How to encourage yourself

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.

In yesterday’s blog post and podcast I talked about encouraging ourselves, but I didn’t really get into how. Would you like to know what has worked for me?

The scripture reference comes from Hebrews 13:8, which says, God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow and He wants us to rely on Him first and foremost. When we do that —when we tap into His unlimited resources, He gives us what we need when we need it. That includes encouragement. He gives us Godly encouragement and He gives us free will to encourage ourselves. I choose to encourage myself everyday even if I don’t always feel that great about certain things. Self-encouragement is a choice we make. What kind of day will we choose to have? Are we going to let anyone take our power? Will we make the decision to triumph over all that ails us? The decision is ours and we can’t hold anybody else responsible. 

Today I’ll tell you what works for me. First off, I have a relationship with the Lord, which means I speak to Him aloud when it’s just He and I. And I speak to Him silently when the time calls for that. He speaks back several ways. One is through His Word -- the bible. I read His Word whenever I feel the urge to and I get revelation. I also listen to podcasts, videos,  read books, talk to positive people, or work-out.

It’s about getting the blessings of the Lord in order to live out our purpose. God wants us happy, joyous, and prosperous. And we have a right to our godly inheritance.

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

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

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.
