Staying Focused

Some months back I wrote a blog post about focus (May 25, 2016). You can access that article by clicking here.

In the article I said quite a bit about staying on track and not getting distracted by the people, places, and things that try to throw us off course. Focus means pushing through the difficult and not being comfortable with easy. Don't chase easy -- winners don't do easy. Part of being successful in what the Lord wants for us is doing what few people do. It's being inconvenienced and being drawn into the positive. It's also about staying away from the little things that can get us out of sync with walking towards God. Be careful with things and people like that. Case-in-point, I talk to this certain person from time to time (sometimes out of obligation, but that's another blog post) and every time we talk, the person is either gossiping about someone or putting others down. Of course I want no part of that, so I either shift the conversation to something positive or I quickly end it. Who has time for that negativity?

That's a loser mindset if you ask me and it's doing easy (nonsensical speak). As I said, focus is about being drawn into the positive and that's what winners do. I want to do what they do, don't you? Dave Ramsey, renowned financial guru, says 'in order to live like no one else, we have to live like no one else.' I totally agree. What Ramsey is saying, is that if we're not willing to do what the few, the proud, the people who grind hard do, then we won't have all that God has for us. "Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you" (Proverbs 4:25). 

Anyway, check out my other blog post about focus if you like. Other than that, continue to strive to focus.

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

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
