Social Media, the Good, the Bad, the Ugly

Social media -- the good, the bad, and the ugly. There are some things on social media that are true, real, genuine, authentic. And there are some things that aren't. Most of the time we show the good, but not the bad and not the ugly. There's not anything necessarily wrong with that, because some things are not encouraging or anybody's business. So here's the deal then: we can't continue comparing ourselves to people, places, and things when we have no idea what's  real or fake. Actually it really doesn't matter whether any of it is even real or fake, comparison is a cousin of the green-eyed monster, jealousy, with envy in equal place. So, don't even waste your time trying to keep up with any of it. It will eat at your soul. Just stay in your lane and realize that what we see is mostly the good, but the bad and the ugly lurks within.

Consequently, don't let social media get the best of you. People don't show their true colors and I get it. Why would people do that in front of many people they don't really know and who don't know them? Isn't that all the reason not to get all swept away with what we think we see? Trust and believe, there's always more to an image.

Consequently, don't compare yourself to man. If you're going to compare yourself to anybody, compare yourself to God. He's the real deal. Genesis 1:2b says His spirit moved upon the face of the waters when He created the heaven and the earth. That's real right there -- the good -- what you see with God is definitely what you will get.

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 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
