Choose Your Battles

Fight if you must, but fight smart and choose wisely.

Just seek the Lord first and have Him direct you in how to go about getting what's yours. When people do you dirty it's best to let go and let God unless He says otherwise. Retaliation is from the Lord, not us. That means fight when He says fight or trust Him to do our fighting for us.  In 1 Samuel 30 the Lord told David to fight when David asked Him if he should pursue the Amalekites who raided his camp, set fire to it, and kidnapped everyone's families. David was free to take care of business and he was serious too. He went full force and took no prisoners, literally. He cleaned house.

The Lord protects His flock and gives us the ammunition we need against our enemies. So there is no need to fear any man. Whether we fight or the Lord fights for us, we will get everything back that was stolen from us. That can be our joy, peace or anything else that we have a right to. Read 1 Samuel 30 and see how David got everything back from the enemy and how he took them out -- almost every last one of them. 

I'm sure the people who heard about how the Lord was with David, ensured they weren't naive enough to make the same mistake the Amalekites did. That's God for you. He will make sure everybody knows what's up.

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
