Weird People

You ever been called weird? Strange? Out there? Different? All because you live for God?

If so, good for you. It means you're also extraordinary, awesome, usable, and set-aside to do great things for Him and thus, people. 

One of my favorite movies is The Matrix for several reasons. One being that Neo, the main character, was one of those people who didn't fit in. And that was the very reason he was the chosen one; the one to survive going into the Matrix to wake people up. There were no other Neo's, because nobody else believed in themselves as much as he did. Sure, it was a process to get to that point, it didn't come over night or without any sacrifices. Nevertheless, he was able to do unbelievable feats to save people, because he believed in a force bigger than himself. And that force was his power.

He was the hero.

So, just in case you may be feeling left out or like nobody gets you, please don't let that stop you from believing that God has something bigger and more significant for you to do. Please continue to put yourself out there even if you're ridiculed, laughed at, talked about, or whatever else comes with being you. Others can do extraordinary things as you are, but they are not willing to do them. They're not willing to go the distance, because they can't deal with standing out. They want to be regular and ordinary. They don't realize that standing out is outstanding. So they want easy, but the Lord doesn't call easy. He calls the people who are willing to survive during the storm and persevere through the fire. Then He chooses those people, because they accept being chosen -- they accept being used by Him.

It's a choice.

And you made a good one. So continue being weird or any word that connotes that, because you are courageous as Joshua was when he took over the reigns of leadership from Moses, which wasn't easy (Joshua 1:8-10). And also like Joshua, the Lord is pleased with you. Very pleased.

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
