Fear of Nothing

I think most of us over a certain age remember the famous Franklin D. Roosevelt quote, "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself." Well, let me tell you, I can most definitely relate to that quote. I lived in fear for many years of my life. Primarily, fear of the unknown more than anything. So for many years I didn't act on my goals or what lived in my heart or take chances. I wasted a lot of time being afraid of absolutely nothing. In fact sometimes I still deal with a little of that today. It's nowhere close to what it was before, but I have to be careful, because sometimes it can take me longer to step out and do things. Sometimes I'm still a little concerned about the negative that could happen. If I'm not careful that old 'what will they say?' may pop up or 'will I gain support or lose support?' As a result I'm sometimes initially hesitant of making bold steps, but I step out anyway. I step out despite that fear. Some of what I feel is a natural human emotion that we all deal with from time to time, it doesn't matter how accomplished we are. I admit that freely, yet I do step out and that's what God wants us to do. He wants us to help others with the things we've gone through. Each one of us can help somebody. I'm serious about helping people with their confidence and faith, because I know how much it held me back and I don't want that to happen with anybody else. A scripture that helps me is 2 Timothy 1:7, which says, "for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." Fear doesn't come from God. 

What I'm trying to convey in this blog post is that there's really nothing to fear as long as Christ lives in us. And when we're dealing with something that causes those emotions to come up, it's another reminder of how much we need God in our lives to help us. If any of you fears anything, consult with God and ask Him to help you in that area. It's time to stop letting fear overcome us and step out.

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

Protecting My Peace - Day 96 - Disciplining Ourselves for Next Level Greatness

Click to listen to today's podcast episode. When it comes to next level greatness, we have to know that applies to us, not just everyone else. Do you know what God has for you? Do you? He has GREATNESS for you. Yes, YOU -- all of us. It's about doing what you can do and only you can do. You are the only one with your DNA -- none of us. is the same Yet, even when we're feeling down, discouraged, and out, those emotions are only temporary. None of us has it all together. Sometimes I procrastinate and put things off when I know I should be doing better. Yet, I am not as diligent and disciplined as I can be sometimes. Like when it comes to working out, I delay it, because I don't like it anymore. And although I love reading the bible, I haven't been reading it as often as I should lately. Yes, I, Sharon, the Faith Coach, do not do the things I'm supposed to do when I'm supposed to do them. And that my dear friends should not come as a shock to no one. It certa
