The Wilderness

You won't be in it long...

the wilderness.

That depends on you though. It depends on how long it will take you to trust God. To trust in His every move, in His every way, in His every Word.

Will we trust Him or will we wander around in crazy town for 40 years? That's what the Israelites did (see Numbers 32:13). They were in the wilderness, the wasteland, the desert, far longer than God wanted them to be. They were blessed just as you and I are, but like them, how many times did we hold up our blessings? 

It's time to get out of the wilderness. It's crazy hot in the daytime and frigid cold at night. We don't have to be there longer than we should be. Don't get me wrong though, the wilderness is many times necessary to trust God, but to stay there longer than God has for us is not necessary. Why don't we go ahead and do what we have to do to make it to Canaan? We will still have to fight, but isn't it great to fight a fight you've already won? God told the Isrealites the promise land was theirs. All they had to do was obey Him, fight when He said to fight, and to not sleep with the enemy. Yet they wouldn't do those things and they messed up their blessings. 

We must be different this time.The blessings -- the promised land -- the flowing of milk and honey -- is ours for the getting if we will trust and believe God has it for us. Let's go. You ready? It's beyond time.

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.

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
