Growth

"Growth always comes from taking action and taking action almost always brings criticism. Move forward anyway.

Sooooo, what area do I need to grow in? Ha, where in the world do I start? Finances, check. Fitness,

check. Impatience, check. Reading my bible more, check (can we ever read too much?). Keeping my house clean, check (there's no excuse with the boys gone). Being more organized, check (papers are all over my house and why can I keep my work papers organized, but not my personal papers?). So what do I do with being hit in so many areas? I tackle each thing one day at a time, otherwise I will start to get overwhelmed and finish none of them. Like yesterday on the track for instance. I jogged 3 miles. There were other people out there who seemed to be in better and worse shape than me, but I was not concerned about them. I was focused on what I had to do. It took forever to finish, but I finished. So yesterday I tackled one of my growth areas. And it doesn't matter if I wasn't able to get everything done in every growth area. I'm taking one day at a time and I will finish in the long run. It doesn't matter if people are already waiting and celebrating at the finish line or if other people come in after me. We can all finish.

To reach your potential, you must do not only what others believe you cannot do, but what even you believe you cannot do." ~John Maxwell~

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
