Choose Wisely

I think it's best taking the road less traveled sometimes, don't you? 

When it comes to achieving great things, the people who don't care to fit in are the ones who are usually the ones who will get to where God has for them to go. Too many times people want to be a part of the crowd, because it makes them feel valuable. Let me tell you this: if you what to go where God is sending you, the crowd can't come, because God only called you. And He doesn't call the people who want to be around a crowded place, because it's too much going on and that can lend itself to chaos and too many distractions. What I'm saying is that you can't be afraid to go where no man has gone before. As long as God is with you, He's guiding you and you will be ok. 

In the bible, Esther found herself alone. She was preparing to go to the next level the Lord had for her and she knew she couldn't hang out with the rest of the women. She had to focus. She knew she had to choose the road God had for her and she had to be smart about it. She eventually ended up in a great place as a result. Her story can be read from the book of Esther. It's a great story if you get a chance to read it. 

At any rate, it's ok to stand alone if we are standing for God. He will make it so our choice in choosing Him pays off for us. For, He gives us the choice to choose and we must choose wisely if we are going to be used by Him.

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
