No Fear, No Shame

“Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; For you will forget the shame of your youth..." (Isaiah 54:4). 

That means the Lord God has got you covered. What you did one second ago and even way before that, doesn't matter to God. Once you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9/10), the slate has been wiped clean and you are now covered under His blood,  covered by His grace. Yes I know that Isaiah is in the Old Testament, but guess what? God is still a God of forgiveness and redemption. He loved His people then and He loves us now. Forgiveness is freedom and God has already forgiven you. What you did or didn't do is not a problem for Him. And what you said or didn't say doesn't concern Him. He doesn't use our mistakes against us. So there is nothing to fear and there is no shame or condemnation to those in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1). 

Hold your head high and know you are marvelous and wonderful in God's eyes. Your past doesn't matter one iota to Him and it should not matter to you either. We all have a past and we have no reason to look back. It serves no purpose. God wants to use us now -- today and tomorrow -- the future. Keep that forefront in your mind and let it sink deep inside your spirit.

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
