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.'

Relax, it's ok.
According to dictionary.com, rejuvenate means to restore to a former state; make fresh or new again.
Sometimes that's what we need in order to feel alive again. Sometimes we simply need a make-over and a do-over. There's nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong with going on a vacation or taking a break from the things that add stress to our lives. I'm talking about those things that are sometimes beyond our control. It may be a job situation that God has not released us from yet, but it causes pressure in our lives. Or perhaps a school or business endeavor that we are committed to and that would be catastrophic to get out of. There are simply some things in life that we may not want to do, but we just have to do, at least for a certain amount of time.
But here's the good news: it's ok to treat ourselves to the things that rejuvenate us to make us feel brand new again. We should do more of that. In fact, I need to do more of it myself. I need to sit out on a beach somewhere, stare at the ocean and that's it. I've never really done that before and I think it's time.
Anyway, it's really ok to take a break. Nobody's perfect, but God, so this may be a great time to slow down and remove ourselves from a certain situation even if it's temporary. We'll be glad we did it and it just may be the best thing for our souls right now.“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28).

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.

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
