Proverbs 24-There is victory in the abundance of counselors

Daily Dvotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
"For by wise guidance you can wage your war, and in abundance of counselors there is victory" (Proverbs 24:6).

I have an accountability person and she is wise, non-judgmental, and spiritual. I also have a great friend who just happens to be a minister and he is the same way. I love talking to both of them and anytime I need good sound advice, they are always available for me. I can trust them without blinking and they have never betrayed that trust. I help them, as well, by encouraging them and providing whatever support they need when they need it.

Who do you have around you? Are they wise spiritual people or are they what is considered dead weight -- just there pulling you down because they offer no substance? And what do you offer them? I don't know about you, but everyone around me has to offer me something of value and I have to do the same. We should bring each other something worthwhile or we're just people who are not giving or growing. I've been through too much not to go to new levels of positivity of some sort. Proverbs 27:17 talks about iron sharpening iron, which means we should have relationships where we strengthen each other, right? Those things are important. When we have an abundance of counselors, we will have victory (Proverbs 24:6 ).

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
