Pushing Through, Despite It All

There are many people who achieve great things in life, yet little do people know, the pain they live with from day to day, is intense. Pain of loss, pain of regret (yes some people still admit that there are things they regret), pain of experiences they've suffered in their lives. You may be asking how it is that they are able to function to such great heights if such intense pain lives inside them. Well, for starters, they are driven by their pain. They live with it to help others know that they too, can and will get through it. Their entire mission in life is to get others to see the greatness of God that can dwell inside them in spite of the pain. Their entire mission is to get through to people that God will comfort them always. They tuck their pain inside themselves in order to reach others and another person's joy brings them joy. They realize that if it were not for their pain, others wouldn't gain as much. They realize that somebody had to live it and somebody has to give it. They have accepted the mandate from God. 

And with the Lord on their side, He gives them the strength and love to make it each and every day in order to help one more person know that whatever they're going through shall pass. He gives them the strength to tell another person that surely God is their help and He is the one who sustains them (Psalm 54:4).

That's what makes them get up in the morning. They see another and another that they can tell about the Lord's sustaining power and that He too, will sustain them forever and ever.

Amen.

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
