A godly and biblically-based devotional to help people with their faith and confidence; to encourage, educate, and inform. Come everyday for inspiration. Almost everybody is going through something and you can get through it with Jesus. I am a witness to that fact. Never give up on the great blessings God already has lined up for you. Jeremiah 29:11 says, 'He knows the plans He has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'

A Positive Attitude
Think positive, be positive.
A positive attitude is a must for:
An indicator of a positive attitude is how people treat others when it's no real benefit to treat them well. For instance, talking to a waiter or waitress with respect or speaking favorably about someone who talks about you like a dog.
People who operate in this manner are admirable.
I like being around them.
Someone somewhere said when people like a person, that person is more prone to be one of the first people others help. It's true isn't it? It's easier to help someone who is pleasant, engaging, honest, and kind. The probability that such people get the things they want is high. People just love giving positive people stuff. I know I do. I work with a few people like that and I find myself giving them little gifts here and there. They're easy to bless. They extend kindness and they get it back. A negative attitude, on the other hand, won't get anyone too far. Think about it, most people are not attracted to people with a mean, unhelpful demeanor. It's not instinctual to go out your way for a difficult person like that. I'm not saying we shouldn't be inconvenienced to help them. I'm just saying they don't make it that easy. And that's the truth of the matter.
The bottom line is, a positive lighthearted attitude is a winning one. It will stretch
across boundaries and positive thinkers will find themselves victorious as they
help people win. Then those people will also help them win – it’s reciprocal.

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

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.

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
