Almost everybody is going through something and you can get through it with Jesus. I am a witness to that fact. Never give up on the great blessings God already has lined up for you.

It Still May Be Us
Some things never change, do they?
Time to think about some things.
Some time ago I wrote an article, that if the same things keep happening to us just about everywhere we go, then we have to take a look in the mirror. That it's not the world against us, it may be us against ourselves.
I think many of us had to learn this lesson or at least learn some version of this lesson that it wasn't all about us. Some of us needed to get a revelation that it was us who needed to change in order to grow. I know I learned a few lessons that I simply had to do things differently for different things to happen. I'm continuing to learn as I go and the fact that we are still learning is a great thing. Nothing wrong with that at all. Continuous learning should be just that, continuous, no matter how old we are. It puzzles me when people don't want to change and their rationale is, 'I'm just being me" or "I'm too old to change" or "I'm stuck in my ways" or "It's them, not me and I'm not changing.' Wow, so is what I'm hearing here, that we are always right and everyone else is wrong? Everyone else? Really?
Free our minds and the rest will follow.
Nobody has arrived and all of us can learn something new no matter who we are. We would be surprised what happens when we just open up and listen to people. If we're hearing the same things everywhere we go, we should take self-inventory and ask ourselves, what can I do differently? Our world can open wider and we can do the things we never thought we could do, go places we never thought we would go, and be the people God always had for us to be.
That involves us having an open attitude and working on ourselves, not expecting others to.

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

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.

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
