Nobody's Perfect

Some time ago I had a conversation with somebody who criticized a speaker/leader I know.

The speaker was someone who speaks often and has a high-profile position in the community. He was criticized because the person didn't like a few things he said, although the person still supported what he stood for. In other words he wasn't so far off to say or believe something so crazy that people didn't follow him anymore. He was still on point in his message. It's just the person didn't like something he said and how he said it. My stance was that it is normal for anyone to stumble, mess up, and fall short sometimes even if that person is a high-profile speaker. I told her to cut him some slack considering how much he actually spoke. Who gets everything right all the time? Not even Lebron does and he is the best basketball player ever :). The more we do the more chances we have to stumble and the more we do the more chances we have to get things right. So there really isn't failure in my eyes. It's just honing our craft and learning from our mistakes, because we all make them.

Such is the case with my blog. As you know I blog every single day and sometimes I don't get things quite right. I know that. And if the Lord puts something in my spirit that I should fix I will fix it. No questions asked. I have corrected things before and I will continue to. I'm not talking about writing what people want me to write the way they want me to write it. That will be dismissed almost immediately. I'm talking about the things that God has told me to correct. 

My point? When people are putting themselves out there for others, they deserve forgiveness too, as well as, some elbow room. We are just trying to help people by using the gifts God gave us and when we find ourselves in error please understand that we are not coming from a bad place. We are simply the imperfect humans God has positioned to spread His gospel in one form or another. And we must remember that in spite of how many times we stumble, "the Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand (Psalm 37:23/24). We're just trying to get things right.

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
