The calm

I watched a video recently of a flood. During the flood, on one side of a bridge, the waters were coming down hard, crashing into trees, and wreaking havoc on all that was around it. And on the other side of the bridge, the waters were calm. There was virtually no movement whatsoever. The waters were quiet and still as though nothing was going on around it. It was an amazing thing to watch. One the one hand, chaos, turmoil, and uncertainty were happening. And on the other hand, peace, order, and calmness were happening. 

Do you see the dichotomy here? Which one are you? I remember being the former, just a few years back when a flood would come and I didn't always handle things with the faith and trust I needed. I sometimes moved too fast and messed things up, because I wasn't confident in what the Lord told me. Which were are you? Today I can assuredly say that I am more mature in my faith and when a flood comes I know how to stand still and know that God is God. Yes, today I am much more sure in who I am in Christ and although the floods will come, I can remain still until it's time to move in the timing the Lord would have me to move in. I may not know everything to do, but I know how to trust in Him now and that has given me so much more confidence in my decisions. 

Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” That scripture is one of many that gives me the strength to remain calm no matter what comes my way. It's something we can all stand on despite our circumstances.

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
