Looking forward

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.


Where are your eyes looking? Proverbs 4:25 says, “let your eyes look directly forward and your gaze be straight before you.” That scripture means to stay with God. For, He gives us direction and strength to make it through. Sometimes we have good days and bad days, but no matter what, we have to stay fixed and gazed on the Lord. 

Those bad days seem so long though, don't they? Believe me, I know all about them. There were some days that I didn't think I would make it through, but God sustained me and He ensured I came out in tact. I would lie if I said they were easy days though. Yet, I know that looking towards the Light and not having anything to do with the darkness was what got me through. I'm so thankful I am able to encourage you today to stay the course. I encourage you, because I know about hard and difficult days, believe me. And I encourage you, because I know you will make it through too when you choose the road of goodness -- when you choose the road of God. He's going to be with you and He's going to make sure you come out on top. I'm a living witness to that, I'm telling you. I might not be doing everything I want to be doing right now, but I'm on top, because God is in my life. And when God is in your life, you are winning.

So, I'm here to tell you once again, that you're going to make it through and you will be able to speak life to any situation. Proverbs 4:10-12 says "accept my words, that the years of your life may be many. I have taught you the way of wisdom; I have led you in the paths of uprightness. When you walk, your step will not be hampered, and if you run, you will not stumble." That's what the Lord is saying to you. Uh huh, that's what He's saying to all of us. It doesn't matter what you're going through, keep looking forward. You're going to make it through. You really will. You're going to make it through.

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
