A godly and biblically-based devotional to help people with their faith and confidence; to encourage, educate, and inform. Come everyday for inspiration. Almost everybody is going through something and you can get through it with Jesus. I am a witness to that fact. Never give up on the great blessings God already has lined up for you. Jeremiah 29:11 says, 'He knows the plans He has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'

Shake it off!
That's right, you've probably heard the Taylor Swift song, "Shake it Off."
It's a song about letting trouble, struggle, rejection, and disappointment roll off your shoulder. Taylor Swift sings about such things and I think it's probably because she's been through her own struggles. Writing is a way to shake it off, at least for me. And apparently one of your ways is to read, at least a little, because you're one of the faithful when it comes to this blog. For some reason you look forward to it. That means it's helping you shake some things off too. At least I hope so.
If that's the case then more than likely we're in the same boat -- navigating the best we can though this difficult thing called life. To succeed in it by doing God's will, is not a joke. That's ok though, we're used to overcoming challenges and difficulties. We're like a Ford truck, built tough (their motto).
Anyway, just continue to shake off those things that come your way to defeat you. And continue to fight them. As long as you stay strong, focused, and fixed on the Lord God, He will give you strength to fight another day and you'll come out victorious once again as you continue to shake it off. "I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken (Psalm 16:8).

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

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.

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
