Cinderella

"As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good..."1
If anyone or anything is against you, 
God will turn it around. He will give you
dominion over much.

 
That's a loaded verse isn't it?

It's usually a reference to negative events that happened (or didn't happen) in our lives, that God ends up turning in our favor. It's a hopeful verse. I like it.

Just like I still like watching one of my favorite fictional stories, the fairy tale of Cinderella. The story centers around Cinderella and her jealous, wicked stepmother and stepsisters. It is the story of a girl who was loved by her father who passes away and is left by the very people who were supposed to love her, but hated her immensely.

Isn't there a real story of a man named Joseph2 in the bible who was also hated by those who were supposed to love him?  

But what was meant for evil, God means for good.

If bad and negative things have come your way I am here to tell you God will turn all of it around for good and His glory. I'm a witness. Nothing can stop what He has planned for us.

God is in control. It doesn't matter what haters come for you, He will turn it around to work in your favor. Even fairy tales had haters.Throughout the Cinderella story she was put through hell, but like Joseph, she maintained an auspicious, hopeful, and bright outlook. It was as though she knew she was going to eventually win, which she did. Although there were many girls, including her ugly wicked stepsisters, who wanted to marry the handsome wealthy prince, he chose Cinderella to be his wife.

She won.

I know Cinderella is a fictional story, but it is a hopeful tale of a girl who started on the bottom and ended up on top. Stories like that inspire me, because she never gave up. Some of her life was extremely difficult, but she fought throughout and ended up winning. It's a story many of us want for ourselves regarding different things the Lord has promised us. We have gone through enough and it's our time to have more.

I know what the Lord wants for me and I'm going to fight in His name to get what's mine. It's coming.

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

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
