Watch It

Do you have a big head?
Yep, you heard it right.

Watch it.

And watch out.

That means we must not get the big head, because of what God did for us. Don't fall for that feeling that we're on top of the world. Don't let us get overly confident, because we know how blessed we are for making it through the valley. Don't get so full of ourselves, because of all of our accomplishments.

Remember what happened to Samson (Judges 13). He gave away what God blessed him with as his source of strength and power. He got the big head and God left him. Thus, he wasn't able to be effective in the land. 

Don't you think for one minute that people don't know from whence you draw your strength and power. It's the gift God gave you to inspire and uplift people. People see your gift and some of them don't like it. They wish they had it, so they will use tricks and schemes to render you powerless and weak. You must remember what happened to you "yesterday." All that pain, heartache, humiliation, embarrassment, pride, and God knows what else. Don't dwell on it, but don't forget it. 

Be careful and stay strong in the Lord. For, they think you'll slip again and if you're not careful they'll be right. Seek God always and stay with Him this time. Then look in the mirror and determine what you see. If you see a new creation, that's good. If you see more of the old you, that's not good. In fact it's bad. Pray and ask God for help if you see the latter. If you see the former, pray for continued strength, power, and more humility. 

"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you" (James 4:10)

And that humility will keep your head small. Then your strength and power will be evident. Then people will be helped by you.

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

Protecting My Peace - Day 96 - Disciplining Ourselves for Next Level Greatness

Click to listen to today's podcast episode. When it comes to next level greatness, we have to know that applies to us, not just everyone else. Do you know what God has for you? Do you? He has GREATNESS for you. Yes, YOU -- all of us. It's about doing what you can do and only you can do. You are the only one with your DNA -- none of us. is the same Yet, even when we're feeling down, discouraged, and out, those emotions are only temporary. None of us has it all together. Sometimes I procrastinate and put things off when I know I should be doing better. Yet, I am not as diligent and disciplined as I can be sometimes. Like when it comes to working out, I delay it, because I don't like it anymore. And although I love reading the bible, I haven't been reading it as often as I should lately. Yes, I, Sharon, the Faith Coach, do not do the things I'm supposed to do when I'm supposed to do them. And that my dear friends should not come as a shock to no one. It certa
