Different paths

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
So I was looking at a person who posted her podcast numbers on a social media site. And I have to admit, they were very impressive. Her podcast was only published for less than 6 months and her growth was remarkable. While looking at her post I thought about my numbers and how much longer I had my podcast, but how much smaller my numbers were. And for a quick moment I began to ask God why, but it wasn't 2 seconds later -- literally -- that I stopped mid-thought and said, 'I'm happy for her podcast and I'm happy for my podcast too.' 

You see how quickly I shifted my thoughts? You see how quickly I chose to be happy for someone else? You see how quickly I could have wasted time on thinking her podcast and mine had anything to do with each other? I could have gotten in another head space that was totally ridiculous and unnecessary. Yet I refused to waste my time and if I wasn't careful I could have put unrealistic expectations on myself and on God when that wasn't what He had in mind for me. You see, what God has for me is for me at the time He has it for me. Not a moment sooner and not a moment later. I accept that and I'm moving to His beat, nobody else's. It doesn't matter how much anybody else seems to be blowing up, I'm focusing on me, myself, and I. Plus, I have no idea how things came to be with the next person. What if their foundation is shaky? We have to be careful.

I'm just doing things God's way and I love the peace of mind I have in doing it His way. I can look myself in the mirror and say all is well with my soul. And that's a big deal. So, I've come to encourage you that if anybody seems to be moving full steam ahead and you're not, take heart, God still has you covered. And He hasn't forgotten about you. We just have to be conscious of our mindsets and realize our path is different than the next person's. Consistency is key, so keep pumping out that great content and focus on your path. Philippians 4:7 says, "and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Keep trusting God, stay on your path, and you will get to where it is He's taking you.

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. 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
