Accountability People

We all need a person
we can count on.
Do you know people who don't ask for help when it's needed; or who accept information from misinformed people; or who hardly receive wisdom when it's given from wise people? Sometimes they want to do their own thing and nobody can tell them nothing. I can almost guarantee that such people make lots of mistakes that can be avoided.

I used to be that person. 

Grasping for straws in the dark. Asking for advice from fools. Of course I did foolish things as a result. The blind leading the blind. 

A total hot mess seeking direction from total hot messes. 

What a mess.

Now I'm wiser and I'm all the better for it. I have an awesome accountability person who has helped make me a better person. She has been my confidant, my wise bounce-off person, and a non judgmental friend. Just a few weeks ago I text her at 5am in the morning and asked if she could call me when she got a minute. I was having a hard morning that day. I was expecting a call a few hours later, which would have been understandable. I mean she does have a family and it was 5am. But she called me right away. I needed to talk to someone I could trust with no biases and that's what I got. That conversation did so much for me at the time and I felt so much better about my situation.

Everyone needs a person in their lives with wisdom, who's trustworthy, and who doesn't make us feel funny or regret disclosing personal sensitive information to them. Accountability people or whatever one chooses to call them, are important for our growth. In fact my accountability person also has an accountability person -- God's people helping people. Nobody knows everything and no one is always right about potential decisions. If we don't have a person in our lives we can get a second opinion from then it's possible we're playing Russian Roulette with our decisions with a probability of 1 in 6 of making the right decisions. That means we will make the wrong decisions most of the time.

I don't want to take chances like that anymore.

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

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
