Lifelong Learners

You know what it means to be a lifelong learner?

It means forever keeping our minds sharp, our bodies as fit as possible, and reading as much as we can. Those are just some of the ways we stay alert and vibrant. Age is nothing but a number and there are so many ways to stay abreast of the latest and the greatest. Remember how old Abraham and Sarah were when God did miraculous things in their lives? He blessed them with a biological son. Abraham was about 100 and Sarah was 90 years old. I don't know what that age would be today, but Abraham and Sarah didn't believe it back then, so point noted. We would think the same today. Nevertheless, they were willing and able to do what the Lord needed them to do in order to carry out His mandates. Having Isaac was one of them. 

Do you think that would have happened if they had a give-up attitude or if it would have happened if they weren't in good shape spirituality, emotionally and physically? Highly doubtful. They were lifelong learners willing to go the distance. And they were exceedingly blessed, because of it. Genesis 17 tells more about their story. 

The lesson here is that you're never too old to learn anything, to be anything, and to do anything. Stay opened-minded to learning. You never know what the Lord has in store for you.

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
