In one single moment, God can change the heart and life of a person. The greatest of
sinners is never too far out of the reach of God's log arm of love. Sharron Kay King
is a testament to the awesome Grace of God and His redeeming power.
"I was saved in 1987 - completely free and delivered from over 13 years of a drug and alcohol
addiction," recalled Sharron.
Sharron's life began to spiral into a habit of drugs and alcohol as she entered her
teen years. At the age of 25, Sharron's mother disowned her - a time when her life was at her worst.
"I was so heavily involved in drugs and drinking that she absolutely turned her back on me," said Sharron.
"That was when God began to work in my heart. My mother always prayed for me, and many '
nights I'm sure I kept her up all night."
Conviction began consuming my every thought as the song, "Jesus Loves Me" flooded my
memories of going to Sunday School with my Granny as a very young girl.
"I was born again, July 25, 1987," remarked Sharron. After being delivered from drugs
and alcohol, you can bet I had lots to sing and shout about! When God miraculously
saved me, I had such a desire to do something for Him. I began to sing in the church choir."
Sharron attempted to play the guiter soon after that, but she became discouraged at her
lack of skill on the instrument. Then one day, nearly two years later, Sharron heard
a still, small voice telling her to pick it back up.
"While walking past the closet where I stored my guitar, I heard a small voice say, 'Pick it up.'
So, I picked up that old guitar and sat on the side of the bed; and, much to my surprise,
began to play music," Sharron recalled.
"I tried several times to walk away from playing music and singing in front of people,
because I didn't think I was good enough to be a professional," mentioned Sharron.
"I want my life to reflect the love and mercy that Jesus has for me. I want to see people who think
there is no hope find what they have been searching for!"
"I love singing about the Lord! I can express myself better in a song than I ever could
speaking to any one. My songs are my message and testimony," Sharron said. "I don't
know what God has in store for me in the future. Whatever God bids me do, I hope He will
find me willing and obedient to follow the path He has laid before me."
Sharron's closing comment, "Although my Mother turned her back on me at the worst time
of my life, I understand now that was the best thing she could have possibly done.
We don't realize how precious something is in our life until we've lost it. My Mother and I
became the best of friends. I'm so thankful she used tough love. I'm sorry for the gried
and hardship I put her through, especially now that I lost her on July 17, 2010.
I will forevermore be grateful for the desperate act of love she chose in order to
save me from me. Thank you Mom, I miss you and Granny so much!"
