Your Circle

I write a lot about keeping the right people close and not being bothered with the things that are  distractors, because I've been through all of that. 

Many of us have, haven't we? Yet we have to appreciate what we do have. We have to value the people, places, and things we do have. And even though we mess up and fall short sometimes, we still have those people in our lives who still love us and who we love, in spite of it all.

Nothing and no one is perfect, but God. In fact just yesterday I wasn't as thankful as I should have been regarding a blessing the Lord gave me. I had forgotten in a moment about being thankful for a certain thing, because it didn't look the way I thought it should look. Then I quickly thought again and realized it was a huge blessing. I repented (asked for forgiveness to God). My point? "Whoever can be trusted [thankful, my word] with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much (Luke 16:10). 

Those people, places, and things God places in our lives, are blessings and we have to do right by them and them by us. That takes hard work and a thankful spirit. I just want to be blessed to be a blessing. That's always available to all of us even when we fall short, because we will. 

And we can still do great things.

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
