Winners

"For the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give you into our hand", (1 Samuel 17:47).

Yes, that's what David said before he decided he was going to face his giant (Goliath). What David meant when he said those words, was that he didn't have much to worry about, because he knew the Lord God was with him in taking down this problem, this giant. He knew it was his battle to win. He was cool, he was calm, and he was collected about it. He knew who he was. Confident, assured, doing his thing. 
All it takes is the confidence that you can do it.
Winners have a certain swagger.

Many times winners just know they're going to win. It's just something about their attitude, based on all their training and preparation. It's not conceit, cockiness or arrogance. It's a quiet confidence -- they simply know

I'll never forget season three of America's Next Top Model when Eva Pigford walked in and strutted towards the judges. She clearly exuded confidence, it was memorable. Typically the models stood somewhere around 5'10" and over. Yet Eva was only about 5'7". What made her stand out among the competition? When she walked in, she walked in like, 'let's go, I'm winning this thing, I'm the next top model, and I'm here to kick butt and take names.' Needless to say, the 5'7" firecracker won. She defied the odds. And she just knew before she walked in, that she was going to win, and she feared no one.

Same thing with David. 

He just knew.

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
