Embracing the new

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Today I've come to remind you about what 2 Corinthians 5:17 says about you and that is, you are a new creation, because of the God who lives in you. That means you have the inherited right to be exactly who you are and nobody else. God made you perfectly, because He made you in His image (Genesis 1:27). So guess what? It's cool to embrace being different, because God made no two people the same. Sometimes when we look at social media, we tend to think we're not good enough, but let me tell you, you are -- we are -- great enough. And we have no need to compare ourselves to any person. The only one we should be comparing ourselves to is God. And although we will never measure up, at least we have a great guide, a great barometer, a great benchmark, in order to determine how to be all we can be.

And what I'm also saying is we should be confident in being different and being new creations, because nothing that grows stays the same and that is a wonderful thing. Embrace the new and walk in confidence in being you. Yes. As I said, the God in you is great, so you are great by default. We have to remember that and start acting like we really know it. At any rate, I just wanted to encourage you today just in case you may need it, because we all need encouragement from time to time, right? Right.

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

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

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.
