Are you like iron?

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Proverbs 27:17 says, "iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another." What that means is that the people who are around us are the people who make us better and we make them better. Or at least it should be that way, right? I Googled some iron synonyms and some of the words were: uncompromising, unrelenting, unyielding, unbending, resolute, resolved, determined, firm, steadfast, and unwavering. Wow, those words to me convey that if a person is like iron, they are fixed, gazed, and purposeful in what they want and nothing will stop them. So I ask again, are you like iron? Do you stand on the promises of the Lord? When we're honest with ourselves, we can answer those questions with a definitive yes or no. 

And if you answer yes to both of those questions than you are indeed like iron. Yes you are. And more than likely, you are already doing positive and encouraging things. You are already sharpening those around you, because you are a sharp person who knows where you are going and where God has for you to go. You sharpen people and they sharpen you. You are attentive to excellence and you are hungry for knowledge, to which you eagerly apply to your life and the lives of others. That's wisdom. In fact, you give a new name to iron lady and iron man. And what I would say to that is, keep it up and keep the sharpening going, because we all need iron in our lives. Wouldn't you agree? So stay encouraged and keep doing what you're doing.

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 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
