The Couch

This thing, the couch can be a problem if we're not careful.
It's one of the most ingenious inventions of all time.

The Couch. 

Even if it's uncomfortable, it's comfortable. It can be the most raggedy, tattered, ugliest couches, yet lay down on it, especially with that remote and your favorite show and it's all she wrote. You're good, you're in the zone, and nobody better come for you. 

But...that couch has been the reason for so many unfulfilled hopes. That couch has held up countless dreams. It has even stopped my flow too many times to even think about. The more I read about the people who have achieved great things the more I understand that they were the people who stayed away from that dreaded couch. For, that couch (with that remote and refrigerator) have been the enemy to progress, movement, innovation, and success. Sometimes it's best not to even lay eyes on it, because it's so tempting. But we must not let temptation get the best of us. Temptation is not our friend. We have to resist it. It is the opposite of God. Remember how satan tried to tempt Jesus? Of course it didn't work. 

Let's just stay off of that couch, because it's stopping our flow and enough is enough. There is much more the Lord has for us. We just have to believe it and do the work to achieve it. That means focusing on what He has for us, which will take hard work and diligence. It won't come for free and it won't come lying around.

If we're not yet living the life the Lord God has for us, could it be that that couch is the culprit?

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
