Have Confidence, Believe in Yourself

Confidence
looks good on you
No matter what, we must believe in ourselves. Remember how I laid around (mostly at night) feeling sorry for myself? Well guess what? I wasted a lot of time just waiting for things to happen, waiting for things to fall out of the sky. Guess what else? It doesn't work like that. You have to get up and get going.

I always thought I was the most confident girl in the room. Now I know that wasn't the case, because confidence is when we're with people and when we're by ourselves. What do you in your alone time? How do you feel? That's when we know how much confidence we really have. Confidence is silent and confidence is loud, but not the rowdy kind of loud. The effective kind of loud where we're making a positive difference and making an impact.

Believe and
you will achieve
 As I go through life I realize what I need to do to put that confidence to work no matter where I am. How I make that work is by listening to God's voice, reading and listening to his word, listening to spiritual and positive music (doesn't have to all be gospel either, so don't let people give you a guilt trip on that), and listening and talking to positive people.

That's how I work on my confidence, which is the key to believing in myself more than ever and doing the things I was put on this earth to do.

I feel free

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. How are you feeling today? What kind of head space have you been in lately? I ask, because I'm just wondering if anybody feels like me -- free like me. Free as an eagle. Free as can be. That's right, out with doing business the old stale way and in with a fresh new operation. It's a shifting happening in the atmosphere of Sharon's life and I'm moving on to the big and awesome things God has for me. What  do you say for yourself? What are you speaking over your life? What it is for you?  For me, I am no longer afraid to go out in the deep end. I am no longer afraid to fly higher, I am no longer concerned about what I have or do not have, and I am no longer concerned about what anybody thinks or says. Who the heck cares anymore? I don't. Because God tells me he doesn't give me a spirit of fear or timidity ( 2 Timothy 1 :7) , but He gives me a spirit of love, confidence, power, self-control, and

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

Encourage yourself in God

Do you know that no matter what you may be going through, you can encourage yourself in the Lord? And the Lord will give you the strength and power you need in order to get through? Yes, He will do it. He did it for David when David probably found it difficult to understand how he would endure. But, guess what? God was with him and God blessed him too. There are so many things I love about David. One of those things is that he encouraged himself in the Lord beyond the challenging circumstances he found himself in ( 1 Samuel 30 :6). When it seemed all was lost, David didn't give up. When everyone turned their backs on him, he stayed with his vision. When his family and community were taken, he went forth with what God told him to do. David never left the Lord in spite of his circumstances. I love that he did the opposite of what some of us would do, he stayed with God, he didn't run away from God. And he didn't try to take matters into his own hands. He ran towards th
