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

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
