Weeble Woobles

Push me if you like, but I'm 
going to bounce right back up.
"Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down."  

In the 1970's and '80's there was a commercial on TV and the slogan was, "Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down." Weebles were an egg-shaped toy figure that would never fall down no matter how much you pushed or manipulated it. It would go to the left, go to the right, backwards, and forwards, but it wouldn't hit the floor. No matter how hard or how much you pushed it, it would bounce right back up. It weebled and woobled every which a way and it never fell down. They were popular toys back then and billions were probably sold of those little objects. People loved them. 

But what was the fascination?

Well, for starters, they had an attractive name: Weeble Wobbles.

Catchy. Humorous. True.

Secondly, back then and even today, people love the never-give-up, push through mentality. We love a trooper, a fighter, anything that symbolizes a type of toughness to weather the storms of life without throwing in the towel. It doesn't matter whether people see themselves as winners, people like to be a part of winning. That's why the fictional Batman and Superman characters have lasted for so long and the reason the Super Bowl is so huge.

People love winning and they love winners.

Those weebles wobbled, but they didn't fall down.

Isn't it amazing how such an inexpensive toy brought people so much joy? I'm thinking about buying at least one, myself. I think I will watch it for hours. I would think about a lot of things that would immediately come to mind. I can picture my thoughts already. I would see all the times I was knocked down and counted out, only to rise again. Yes, I would think of all my victories manifested through God. The only difference between me and that weebling Wobble is that it sometimes took awhile for me to bounce right back up from all the life events I experienced, but guess what?

I bounced back up. I'm standing now. I'm here. I'm helping people (I really believe that). I'm not going anywhere no time soon. I know my purpose. I know my mission. And I have my Lord and Savior, God, to thank for it all.

It was all worth it.

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
