Proverbs 19-Better is a poor person who walks in his integrity, than one who is crooked in speech, and is a fool.

Proverbs 19:1 says, "better is a poor person who walks in his integrity, than one who is crooked in speech, and is a fool."

How important is walking in integrity to you? How important is others walking in integrity? According to the dictionary, other words for integrity are: character, decency, goodness, honesty, morality, righteousness, uprightness, and virtue. Sounds like the fruits of the spirit huh (Galatians 5:22/23)?

Anyway, integrity is really important to me and I try my best to operate in it. In fact, I base all of my relationships on it. All of my closest relationships are with people who walk in integrity. Yes, and if I sense for a moment that a person can't be trusted, that's the end of that. Our relationship will only be surface -- hi and goodbye type of thing. No hard feelings. There's just nothing we have in common. Integrity means that much to me. For instance, there was a previous person in my life who is no longer in my life. I purposely ended the relationship, because every time the person didn't agree with me on something, it didn't matter how small, the person would go to another person instead of discussing it with me. That got old, I had had enough, and that was that. I moved on.

Integrity should mean alot to us, because "better is a poor person who walks in his integrity, than one who is crooked in speech, and is a fool" (Proverbs 19:1).

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

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.

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
