Just Wait

Ok I have a confession to make: Yesterday I didn't have faith as small as a mustard seed. 

There, I said it. 

I won't go into detail to protect the innocent, but I'll just say, I asked a friend to stand in for me, because I couldn't be at a certain place at a certain time. When the person didn't respond fast enough I got impatient and made other plans. Yet the person was making provisions to help me out, but by the time I found out the person could do it, it was too late. 

I should have just waited. 

Impatience has been a struggle for me for many years and from time to time it creeps back in, but nothing major though. Thank God I'm on my way to complete deliverance. Anyway, I'm just being transparent in telling you that I fell short (again) and although it won't be the last time, at least I'm ok talking about it. At one time I would have been uncomfortable with putting any part of my business out there, but that was then and this is now. Who the heck cares about that? I don't. As I grow older what I have learned (the hard way at times), is that it isn't about me or you for that matter. It's about the people we will touch by sharing our imperfect lives -- our miraculous testimonies -- our remarkable stories. That's what people resonate with and it helps us know we are just trying to get things right. It may be a long road, but we must keep on walking. We will get there.

So, yes I should have waited a little longer than I did, but you know what? The Lord still loves me in spite of myself. I'm so grateful for that. "Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples. For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord" (Psalm 117). He loves you too.

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
