A Positive Attitude

Think positive, be positive. 
A positive attitude is a must for:

- leadership
- growth
- friendship
- other

An indicator of a positive attitude is how people treat others when it's no real benefit to treat them well. For instance, talking to a waiter or waitress with respect or speaking favorably about someone who talks about you like a dog.

People who operate in this manner are admirable. 

I like being around them. 

Someone somewhere said when people like a person, that person is more prone to be one of the first people others help. It's true isn't it? It's easier to help someone who is pleasant, engaging, honest, and kind. The probability that such people get the things they want is high. People just love giving positive people stuff. I know I do. I work with a few people like that and I find myself giving them little gifts here and there. They're easy to bless. They extend kindness and they get it back. A negative attitude, on the other hand, won't get anyone too far. Think about it, most people are not attracted to people with a mean, unhelpful demeanor. It's not instinctual to go out your way for a difficult person like that. I'm not saying we shouldn't be inconvenienced to help them. I'm just saying they don't make it that easy. And that's the truth of the matter.

The bottom line is, a positive lighthearted attitude is a winning one. It will stretch across boundaries and positive thinkers will find themselves victorious as they help people win. Then those people will also help them win – it’s reciprocal. 

It's like great fruit bearing great fruit.

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 joy. And I…

Jesus gives mercy

"Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road."
Isn't that another great testimony about God's mercy? That story comes from Mark 10:46-52 and it's encouraging for a number of reasons. Namely, that Jesus had mercy on a …

The promise is still the promise

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. You know, sometimes in life just when it seems things are looking up, you turn around and boom, a step backwards. Just when you were starting to see a change, a shift, some forward motion, things slow down, almost to a standstill. Then you start to second guess yourself and question your moves to the point where it almost makes you want to just stop and not move at all. And you just about say, 'I'm done with all of this.' 
I know, because I've been there and sometimes I go there now. Yes, sometimes when I look at my progress, I say, 'dag Lord, why aren't I making more progress? Why does it seem I'm hardly making any headway?' And before I say another word, I think about Isaiah 40:29-31, which says: He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar hi…
