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.'

"Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body" (Proverbs 16:24).
Put another way, speaking positive, speaking well and having great things to say, are welcoming to people. It should comes as no surprise that just about everyone loves when people have worthwhile things to say, especially when a situation dictates otherwise. Look, I raise my hand high when it comes to the times I have spoken out of turn and the times I should have stayed mum instead of opening my big mouth. In those situations I had to learn the hard way that silence is powerful.
When you're an open person with an opinion it's easy to spew things off without thinking, but the school of hard-knocks has taught me otherwise and today I'm still learning when to speak and when to remain quiet. I hope to always be in a learning posture. I don't mind that at all. In fact I welcome it, we all should. And we should also welcome the fact that it's wise and good business to speak when it's appropriate and choose our words wisely. Makes sense, right?
All I'm trying to convey in this blog post is, as the scripture says, 'good words are sweet to the body and soul', which means when we are in a state of internal goodness, that's what's going to come out of our mouths. And good words are good for our health.

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

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
