Protecting My Peace - Day 83 - Are You Afraid of Using Your Gift?

Click to listen to today's podcast episode.
I want to continue talking about our God-given gift and fear. Are we afraid of using our gift? Are we letting people talk us out of being focused towards what our gift will do for us and where our gift will take us? Are we planting that gift in good soil, nourishing that gift, and giving it the TLC it needs? We have to continue building despite what we may see around us. We can't let fear get the best of us. I used to operate out of fear and didn't know it until I got out of it. Now I can think back and say, 'oh no, I now realize how I used to think and no mas! I don't ever want to think in a self-defeatist way. I know God has more for me and my business.' 

Bottom line: keep moving forward no matter what you may see in the natural. Keep your eye on the vision God has for you and do something everyday to appreciate that gift. It doesn't matter what is around us, we can use our gift for good; to help people; and to build an empire. Yes we can. Be bold and courageous. God's got you. He didn't put that gift in you for nothing. He remembers.

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
