Weird People

You ever been called weird? Strange? Out there? Different? All because you live for God?

If so, good for you. It means you're also extraordinary, awesome, usable, and set-aside to do great things for Him and thus, people. 

One of my favorite movies is The Matrix for several reasons. One being that Neo, the main character, was one of those people who didn't fit in. And that was the very reason he was the chosen one; the one to survive going into the Matrix to wake people up. There were no other Neo's, because nobody else believed in themselves as much as he did. Sure, it was a process to get to that point, it didn't come over night or without any sacrifices. Nevertheless, he was able to do unbelievable feats to save people, because he believed in a force bigger than himself. And that force was his power.

He was the hero.

So, just in case you may be feeling left out or like nobody gets you, please don't let that stop you from believing that God has something bigger and more significant for you to do. Please continue to put yourself out there even if you're ridiculed, laughed at, talked about, or whatever else comes with being you. Others can do extraordinary things as you are, but they are not willing to do them. They're not willing to go the distance, because they can't deal with standing out. They want to be regular and ordinary. They don't realize that standing out is outstanding. So they want easy, but the Lord doesn't call easy. He calls the people who are willing to survive during the storm and persevere through the fire. Then He chooses those people, because they accept being chosen -- they accept being used by Him.

It's a choice.

And you made a good one. So continue being weird or any word that connotes that, because you are courageous as Joshua was when he took over the reigns of leadership from Moses, which wasn't easy (Joshua 1:8-10). And also like Joshua, the Lord is pleased with you. Very pleased.

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 joy. And I…

Encourage yourself in God

Do you know that no matter what you may be going through, you can encourage yourself in the Lord? And the Lord will give you the strength and power you need in order to get through? Yes, He will do it. He did it for David when David probably found it difficult to understand how he would endure. But, guess what? God was with him and God blessed him too. There are so many things I love about David. One of those things is that he encouraged himself in the Lord beyond the challenging circumstances he found himself in (1 Samuel 30:6).
When it seemed all was lost, David didn't give up. When everyone turned their backs on him, he stayed with his vision. When his family and community were taken, he went forth with what God told him to do. David never left the Lord in spite of his circumstances. I love that he did the opposite of what some of us would do, he stayed with God, he didn't run away from God. And he didn't try to take matters into his own hands. He ran towards the order…

Jesus gives mercy

"Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road."
Isn't that another great testimony about God's mercy? That story comes from Mark 10:46-52 and it's encouraging for a number of reasons. Namely, that Jesus had mercy on a …
