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.'

Fly the Plane
Most of us
can start something, but what happens when we're right in the middle of
it and things are not going as well as we thought?
Do we just give up and throw in the towel or do we continue with it, because we know it's what we were born to do?
Carrying out our endeavors is like flying airplanes. It takes precision, focus, and strength.
I'll focus on the strength part, for time sake. Have
you ever seen an obese pilot? Probably not. At least not a very
efficient top-of-her-game pilot, right? There are many reasons why pilots have to be physically fit (as well as, emotionally and mentally fit). It's a demanding job. Finishing goals and carrying out our God-ordained life purpose is also demanding. We need similar attributes to that of the pilot if we want to be able to fly the success plane.
It's not for the give-up-easy people. And starting, continuing, and
finishing something isn't for the person who wants quick results either. It's for the person who is the most fit to survive to the end -- to the mission is accomplished.
Nothing worthwhile comes easy.
finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched
by your completion of it, according to your means" (2 Corinthians
It's going to take hard work and push
through to continue working throughout challenges and struggles. Yet the
outcome is so worth it. Just think about anything you had to work hard
to get. What was the feeling when you got it?
If you want that feeling each time you complete a goal, the process will be the same.

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. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

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
