Huh? What did you say?
We need to be better communicators.
"I said..."
"But I thought you..."
"Then she said..."
"No, I meant..."
"Didn't they know...?"

One of the main reasons for misunderstandings is a lack of communication. 

Sometimes I have said too much and sometimes I didn't say enough. Although I'm better with communication, I still have some work to do. Nobody's perfect. All we can do is continue to try to get our point across and vice versa. Sometimes the problem is that people simply do not open their mouths, because they think it will offend the other person or they say too much and offense is taken.

Yet there is a proper way to get messages across without causing conflict. We all have the ability to communicate effectively and tell the other person what we're feeling. We can do that in a calm and respectful manner. If we can't do it that way then there may be some things we need to get together about ourselves. If we're angry at some things that happened in our lives that is no excuse to treat others the way we feel. That is not anybody else's issue. If we are sad and depressed about anything that happened in our lives, that doesn't give us the right to retreat inside ourselves and keep everybody out. Look, I know how it feels to be a bad communicator, because I used to be one and that didn't help me develop the best relationships with people.

We can always tell how people feel about themselves based on how they treat others, can't we? But, we can all get better with God on our side. It just takes seeking Him and continuously praying to get better.

The bottom line is that if we want to live fuller lives, we have to communicate with each other. And even if we disagree with each other at least we understand each other, and understanding is the beginning to developing great relationships. 

"The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit" (Proverbs 18:21).
God will give us the words to say and how to say them when we ask Him. Keep asking.

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

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
