It's Your Time

It's time to start saying "yes" to you. It's your time to focus more on you. Some of you have been focused so much on others that you have neglected yourself and I know God doesn't want that for any of us. He wants the best for us, because He loves us and He wants us to be our best.

How many of us can say we are striving for that? How many of us can say we are putting ourselves first for a change? Look, I'm by no means saying we need to neglect others who are in our care or walk away from our responsibilities. That wouldn't be wise at all. What I am saying is that in order to be any good for anyone else we have to be good to ourselves. Sometimes we have to say "no" and guess what? Everyone is going to be alright.

Nobody is going to fall over and collapse because you said that word. In fact sometimes it would empower them to know they don't need you as much as they thought. That maybe just maybe they can really make it without you being there the entire way. A child will never walk on his own if we are holding him every step of the way. He will be handicapped by us. Take care of you, ok? “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! (Matthew 6:22/23). At a minimum we have to aim to be spiritually, emotionally, and physically healthy and we will get there. Sometimes it's all about us and that can be very healthy.

So, this blog post is to inspire you to take care of yourself. You're so awesome to others and they see your awesomeness. Have you missed the many opportunities to shower yourself with the greatness everyone else sees? If they see it, why can't you? It's your time baby, to start taking care of yourself. 

I would like you to hear what Sha Sha has to say about taking care of you and spending time with you. Sha Sha is my avatar, so her face is based on my face and the voice you hear is actually me speaking through her. Check out what she has to say:

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…

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 …

The promise is still the promise

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. You know, sometimes in life just when it seems things are looking up, you turn around and boom, a step backwards. Just when you were starting to see a change, a shift, some forward motion, things slow down, almost to a standstill. Then you start to second guess yourself and question your moves to the point where it almost makes you want to just stop and not move at all. And you just about say, 'I'm done with all of this.' 
I know, because I've been there and sometimes I go there now. Yes, sometimes when I look at my progress, I say, 'dag Lord, why aren't I making more progress? Why does it seem I'm hardly making any headway?' And before I say another word, I think about Isaiah 40:29-31, which says: He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar hi…
