A godly and biblically-based devotional to help people with their faith and confidence; to encourage, educate, and inform. Come everyday for inspiration. 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. Jeremiah 29:11 says, 'He knows the plans He has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'

Change is Good
Energy making energy.
If you follow my blog posts, you will see a few themes among my writing.
Like sensing God's love, living in faith, pushing through pain, effective leadership, and staying encouraged throughout it all. Things like that.
I love learning about the people and companies that have some of those philosophies. I'm always interested in hearing more when it's a person or business doing extraordinary things. I love studying such people and places. They give me energy and motivation.
They inspire me.
I like that they had faith in their undertakings and although the struggle was real, nothing stopped them. Who doesn't love a great pain to glory story?
Back in March I wrote about how successful companies keep reinventing themselves. How they continue to innovate and leave their competition in the dust. There's nothing like a good fight. That's why I love to watch those animal shows or business shows like The Apprentice and Shark Tank. Even if the people on those shows lose, they are winners just being willing to put themselves out there. They took a chance and I admire their strength.
Reinvention and change are part of the formula for success in any lasting endeavor. Parents can't continue to parent the same way with every kid, because kids change and times change. Couples can't continue to do the same things they did 1, 5, or 10 years ago, because people change and times change. People can't (or shouldn't) continue to wear the same clothes they did 50 years ago, because people change and times change.
Change involves change.
All I'm saying is that modification, forward thinking, and transformation are necessary for growth and winning. And when we allow ourselves to embrace those things, there will be so many blessings attached, that we didn't even know we could experience such joy. This is just a few people in the bible who stepped out in faith and got blessed for it. We can learn a lot from them.
The moral of the story is that there is no such thing as failure when we try. We just have to be open to new things and we have to stop being so afraid to step out. I used to live there and it's a not a nice neighborhood.
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
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.

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
