Peace and Prosperity

You ever wonder why some people function from a peaceful place and others do not? It's simple really. The former keep the Lord's commandments (orders, precepts) and they live a life of peace and prosperity. Now prosperity may not necessarily be monetary. Prosperity can be living a life of abundance through great relationships, as well as, great spiritual, physical and emotional health. People just living a good life and being in a place of acceptance of how the Lord directs their lives. No, everything won't go perfectly and there will be challenges for sure, yet some people handle struggles, challenges, and setbacks, like a champ. They know they're going to win and they are as prepared as possible for battle, because they know the battle isn't theirs. It's the Lord's. It's just as simple as that when we follow God and His ordered steps of our lives. Proverbs 3:1/2 says, "my son [or daughter], do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity." 

I trust God and His word, the bible. And I don't just write these blog posts for posting-sake. I believe every last one of them and I try my best to live accordingly. Do I fall short? You bet, I sure do, more times than I wish. I did today. It may not have been a huge thing, but falling short is falling short. Yet I am trying my best to live a life holy and acceptable to the Lord and I know that is a tall order for us humans. But what I'm glad about, is the fact that I have something to live for. And you have something to live for too. Believe that.

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
