Stay Committed Anyway

Zoom in. Focus. Stay committed to whatever it is you're doing. 

You know some people are trying to throw you off, right? Do you know that? If not, I'm telling you it's true. Some people are so jealous and envious of what you're trying to do and what you're going towards that they can't stand it (or you). But don't despair, because it's not about you. It's about how they feel about themselves and what you remind them of. You symbolize all the things they want for themselves. And you're saying to yourself, "why are they hatin' on me?" "Do they know the struggles I have?" "Do they know the intense pain that drives my desire to succeed?"

Yes, they know some of that, but they don't like the fact that you make it look easy. They don't see you on your knees praying to God. They don't like it that you always rise up from the ashes. They don't hear your cries to the Lord. They don't like that people will not hate you as they do. They don't feel the frustration you feel when you want to reach out and help others, but you don't have the resources. They don't like it that your love for them will never change and that you will never hate them. They don't realize that God is your fortress and refuge (Psalm 46).

They don't know about your life and even if they did, nothing would change how they feel about you and what they think about you. The fact that you're breathing bothers them. I'm not saying they wish bad would come to you. I'm simply saying that your very existence in your form bothers them. If you were down and out they would be fine with you. They would come around more often and try to be big in front of you. But since you're built like a rock they can't stomach you, because your presence is so strong and superior to their weak and inferior self-complex. Your time around them would not be good for you. It's best you stay away from them for now, because they're not ready for you. I'm not sure if they ever will be. 

Stay committed and focused anyway. Don't ever stop. That's exactly what they want you to do. That's exactly what they think their ostracizing you will do. But from time to time they forget that God made you out of teflon and iron. They forget you're a warrior that will devour anything that comes your way, because the strength of the Lord fights for you without you lifting a finger.

They also forgot or never knew that everything the Lord does for you, He will do for them too. photo ISH Signature_zps7zfuxzga.png

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
