Do you know you’re in a league by yourself? It’s true, because there’s only one you and since there’s only one you, you’re the only one who can do what you do. It doesn’t matter who is doing the same thing, the fact is, nobody is you and you’re not anybody else. Did you get that? Ok, I’ll put it this way, what is for you, is for you and you only, so don't bother comparing yourself to people who seem to be further along than you, because you'll feel like you don't measure up. And remember, no one started where they are now. And don't waste a minute comparing yourself to anyone who doesn't appear to be as far along as you, because then you may get a false sense of where you are. 

The best thing to do is to just focus on what you're doing and keep doing that. It's about staying in our lane and since God is a huge God, He blesses according to His mandates (purpose), for our lives. When we do what He told us to do, the way we do it, then we don’t have to feel like we’re missing out on anything. We can cheer others on and support what they're doing, not become all envious and competitive. Who has time for that? It's counterproductive to operate like that. Instead, we can applaud, compliment, and root for the next person. Then our time will come when it’s supposed to. And that’s exactly when we want it to happen. Not a second before. Remember what God told Abraham in Genesis 18:14? He said, "Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” And guess what? That's exactly what happened. Sarah had her son Isaac and she had him when it was her time to have him. It's the same for us -- what will happen for us, will happen in God’s timing. His timing has leverage and staying power and when God is in it, it’s gold. He hasn't forgotten about you.

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

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
