Bye, Baggage

Enough is Enough
A goodbye note to baggage:

Dear Baggage:

You have to go.

We have to keep it more real than ever before, so we're going to tell you for the last time, what is going to happen starting now. We're tired of taking you everywhere. It's time to start a new, because you have been weighing us down for years. It's time for us to start afresh and to rebuild, so we are bidding you adieu. That's right, bye bye.

You have come for the ride for far too long now and we don't have much to show for it. You have cost and caused us too much -- friends, relationships, money, health, pain, defeat, anger, mistrust, depression, the list is endless. We let you control our emotions and run our lives for so many years we can't even count. We are turning all that pain into gain, so it's alright though. We will now be able to help those who went through it. So Baggage, you didn't win, we won.

We cried our last tear of shame, blame, and regret.

We are done with you. You ran the show for a long time, but not anymore. It's not too late for us to begin again. We know what the Lord told us, we know what His word says, we know we are magnificent and beautiful in His eyes. And that's all we need to know to move forward with sheer determination that this time things will work out well for us. That's right, we are leaving the old behind and the new is here.

We are walking in faith as we trust God and as we forge boldly ahead saying, no weapon formed against us shall ever prosper again.

It's a new day.


A New Me

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

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
