Cheetahs and Us

The Cheetah is not the only run who defies speed.
So I decided to watch a YouTube video about Cheetahs.

And I wasn't disappointed. 

The video was called, This Is Why You Can't Outrun a Cheetah.1 It talked about how fast they were -- they run at 75 miles per hour. In the video it was said that the Cheetah was the "king of speed" with acceleration faster than a Ferrari or Lamborghini. And that it moved so quickly that its feet spent more time in the air than the ground. 

Fascinating. 

Then of course I thought about how God works and I drew a similarity to the Cheetah. I thought, ok God can also do a work in us faster than a Cheetah can run. Makes sense, doesn't it? I mean He created the Cheetah,2 so the fact that it's been established that He created Cheetahs to run so fast that they defy reason, He also created His people to do even more. Henceforth, He's the God of the possible and the impossible, which means that just as He created the Cheetah as the king of speed to operate at the top of its game, He most definitely created His people to operate at the top of their game.

That's right, as fast as that Cheetah goes when it wants something, God works the same way with his human creations. And that means, just when we think we've been waiting too long and nothing is ever going to ever happen with our dreams, God will enable us to become the kings and queens of speed. So much so, that we will have feet that spend more time in the air than they spend on the ground. It will happen that quick.

Don't underestimate God.

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
