We have to at least, continue to dream

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Do you know it’s ok to start visualizing the visions and dreams God has for us? Do you know that some people stop thinking on what they want to be and do, because they think it's too big for them? I know, because I used to think the same way. Yes I was scared to move and I let the people around me, talk me out of my dreams. I finally realized that they were scared too. Can you believe that? The blind leading the blind. 

And this is the even sadder part: when I would start talking about my dreams, I let people talk me out of achieving things that weren't even that big. They were just different -- different than what was ever done before. So, I took the bait; I let scared people reel me right into their limited thinking. And I achieved nothing regarding my dreams. I didn't know any better. I wasn't as confident as I am now, so I associated with the wrong people. Not bad people, mind you, just scared people. We were going nowhere together. That was a different girl back then. Today I'm no longer afraid of dreams that are bigger than life. It doesn't matter how big and impossible they seem, I'm not backing down anymore. 

I just want to encourage you that no matter how big your dream is, you have to at least, continue to dream. Without a dream in our heart, what else do we have that will satisfy us to do whatever it is we do? We have to live out what keeps tugging at our heart, because that's God guiding us. Psalm 31:3 says, "for you are my rock and my fortress; and for your name's sake you lead me and guide me."

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
