Your Spiritual Gifts

Proverbs 18:16 says, "a man's gift makes room for him and brings him before the great."

Back in May I blogged about how your gifts would make room for you. Well, today I want to further elaborate and say that some of us are still not using them for God's glory. We are sleeping on our gifts. And if you're like I once was, you are not using them due to fear of failure, fear of success, worry about what people will say, discomfort with putting yourself out there, and the list goes on. Look, I'm here to tell you that you have to get over that stuff. I stifled myself with all of that whack crazy thinking and all it did was get me further away from my calling and thus, further away from helping those I could help. I know you want to help people and it seems nothing is happening, right? Well, what can be expected when there is nothing consistent about your endeavors? When the full effort is not there? I know what that is like too, because I wasn't consistent for many years until one day when I finally woke up and knew I would go forward and take more chances. That was several years ago, but the real level of consistency started about a year and a half ago. Now I am starting to see the fruits of my labor in many ways, namely that people are telling me how my blog is helping them; how my inspirational posters and videos speak to them, how Sha Sha is encouraging them, and even more.

So I want you to be inspired by what lives inside of you and know that if God put it there it will be used for great things. You can't trust God if you don't trust yourself. Go forth and just try something different. You will get there.

I would like you to hear what Sha Sha has to say about using your spiritual gifts. 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

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
