The Lioness

I'm going for it.
One of my favorite animals to watch on those animal shows, is the lioness. 

She's sleek, smart, and will do what it takes to feed her young. 

Yes, she's mainly the hunter. Not the lion. His role is important, but different. The lioness is the one who goes after the prey. She's the queen.

She goes after the enemy in a calculating way. She studies them and waits for the perfect opportunity to pounce.

Game over.

Of course I like that about her, because she fights for survival and although her meal may not come easy, she doesn't abort the mission. She has abnormal persistence to go after what she wants and what she feels she has a right to. One can't help but respect her prowess in the wild. It's something to watch. Mesmerizing. I can watch her forever, because her fortitude is formidable. Her determination, admirable.

I can't help but think God raised us the same way. To have that purposeful way we should go about getting what's ours. Getting what He promised us. Like the lioness going after her prey, it will take a resolute fearlessness that will get us there. We can't stop simply because the territory is unknown. We must go in and demand to get what's coming to us.

God has given us the boldness and courage to do it, so let's go get what's ours. We have the right, because, "the wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion", (Proverbs 28:1).

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
