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

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
