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.

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

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.

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno
