Frustrations Don't Last Forever

Problems are here today
and gone tomorrow.
Sometimes what's going on in the world gets to me.

I often think about what it all means. What it means for me, for my family, my friends, for all of us.

If we're not careful, things can really get us down. But instead of focusing on the doom and gloom I automatically focus my mind on the positive. I focus on the power and the powerful. I focus on God and His holy word, like the scripture that says, "let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." That means, God is in it for the long haul and He will never leave us or forsake us. Whatever it is He put us on this earth to complete is what will be done on earth as it is in heaven. That gives me peace in the midst of it all. That energizes me that the pain I sometimes feel is temporary and nothing to be bothered by; that the struggle may be real, but it's not my reality; and that the mountain may be high, but it ain't high enough to make me stop anything. 

It doesn't matter how bleak things get in the world, I will never give up. I believe God is not done with us yet and as long as I believe that, I know there are many more people to reach in His name.

That thinking takes me to a peaceful place that all will be alright in the world. Then I am pleasantly reminded that frustrations truly don't last forever.

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.
