and sharing we experienced through reading this book was just beautiful. We were sad to have the fellowship end. Maybe A Sudden Glory is where we pick up again…

    I found out when I was 33 that the life I thought I had, Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters was not as I had been told it was….the truth is…I am a product of rape. My biological mother was raped at 14 post surgery and delivered me at 15. No one wants to give up a baby that they carried for 9 months so she gave me to her sister and her husband to raise. I was oblivious to any of this and just throught I was the firstborn, no questions asked…Later on, as I digested this information. (after recovering from the shock) I realized that the MOM who raised me, never showed favoritism toward her biological children that were born after me. As far as she was concerned, I was born of her heart and I was literally her child. Her sister, my biological mother, also gave up quite a bit…her firstborn. She knew she couldn’t take care of a baby nor at 15 did she want to so in love..she gave me to Mom. When I was first told this information, I was angry that something so important was kept a secret for 33 years, (my medical history, my school records..all were wrong because she would not sign adoption papers) and then I went through the “how can you keep some of the children you had and get rid of others pity party” But during that soul-searching time, I recognized a pattern in these women’s lives…all that they did they did for love…love for me…they both sacrificed albeit in different ways for their entire lives BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY they were a representation of what Christ has done for all of us when he took on the sin of the world, past, present, and future for all of us. The totality, the expanse, the volume, the measurement, all encompassing love Jesus has for us is mind altering….if I think about it too long….I just fall out before His feet, thankful and exhausted. I am so grateful that God took “a conception” that was not planned, criminal actually and turned it into a life like mine. I have been blessed by these two women and the Lord Jesus Christ my entire life. They introduced me to God along with my dad…and I was never the same again. Lord, I pray, let my life be a living sacrifice while I serve you!

  31. Jennie Fellows August 23, 2012 at 7:37 pm #

    Thank you so much for all of your inspirations you share, they are truely from God =
    Viewing myself through the eyes of Jeus and what HE did for me the cross has changed everything in my life, especially how I view myself and others. I am created in the image of God, I am secretly and wonderfully made, HE loved me even before I was born. Giving me an eternal view of all here on earth lets me realize the only thing that matters in who I am in Christ Jesus. All this earthly stuff is just that stuff, not any meaning in the realm of HIS kingdom and all eternity. Christianity is so simple, HE offers a gift, one must reach out to accept it, staying focused on Jesus Christ and what HIS blood did for us keeps our lives here so simple, it is when we loose focus that it becomes complicated. Knowing we are seated with HIM at the right hand of the Father, come LORD JESUS COME!

  32. Amy August 23, 2012 at 10:12 pm #

    Hi Sharon,
    Congratulations on your new book. After reading the comments above..I felt very moved and think they are more deserving of your new book than I am. Just wanted to congratulate you on your success. May God richly bless you with joy, peace and love. In Christ, Amy

  33. Jessica Mc August 23, 2012 at 10:23 pm #

    I want to read this book, as well as your others. I think it will help me strengthen my relationship with God and find the answers I’m looking for. 🙂

  34. DawnMarie August 23, 2012 at 11:11 pm #

    God answered my heart’s prayer this morning after reading your devotion I read the first chapter of your book ‘A Sudden Glory’ and reading about Jesus’ love and devotion touched me. I’ve asked 8 friends if they would like to read it with me and shared it with someone who leads a ladies’ Bible study. I look forward to buying it as soon as possible. God bless you!

  35. Linda Leston August 24, 2012 at 1:11 am #

    Knowing all that Jesus gave up for me changes the way I see myself as it changes my own thoughts about myself which sometimes says I’m not good enough. When I think of what Jesus has done for me I begin to see myself as having value and having something great in me for God to be able to chose someone like me. The very thought of God trusting me (the one who fails, doesn’t get it right, not perfect) really “blows” my mind, and to also to think that He trusts “me” with so many flaws to be used as an instrument in accomplishing His purpose, further encourages me that if God has confidence in me I also need to have confidence in myself.

  36. Tiffany August 24, 2012 at 6:33 am #

    Thank you for sharing your gift with us girlfriends…. ive had a hard time lately & i can tell when im missing out on God…. i tend to expect more from others. Well… as i read & tears flew down my cheeks wishing my husband would love me this deeply… i realized how wrong i am & have been. Even though i do desire his love… i desire HIS love more & i need it more…. i am so hurt by life right now but i have been reminded its not my life but a life with Christ. Thk u for these words & for the BEST reminder. Its hard to swallow it & accept it but i can be refocused & changed thru Him. Because of what He has done. Thank you

  37. Regina August 25, 2012 at 1:36 am #

    Wow. Quite frankly, when I got this email, I admit I wasn’t too excited. It was a forward from my little sister, who just got her email and always sends me stupid stuff. But then I read the King and maiden illustration, and clicked on the link to the blog. Boy am I glad I didn’t delete that email. Right now I’m surviving through my second week of highschool- scary stuff. This is just what I needed. I have a personal love relationship with God, and I attend an awesome Jesus-freak church, where everyone is my family. But I’m not always on that Jesus-high, and I’m not very good at sharing Jesus with other people. The description of the book below the King and maiden thing is pretty much me. I love Jesus, and He is my life. It’s not that I’m too scared to share Jesus with people; just that to be honest, I don’t exactly know how. I’m afraid I’ll just push people farther away from Jesus if I try to talk about Him. Finally I’ve realized that it’s not about me sharing Jesus with other people, it’s about Jesus sharing Himself with other people through me. I’m just a doorway, and it’s my job to always be open so Jesus can get through. The only way to do that is to dwell in His Spirit and Word, spending time constantly in His presence. But sometimes the Spirit feels so far away, and I am too weak to find Him on my own. I know it’s up to me to choose Jesus, but I can’t do it on my own.

  38. Regina August 25, 2012 at 1:59 am #

    Yes, me again. I just wanted to way that I’m sending this to all of my girlfriends, not so I can win a free book, but because it touched me exactly as I needed. Please keep doing God’s work, and don’t ever think that amazing things aren’t happening through this. I love Jesus and I can tell this has been blessed by Him. You don’t see strangers pouring their hearts out to each other like this every day. Glory to God!

  39. Toni Ammons August 28, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

    One of my most favorite songs is “Great is Thy Faithfulness”….for He has always been faithful to me.

  40. Carol Mundy August 28, 2012 at 6:56 pm #

    Just read about the mountain-top experience! there is a new song, not sure who the artists are, but I think it’s called Ten Thousand Reasons! Starts out “bless the Lord, oh my soul, oh my soul, worship His holy name. Sing like never before, Oh my soul, Worship His holy name . . .It is such a great song. When I was a little girl, my mother would often rub my eyebrows when I had been upset about something or she was just trying to get me to relax for sleep. I often think that God rubs my eyebrows at night when I am restless-it is such a sweet picture and conveys just how much He really does cherish us and love us!

  41. lorraine dorasamy August 30, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

    Wow ! What an amazing way you share about the lover of your soul. Its like poetry to me. How true that we pursue other lovers n reject the amazing love of our God. Thank you for sharing that.

  42. jehrica August 30, 2012 at 3:00 pm #

    Yearning for a man to fullfil our needs is a sin and will always severely disappoint when TRULY ONLY GOD ALMIGHTY IS MIGHTY TO SAVE and MIGHTY TO LOVE!!!
    It is easy to get trapped in the notion that if we only looked better, weighed less or impressed more that we would get those needs met more but GOD ALMIGHTY is saying that looking to vanity is a trap and HE does not want us wrapped up in it-
    We are beautiful to HIM always because HE made us!

    Psalm 119:37 (KJV)
    “37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in THY WAY.”

    Psalm 139:14 (NKJV)
    “14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” 🙂

    HI Sharon
    I was just listening to the video trailers about Sudden Glory and as I was listening to your example of Sudden Glory it reminded me of one. It was 2 years ago. My church has a ladies retreat every fall. I had only been attening church since that spring(2010). I saw the signs for this and instantly thought of how great it would be to go. I wasn’t thinking about hooking up with God at this point, it was more just a get away. I had been with my children 24/7 and had just been through some really rough stretches. I need rest. So I signed up. I didn’t know a single person other than a few casual hello’s at church. I spent most of the weekend in tears. I bawled every day at least 3 or 4 times. but I felt great being there. In the morning of the last day, I awoke way before everyone else, showered and decided to go for a walk. It was cold and crisp outside. The sun just barely rising. There was a thin layer of fog waiting for the sun to burn it away, just sitting above the trees. Gorgeous. I was walking by the coral where a mighty looking strong brown horse stood at the top of a mound. He just stared at me. I stopped and looked and began talking to the horse. It of course didn’t answer me. It was almost as if he was though. For some reason I looked behind to see if someone was watching me talk to this horse and in the sky was the most breath taking thing I had ever seen. I’ll try to describe but words can’t do enough. In the sky just above the fog line was the streams from two jets that had made a cross slightly tilted. I stammered as I wanted to get my camera but I knew by the time I got back the moment would be lost. So I took the picture in my heart. God was with me that moment. I know He had made it for me right at that moment because as I went to continue on walking I saw the second jet disappear into the sky. I walked on the clouds the rest of the day!
    Ps I’m gearing up for my 3rd retreat at the end of September. I can’t wait to see what he has planned for me this year!

    • Sharon August 30, 2012 at 9:22 pm #

      You go girl! I love those retreats!

    Hi Sharon, I read your emails everyday. It is so amazing. However, I feel t surgerieshis book would help me because I’m balancing a lot right now and totally can’t seperate. My husband just had two surgeries, I was diagnosed last week with a brain tumor, adoptive NaNa, manager of an 6 room boarding house, partner with a jewelry business, & helpful neighbor. I’m going all day nonstop. It feels as if I never have time for God. Although I’m constantly thanking Him. Praise God!!!!!

    Hi Sharon…

    Today’s devotion on the secular and the spiritual vying for my attention spoke volumes. And after reading the amazing stories and testimonies above, there’s really not much I can add…other than I’m another woman who could use the book. I will be attending our local Community Bible Study for the first time (it’s always held during the work week, but I am now self-employed and should be able to go)…and will have many more women to share this with as well. I will post on FB and send out to friends via email…I’m so grateful to the girlfriend who shared GiG with me! Thanks for your faithfulness in discipleship, and love.

    Hey, i’ve been blessed by the messages from Sharon Jayne’s inspired by her Book which i hope to receive- am far away i wonder if its possible and not too costly in hard copy. some days when am having A Bad day i remember that God loves to shower me with blessings, i look around and i see something beautiful e.g. ,last time i saw a small pack of lavender flowers on a big tree. they were the only ones, they were so beautiful, i smiled and it was indeed a glory moment. thanks Sharon. let me share this now.

    Dear sharon,

    i came across you post on Girlfriends in God. i am raising my two adopted sons in a world that is cruel, and often i feel very alone in this battel.I am young, but we try childrens aid thinks were great….but family, “friends” and even strangers are not supportive. They have negative comments on everything from parenting, to assuming teen pregnacy & racial slurs etc. i get this weekly. and it drains. I do feel like a disapointemt and that i oft am not doing enough …..Last night i tried to confront my neighbour about his remarks and gossiping about our family …. i had had enough of everyone talking, let alone at my own home, And i couldnt have picked a worse time. I did write an appolgy note but im the one that felt horrible not them…..This was timly thank you for the post.

    I need this book. Since my husband passed this past November I have become “Amanda.” Taking care of our 7 years old twins, my parents , household affairs and staying active in church ministries all while working has caused me to ask, where’s my time to seek and be intimate with God? Thanks for letting God use you to get His message to us!
