The Pusher

We need people who help
push us to become better.
Who exactly is she? Who exactly is he?

Before I answer that, let me just state that we should have at least one in our lives. 

The Pusher

A Pusher is someone who does just that -- He pushes us to be better and to do better. She is the person who is available anytime we need to talk and who is never bothered by us "bothering" her. In short, Pushers are our cheerleaders, but not the "yes" type of people. It doesn't matter how old or young we are, we need that person who pushes us out of our comfort zone. Pushers are the wise people God put in our lives just for us. They tell us what they're thinking about us and our lives and they're not in the business of stroking our egos. They have our best interest in mind at all times and they know we will have to stretch in order to get to the things of God. For, they know there are no natural shortcuts in life. There are only shortcuts created by God. 

Pushers stay in tune with God and they seek Him often for direction over people's lives. Paul was such a person. He pushed (encouraged) people and he also gave them a piece of his mind when needed. He did it all in love and the people who listened were blessed as a result. 

Do you have a Pusher in your life? If not, why not?  If you don't have one, pray to God for one to come into your life. If you have one already, you are ahead of the game.

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
