Resist It

If it doesn't do you no good,
you gotta know when to walk away. 
You can do it.

Resist the things that are no good for you.

But usually you can't do it alone though.

You need God first. Then you need people to help you become stronger. None of us can do life by ourselves. We need helpful caring people. When people say they don't need anybody I think it's an issue of pride and/or arrogance. If we are to resist the things that mean us no good, we also need strong people who can help guide us to the good things. Those people will help us if we allow them too. No man is an island who can be all and do all without someone else to help and support him. Trying to do everything on our own is not only impossible but it's not how God made us. He made man to have companionship.

For a number of years I went through life sad over certain things that happened and certain things that didn't happen. I think I was definitely operating in pride because in my mind it was all about me -- little ole pitiful me. My problem was I wasn't willing to step out of my comfort zone and do something different -- something bold -- take more chances. While it's still something that doesn't come naturally, I asked the Lord to help me in this area and He is guiding my steps. 

I'm getting better.

My point is that temptation is all around us and we need to stay away from those things that bring negativity to our lives. We have to get out of our own way and seek God. Then we have to ask for help from caring and strong people. Then we will be able to do something different than we've done before. This all plays into resisting the things that hold us back. Resistance involves strength.

I believe this is an approach that will help us resist and walk away from nonsensical temptation. It is possible, because “what is impossible with man is possible with God" (Luke 18:27).

That's all I'm saying.

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
