You Have the Right to Remain Silent

No need to keep talking about it. Just be about it.
Sometimes when I watch two athletes, I tend to favor the one who remains quiet. Typically big mouth people are fun to watch because they're entertaining, but it's something about that cool, calm, and collected one I like studying. And like athletes, I like watching those National Geographic shows about tigers who sit back and watch their prey. Those tigers are always so patient. They just chill, knowing confidently where their next meal is coming from. No fan fare, no huge roar to let every animal know what's about to happen. Because if the premature big roar happens too soon then that prey will be gone in sixty seconds. So tigers know exactly what to do. They're just doing what they have to do to get what's coming to them. That's attractive to me. I can watch those tiger shows forever. Sometimes I'll just YouTube them and study their character, study their leadership.

It all reminds me of God's blessings. As we continue doing our thing, staying in our anointed (special God-given area) and remain silent about it, then God will do what it is He said He would do. What am I saying? I'm saying we don't have to brag, boast or jump up and down to be seen. Just like that strong confident athlete and tiger, all we have to do is be silent and wait. Our win and hearty meal will come, because God's word doesn't come back void or empty.

How do I know? Because, just as Moses told the Israelites who feared the Egyptians, "the Lord will fight for us and all we have to do is be silent (Exodus 14:14), there is no need to worry or fear. Thus, these words apply in many situations as we stay focused, stay motivated, and remain silent. And when that happens, God will make our voices loud without us saying one word.

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

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.
