Stay Committed Anyway

Zoom in. Focus. Stay committed to whatever it is you're doing. 

You know some people are trying to throw you off, right? Do you know that? If not, I'm telling you it's true. Some people are so jealous and envious of what you're trying to do and what you're going towards that they can't stand it (or you). But don't despair, because it's not about you. It's about how they feel about themselves and what you remind them of. You symbolize all the things they want for themselves. And you're saying to yourself, "why are they hatin' on me?" "Do they know the struggles I have?" "Do they know the intense pain that drives my desire to succeed?"

Yes, they know some of that, but they don't like the fact that you make it look easy. They don't see you on your knees praying to God. They don't like it that you always rise up from the ashes. They don't hear your cries to the Lord. They don't like that people will not hate you as they do. They don't feel the frustration you feel when you want to reach out and help others, but you don't have the resources. They don't like it that your love for them will never change and that you will never hate them. They don't realize that God is your fortress and refuge (Psalm 46).

They don't know about your life and even if they did, nothing would change how they feel about you and what they think about you. The fact that you're breathing bothers them. I'm not saying they wish bad would come to you. I'm simply saying that your very existence in your form bothers them. If you were down and out they would be fine with you. They would come around more often and try to be big in front of you. But since you're built like a rock they can't stomach you, because your presence is so strong and superior to their weak and inferior self-complex. Your time around them would not be good for you. It's best you stay away from them for now, because they're not ready for you. I'm not sure if they ever will be. 

Stay committed and focused anyway. Don't ever stop. That's exactly what they want you to do. That's exactly what they think their ostracizing you will do. But from time to time they forget that God made you out of teflon and iron. They forget you're a warrior that will devour anything that comes your way, because the strength of the Lord fights for you without you lifting a finger.

They also forgot or never knew that everything the Lord does for you, He will do for them too. photo ISH Signature_zps7zfuxzga.png

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

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

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.
