You're staying strong, right?

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
You're not growing weary are you? You're hanging in there, aren't you? And you're most definitely not giving up, right? I certainly hope not, because you're going to get there. You have to believe that. We're going to get there. Yes, we're going to get to where it is God is taking us. So we can't get so tired and weary that we're not staying battle-ready and we're not staying strong in the Lord. We have to see great things for ourselves like Ruth did. Yes.

In the book of Ruth, she loved Naomi, her mother-in-law, and stayed loyal to Naomi when tragedy struck them. That love and loyalty eventually paid off for Ruth and Naomi through a wealthy man named Boaz, who Ruth later married.

One of the takeaways about the story of Ruth is that she didn't get so weary that she gave up, she hung in there, and she stayed strong in the Lord by well-doing. Galatians 6:9 says, "And let us not grow weary while doing well, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith." Joy really does come in the morning when we stay strong and stay committed through less than ideal circumstances. We have to believe and know greater will come and things will get better. So let's keep praying, let's keep hope alive, and let's stay faithful that what we're waiting for will come. Don't give up, because God is with 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
