When Misfits Become Kings, Part 3

I have written about Mark Casto's book, When Misfits Become Kings, because I have gotten much from his book.

You can access Part 1 and Part 2, which talks about "outcasts" and "misfits" being just that. I don't know about you, but I embrace being different. I basically have been different all my life. Not the weird type, just one who didn't need to fit in just because everybody else did or believed the popular opinion just because everybody else did. Boring. If you read the book yourself, you would find out that part of Casto's testimony is that he was also a misfit, so it would make sense that the book takes on an autobiographical tone in some parts. In the book's intro he says, "something in me longed for more, and I felt like a square peg in a round hole, an outsider, a misfit going nowhere very slowly." How many of us at some point can identify with that? I know I can. Casto goes on to do big things, include write his book about the plans God had for him. And his next sentence after that quote is, "then someone called my name." 

God at work again, Jeremiah 29:11.

What about you? Do you feel like you're still trying to make sense of where you're going? If so, that's not so unusual, so don't feel bad about it. All of us have felt that way at some point in our journey and as long as you're seeking the Lord at every turn, He will speak. There's no doubt about that. Just stay in tune with His frequency and don't get off that God channel. 

He's still going to use you, don't worry.

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.
