God is good all the time...

...and all the time God is good.

He is my fortress. "He is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (Psalms 46:1).  He is also our refuge, strength, and our very present help in time of peace. How do I know? Because He comforted me when I was high and He comforted me when I was going through hell. He gave me peace in the middle of a storm. I remember going through a traumatic event that I don't talk about much and I wondered how He would get me through it. I didn't dwell on it, I just wondered how, when all the decks were stacked against me. Yet He got me through in ways I could have never imagined. In fact I still scratch my head in awe and wonder. Yet, that's God.

He's good all the time and all the time He is good.

He wants to use our life as a testimony to people not to ever give up -- to stay with Him during the tough times and during the great times. Yes, He's good and He ensures "we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling (Psalm 46:2/3). He reminds us that we have nothing to fear. Fear (or anxiety) don't come from the Lord. Relax in Him and take solace that His Word stands through the test of time. It's solid, credible, and reliable. If you're having some challenges and going through a hard time right now, keep praying to God and keep seeking Him. And if you're not going through a hard time, still pray and keep seeking Him.

"The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress." Stand on God's Word.

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
