People Notice Us

Have you ever said something and a little while later you hear the very thing from someone else? Or you may do something and before you know it someone else is doing the same exact thing? Or perhaps you wear something and the next minute others are copying your style? I have news for you: you are a leader. You may even be a trailblazer. Trailblazers do things first. They're innovators and trendsetters. They "blaze" the trail for others to follow. Oftentimes they don't even have to try hard. They make things look easy just being themselves. People admire them.

Now, the question to those leaders is, are you leading people to heaven or hell? That, my dear comrades, is the million dollar question.

Where are we leading them?

Some of us may think that what we do doesn't affect others, but what we do, can and will be used against us if we're not careful. How? Well, if anyone falls because of us and because of the position of influence God has placed us in, then we hold some responsibility for that fall whether we think it's fair or not. We just need to realize that some of the people watching us are taking notes. These people may be our kids, brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews, or friends. And none are coincidences. Such occurrences are based on the position and order of how God set things up. I know it's not an easy walk and perhaps we fall short. If that happens, all we can do is apologize, repent, regroup, and begin again.

God is a merciful God and He will redeem His people.

It's great when the people we influence follow us. There's nothing wrong with that at all. If God placed us in a position of influence, then we have to take that seriously, because...

...people notice us.

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

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

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.
