Focused on the goal-part 2

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Look, everybody, the bottom line is that we have to focus on the task at hand, right? What did God tell you to do? Focus on that. Yes, and if it's one thing, stay with one thing; if it's two things, stay with two things. But it's not going to be too much that He tells us to do at once. I do believe in the phrase, "staying in our lane." There are certain times that we need to cross over to other lanes and go pass other cars. But we have to know when the Lord tells us to do that. For now, I'm staying in my lane. That's what I have to do.  I'm focused on my lane and I don't have to cross over to another lane right now in my life. I don't.

We have to focus on what God told us was going to happen. We have to focus on that awesome and godly thing that lives in our heart. We cannot and must not, get sidetracked and distracted by the unnecessary and the unimportant. You know what God put in your spirit. I know what God put in mine. We know it and we can't be concerned about the negativity and the people who don't get it. We get it. God gets it. And that's good enough for me. How about you? In fact, it's great enough for me.

Philippians 3:15/16 says, "So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision—you’ll see it yet! Now that we’re on the right track, let’s stay on it." And that's it. Focused. On. The. Goal.

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
