Girl in the mirror

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
I’m going to make a change for once in my life. It's going to feel real good, I'm going to make a difference, I'm going to make it right. As I turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat, this wind is blowing my mind. I see the kids in the street with not enough to eat. Who am I to be blind pretending not to see their needs? A summer's disregard, a broken bottle top, and one man's soul. They follow each other on the wind you know, because they got nowhere to go. That's why I want you to know, I'm starting with the man in the mirror. I'm asking him to change his ways and no message could have been any clearer. If you want you make the world a better place take a look at yourself and then make a change.

I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love. It's time that I realize that there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan, could it be really me pretending that they're not alone? A widow deeply scarred, somebody's broken heart, and a washed-out dream. They follow the pattern of the wind you see, because they got no place to be. That's why I'm starting with me. I'm starting with the man in the mirror. I'm asking him to change his ways. And no message could have been any clearer. If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and then make a change. I'm starting with the man in the mirror. I'm asking him to change his ways. You have to get it right while you've got the time, because when you close your heart, then you close your mind. I'm starting with the man in the mirror. I'm going to make a change. It's going to feel real good. Just lift yourself. You got to start with yourself. I’m going to make that change today. You got to move. You got to stand up, stand up, stand up, and lift yourself. You know it. You know it. Your know it. Make that change.

Those are the lyrics to Michael Jackson's song, Man in the Mirror. And those lyrics along with 2 Corinthians 5:17 are such a reminder and a conviction to me today, that I am indeed a new creation who has much work to do in my life. And I am starting with myself -- with the girl in the mirror, to make things right -- yes, to make things the way the Lord would have me to make them. I'm starting with the girl in the mirror. I'm starting to change my ways. I'm starting with the girl in the mirror. I'm making the world a better place. Today.

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
