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

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
