Mini Habits

Just start where you are until it becomes habit.
I stumbled upon a book called Mini Habits1 and I decided to order it. 

I haven't read it yet, but I may report back to you when I'm done. It's about doing the same thing everyday until it becomes easier, routine, a habit, even if it's only 5 minutes a day. In fact, the author says if we don't have the time to read his book we can take our time by reading 2 pages a day until we finish it (establishing a habit of reading and finishing something). 

After reading it I hope to become better at practicing and mastering certain things in my life. I think part of the unmotivation I have regarding certain areas is that certain things are just downright boring. Nevertheless, I know I need to do the boring stuff now, so I can do the fun stuff later. 

This blog helps me establish habits and it helps me with finishing things. People are becoming to expect it daily and I take that seriously. Imagine if Lebron James didn't practice even though people pay all that money to see him? He can't take that lightly. Even though I'm not on his level, I take this blog as seriously as he takes basketball.

Being unmotivated to develop good habits was my problem for a long time, because I put other things in front of my goals. Now I'm playing catch up and it's ok though. I know God will continue to give me the strength to carry on2. There's a lot I need to get accomplished. I feel as though I am not helping enough people. This blog is the start of many great things in order to help others and you're in on the ground floor. I appreciate everyone who comes to my blog. If I'm helping you, you're also helping me. Yet I still have a few more areas that I can develop better habits in (diet/fitness being one of them).

I leave you with these questions: What are you doing as a mini habit? What are some areas of your life where you can start? Are you doing enough in those areas that are lacking discipline? Why not start right now?

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…

Encourage yourself in God

Do you know that no matter what you may be going through, you can encourage yourself in the Lord? And the Lord will give you the strength and power you need in order to get through? Yes, He will do it. He did it for David when David probably found it difficult to understand how he would endure. But, guess what? God was with him and God blessed him too. There are so many things I love about David. One of those things is that he encouraged himself in the Lord beyond the challenging circumstances he found himself in (1 Samuel 30:6).
When it seemed all was lost, David didn't give up. When everyone turned their backs on him, he stayed with his vision. When his family and community were taken, he went forth with what God told him to do. David never left the Lord in spite of his circumstances. I love that he did the opposite of what some of us would do, he stayed with God, he didn't run away from God. And he didn't try to take matters into his own hands. He ran towards the order…

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 …
