Accountability People

We all need a person
we can count on.
Do you know people who don't ask for help when it's needed; or who accept information from misinformed people; or who hardly receive wisdom when it's given from wise people? Sometimes they want to do their own thing and nobody can tell them nothing. I can almost guarantee that such people make lots of mistakes that can be avoided.

I used to be that person. 

Grasping for straws in the dark. Asking for advice from fools. Of course I did foolish things as a result. The blind leading the blind. 

A total hot mess seeking direction from total hot messes. 

What a mess.

Now I'm wiser and I'm all the better for it. I have an awesome accountability person who has helped make me a better person. She has been my confidant, my wise bounce-off person, and a non judgmental friend. Just a few weeks ago I text her at 5am in the morning and asked if she could call me when she got a minute. I was having a hard morning that day. I was expecting a call a few hours later, which would have been understandable. I mean she does have a family and it was 5am. But she called me right away. I needed to talk to someone I could trust with no biases and that's what I got. That conversation did so much for me at the time and I felt so much better about my situation.

Everyone needs a person in their lives with wisdom, who's trustworthy, and who doesn't make us feel funny or regret disclosing personal sensitive information to them. Accountability people or whatever one chooses to call them, are important for our growth. In fact my accountability person also has an accountability person -- God's people helping people. Nobody knows everything and no one is always right about potential decisions. If we don't have a person in our lives we can get a second opinion from then it's possible we're playing Russian Roulette with our decisions with a probability of 1 in 6 of making the right decisions. That means we will make the wrong decisions most of the time.

I don't want to take chances like that anymore.

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

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

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.
