Covered

Do you know God loves us so much He shields, defends, and protects us against anything that wants to bring us harm? And He does the same when we make wrong choices, dumb decisions, and careless mistakes. 

We are covered and forgiven by Jesus' blood. The blood He shed for us. 

Just for us. 

We don't have to die (anymore) when we fall short or when we mess up or when we don't measure up. Jesus took all of that pain so we wouldn't have to. In other words, we are covered daily. The Lord God is always working on our behalf. He's our rear guard, our front, left and our right. He's our armor from the top of our head to the bottom of our feet. We have His safeguards from all directions. 

And if anyone asks how we're doing we can simply reply, "we're good" and mean it.

Yet everyone isn't covered though. There are certain things that must be done in order for that to happen. We have to become a child of God. We have to believe with our heart that Jesus died (and rose) for us, confess with our mouth that He died (and rose) for us, and ask for forgiveness for our sins. Then and only then, will we be saved (Romans 10:9).

Salvation is available for anyone and everyone. 

And once that happens, you're in there. Covered.

Another helpful scripture: 1 John 1:5-10

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

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

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.
