Users and Winners

You can't help that you're great.
Yep you read it right, users and winners.

Let's get right to it.

I'll start with the winners first. They are the people who just mind their own business, they're on their grind, they're positive, and they're trying their best to live right. They still fall short sometimes, yet God knows the pureness of their heart. Their life trajectory looks towards heaven.

Then you have the users. Another name for them could be classified as the haters. They only call or come around when they need something from you. It can be tangible or intangible. They want to use you up for all you're worth and spit you out again. Isn't it amazing how a user/hater will hate and still smile in your face, all the time wanna take your place? That's a saying from my pastor, Pastor Henderson, of New Beginnings Church in Matthews, NC. Quite fitting for this blog post, wouldn't you say?

Nevertheless, haters are the people who hate (yes hate) you for no logical reason other than jealously, envy, or their own misery and insecurity. They're also rude, condescending, give fake compliments (if they compliment at all), and bad-mouth you (often with lies) to anyone who will listen. If this bothers you even for a minute, get over it and if you're on the come-up, get used to it. In other words, if you're doing anything substantial or on your way, they will come out of the wood-works. Just accept that "haters gonna hate hate hate" (lyrics from the Taylor Swift song). 

So winners, my advice to you is to keep on keeping on.

Don't let any ill feelings towards you stop you from feeling great about yourself or going forward in what God told you to do. Don't let them rattle you. Focus on you, your goals, and "do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord" (Jeremiah 1:8-10)

Keep smiling, keep a positive attitude, and keep winning baby. You're going to be just fine.

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
