"Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!" (Psalm 107:1).

That means to be in a thankful posture towards the Lord, as well as, being thankful for what we have, not only focusing on what we don't have. If you take a moment to look at your life and what's around you, it's a good chance that you have many more blessings than you think. There are many people who don't have it as good as yourself. And just in case you're saying, no Sharon you truly don't understand what's going on in my life. Well let me tell you, I may not know all the facts, but I know there are people who have it doubly worse than you and someone who has it doubly worse than them. It's just the way of the world. Why? I don't know all the answers to the reason why. Yet I do know that God allows certain hardships in our lives to get the glory from us coming out of our plights. He wants to showcase our lives for others to see His goodness. Let Him use your life as a model of His awesomeness. He wants to bless you.

Remember Esther? She was an orphan who was raised by her cousin Mordecai, because both of her parents died. Imagine that. But God was with Esther and He blessed her in spite of her setbacks. Or perhaps myself, my parents died on the same day during the same year. And I'm still standing. God is with me and I know that for sure.

Consider those things when you think nobody has it worse. And consider those things when you feel like giving up. Stay with it and be thankful for the things around you that are good even if it's one thing. God can work with that.

Be encouraged.

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

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.

Speak things as if they were

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. Do you know you have the power to speak things into existence? Do you know you have the power to change your atmosphere? Oh yes, so speak life to your life and know that the Lord's Word never comes back void. It is always alive and active. It's never too late to start speaking over your life. In   Mark 11 :24 Jesus says, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours"  and   Proverbs 23 :7 says, "for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he."  Those verses are proof that when something lives in our heart, all we have to do is open our mouths and speak those things as if we already had them. It's amazing how much power we really have, but we throw it away, because of our lack of faith. I've done that for years and let me tell you, it's not happening anymore. I'm not giving no thing, no one, and no place another inch of m
