Something Extra

There is a simple rule of life.

You want to know what it is?

The people who do more, get more.

Have you ever noticed that? Think about it. Usually when people do extra, such is the case: The person who studies more, has better grades. The person who eats right, is healthier. The person who exercises more, is fitter. The person who tithes more and is more financially prudent, is or will be better off financially  (yes I most definitely believe that and it's no dispute in my mind). The person who is nicer & more respectful to people, gets more back in return. The person who practices their craft, is better positioned to seize opportunities. I can go on and on.

So it's conclusive that whomever does more, does extra, gets more. It's a direct correlation. It's for sure, cause and affect. And it's also a no brainier that the reason we don't get what we want is simply because we're not doing everything we can do to get what we want. Even if we don't hit the bullseye, we'll get close enough to it if we're giving it all we've got. A large part of the reason for success (no matter how big or small), is sacrifice and working smart (and thus hard), as well as, being consistent. Remember, my telling you I wasted lots of time not writing? I would start and stop, start and stop. And I got nowhere. Consequently, the reason some of us are not where we want to be is because we give up, just like I did. We convince ourselves it's too hard (like I did). We think, because it's taking so long that it won't happen (like I did). So we stop. That's the worst thing we can do because that means nothing will happen and nothing from nothing leaves nothing. Doing something even if it's a small something, is movement, which is better than doing nothing. 

So I'm here to tell everybody that none of us will get anywhere if we're not willing to give up something. We have to be inconvenienced and uncomfortable in order for us to enjoy convenience and comfort later. And none of it will come without us doing something extra as much as possible. "The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; But the soul of the diligent shall be made rich" (Proverbs 13:4).

Just do something extra -- consistently and your time will come.

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

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 is Real

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
