Never Retire

I never want to retire.

How about you? 

Imagine a life where you get up when you want, because you don't have to work, you want to work.  Wouldn't that be great? I never experienced that before, but that's the goal. I've heard about people who had regular run-of-the-mill jobs and when they finally retired it was as if their life stopped. I don't want it to be that way. I don't want to retire and sit around with no purpose. I want to have something worthwhile to do to contribute to the world and to help people. That will keep us vibrant and youthful. Don't think the Lord doesn't have better for us, because He does. We have to strive to do what He has for us and that entails us never having to really retire. And when He does that we shouldn't want to, because we'll awake to the next chapter of doing something else great. And that can be at any age. It doesn't have to be in old age.  

Needless to say, I just want to always be able to do the things I love, so it never appears I'm really working -- where I'm doing what I love so much I would do it for free. Those positions exist because we're the ones who create them. It's called purpose and purpose creates enlightening things for us to do. It's also called living in freedom and it's available to anyone who desires it. Keep it in your heart and believe God. 

"And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ" (Philippians 1:6)

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
