Restless

The world is at your fingers tips.
Keeping juggling.
I stumbled across another article that talks about some of the elements of leadership. 

One of the things the article mentioned about spiritual leaders (I'm referring to anyone who brings people to Christ) is that they're restless. Boy oh boy can I can identify. The article said the following:

"Spiritual leaders have a holy discontentment with the status quo. Non-leaders have inertia that causes them to settle in and makes them very hard to move off of dead center. Leaders have a hankering to change, to move, to reach out, to grow, and to take a group or an institution to new dimensions of ministry." 

How many of you can relate? From a young age I knew I was a leader. I just always acted like a manager and a girl who liked to help people in some way. I remember at about 10 years old, always being the teacher leading my brother and sister during the class in our makeshift bedroom classroom. I would give assignments, tell them my expectations, and get very impatient when they didn't turn in their homework (yes I gave homework). I don't know if I just always acted like a leader and my mother treated me as such or if my mother treated me like a leader and I felt comfortable with the role. Probably a combination of the two. 

Nevertheless, leadership is obvious in some people. Anyone and everyone can and should be a leader though -- everyone can bring others to Christ in the ways the Lord gave them. So, we must continue to push through in order to be effective in the land.

"I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:14).

So, to all the leaders and future leaders, are you restless in the name of the Lord? If you are, that's fantastic and He is well pleased with you.

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
