Friends

Friends, how many of us have them?
Friends, ones we can depend on.
Friends, before we go any further,
lets be friends.

Those are some of the lyrics from a 1980's song by Whodini. It had a catchy beat too, which made it easier to resonate with people. I still like that song. It had a great message about friendship. 

I thought it fitting to write about friendship today, because 1-my next eBook will be on the subject (it's been on my mind) and 2-Some of us take friendship lightly. We oftentimes take the people who are always there for us, for granted. True friendship is hard to find. Some people are so flaky. They're here today and gone tomorrow, especially if we say or do one little thing wrong. Who has time for that? That's not real friendship, because it's based on conditions. Don't settle for that type of friendship just to say you have a friend. God has much better than that for us. 

Look, if you have even one person in your life who is always there for you and loves you unconditionally, thank the Lord for such a person. And if you're a friend who's always there for that friend and loves that person unconditionally, that's awesome. Some people don't have what you have, they don't have a 2-way relationship like that. Cherish it.

I love the friendship David and Jonathan had (1 Samuel 18:1-5). They really loved, respected, and looked out for each other. I pray we can all find true friendship like that.

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
