Home of the Brave

God created us to make a difference,
not to walk around afraid to ruffle feathers.
The home of the brave are the warriors who are not afraid to stand for change; to stand for what's right. They are not in the business of placating the status quo.

There are many in the bible who stood for worthy causes and who put the people in front of themselves. They did the hard things in the name of Godly leadership. They had it rough at times, but they were like pros who made it look easy. That's what you do when God is with you. It doesn't matter who comes against you, you stand for something. Moses did; Joseph did; David did; Esther did; The Samaritan Woman did. And every last one of them was blessed and highly favored for walking in the mandates of God.

They were all the courageous ones. The ones who were probably scared deep down when they thought about what they were really up against, but fearless and bold as God was with them. They knew it was worth it -- using their voice and life against injustice; risking themselves to help others obtain freedom of some sort. 

I admire them. They didn't care to be accepted by people. They stuck their necks out anyway even though they may have stood alone; even though what they did was right, but unpopular; even though they were ridiculed and made fun of. 

The home of the brave ones. 

The ones chosen and called by God. And the ones who decided to heed the call.

Today, even more are chosen and called, but very few acknowledge or answer, because of fear of the unknown and/or acceptance of man. Yet we have nothing to fear, because God chose and called us to do mighty things in the earth. Acceptance by the people who are sitting on the sidelines must not affect us one way or another. Focus is the key here and unless we submit to God we will always be unsettled and miserable souls. 

How sad. Why not just do what we were born to do? 

I'm going to leave this right here.

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
