No pressure

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Have you ever seen a super athlete under extreme pressure, but before and during the athletic challenge, he will say "no pressure, I got this"? Even though the pressure and stress are clear and present, that athlete will not give it any energy or attention. He will block it out and focus his energy on the positive and he will remain in his peace. Yes and when he eventually wins, because he will, simply because he finished and he completed the challenge without giving up, he will recognize that although the pressure was high and heavy, it would never do him in. It would never get the best of him, and it would never overwhelm him, because he did not let it. That's right. He spoke the win into existence. In the beginning, he said, "no pressure, I got this." And let me tell you, it's just that simple to start it. Now, was everything easy for him? Of course not. He had to put in the work and he had to fight for that win. It didn't come easy. So it's no surprise that winning is always imminent and straight ahead for him. It's evident that the super athlete doesn't let anybody and anything get in his way. In his mind there is no pressure that will overcome him. He's got this, and he has come to win. He's not concerned about the competition, he's not concerned about the naysayers, and he's not concerned about any outcome other than winning. He's prepared for winning for far too long to let any of that distract him. He's sacrificed too much. He knows how far he's come. And he knows where he's going. He's unstoppable. He feels like he can do anything. And guess what? So can you, because Philippians 4:13 says, "I can do all things through him [through Christ] who strengthens me." No pressure. God is with you and He gives you the strength to win. 

Consequently, if you have God and you have the traits of the super athlete, you will win. In fact in the spirit you're already winning and in the end you will get the natural victory. Oh yes, so use pressure to your advantage like the super athlete does. You will get what God has for you so, don't get distracted. Stay focused. Stay with God and watch what He does in your life. You got this. No pressure

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

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
