Don't waste your tomorrows on your yesterdays

Forget what happened in the past, and do not dwell on events from long ago (Isaiah 43:18). 

I'm rereading, An Enemy Called Average, by John L. Mason, which is a book about being more than enough. His book has 77 "nuggets" in it, which are little chapters with encouraging words. In Nugget 16, Mason says we should be careful not to let the past get the best of us, because it will hold us back from going forward. Don't I know that all too well. I should indeed, because it took years for me to start walking in my purpose and the vision the Lord has for me. I wasted soooooo much time wasting time on what people would think about me that I didn't think much about anybody else. That's what happens when we live in the past. We become stifled and that muffles our voice. Then we can't be good for anybody including ourselves. I finally woke up and realized that if I didn't take more godly chances (which means relying on Him and the wisdom He places in our lives), I wouldn't be much and I sure as heck wouldn't do much. The great thing about the Lord is that He is forgiving and when I repented, He opened many avenues for me to help others. This blog is one of them. And if I can rise up from the depths of being in a dark place of feeling sorry for myself and the mistakes I made, so can you. Tap into the Lord as you ask Him for strength to help you walk into your destiny. And watch what He does. He. Will. Do. It. I'm a witness.

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
