Be Open-minded

There are some of us who will never dip our foot in the water of uncertainty, much less both feet. 

We will only go but so far, but don't you know that's not living? That's only taking life to a certain point and going no farther. Let me tell you, God doesn't operate in us knowing what tomorrow will bring. Yes, we may claim it and speak it, but there are no guarantees that what we want will happen. It's all up to the Lord and what He wants. He can either want what we want or not, but He knows what we need. That's for sure. We can guarantee that much. So, by all means continue to speak things in faith. That's great and God can use us when we trust him completely. That's wonderful. 

Yet, what this blog post is really speaking to are those with overly cautious and extremely safe mindsets. The people who want what they want and limit themselves in thinking that if they don't get exactly want they want the way they want it, they won't take it any other way. Did you get all that? Ok, let me make it clearer for you. I know a person who is afraid to do just about everything. This person hardly wants to go anywhere or do anything out of his or her comfort zone. The person thinks there is only one way to do things and is closed to venturing out. She or he thinks great things will fall from the sky with nice tidy little bows attached to them. But God doesn't work like Burger King. We can't have it our way whenever we want it. We have to have an open mind to what God's will is for our life, not try to create it. That involves total trust. Total faith (Hebrews 11:1).

How can we get all God has for us if we're not willing to risk it all? No risk, no reward. We have to go into the deep and trust that He will be with us the entire time. He will. Having an open mind and allowing Him to work in our lives is paramount to getting what He has for us. If not, we will only get but so far and I don't know about you, but I don't want to live a life like that. I want all He has for me and I'm totally open to it. How about you?

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

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

Protecting My Peace - Day 96 - Disciplining Ourselves for Next Level Greatness

Click to listen to today's podcast episode. When it comes to next level greatness, we have to know that applies to us, not just everyone else. Do you know what God has for you? Do you? He has GREATNESS for you. Yes, YOU -- all of us. It's about doing what you can do and only you can do. You are the only one with your DNA -- none of us. is the same Yet, even when we're feeling down, discouraged, and out, those emotions are only temporary. None of us has it all together. Sometimes I procrastinate and put things off when I know I should be doing better. Yet, I am not as diligent and disciplined as I can be sometimes. Like when it comes to working out, I delay it, because I don't like it anymore. And although I love reading the bible, I haven't been reading it as often as I should lately. Yes, I, Sharon, the Faith Coach, do not do the things I'm supposed to do when I'm supposed to do them. And that my dear friends should not come as a shock to no one. It certa
