Protection -- When I think of this word so many different things come to mind , As a mother protecting my kids and making sure that they are safe , As a wife being there for my husband and making sure that he has protection around his heart and things when he is out of town or even when hes home , For my family im supposed to be there for them and I know that and give them understanding and protection also the same with my friends , But what about me some times one has to sit back and ask that question , sure my husband is my protector and so are my family but Before all of them God is so very much my protector and he keeps me safe in everything that i do I found several verses that really jumped to me for this word but this one
Exodus 15:12 -You stretched out your right hand and the Earth swallowed them up. But the people you redeemed, you led in merciful love; You guided them under your protection to your holy pasture
really made me stop and understand GOD and his protection for me ..
Others that I liked are
Proverbs 18:10 - God's name is a place of protection— good people can run there and be safe.
Psalm 34:7- God's angel sets up a circle of protection around us while we pray.
And this one How Powerful are the words in this verse and do they not make you stop and think about things but yet these words are so true
2 Samuel 22:3-my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.He is my shield, the power that saves me,and my place of safety.He is my refuge, my savior,the one who saves me from violence.
Proverbs 30:5-Every word of God proves true.He is a shield to all who come to him for protection.
Psalm 18:2-The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.He is my shield, the power that saves me,and my place of safety.
My journaling on the page reads -- God offers us protection in his word and what he promises us If we just trust in it and believe what he says
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog today I hope that you enjoyed it also and that you have a blessed and wonderful day

Our word for the week is COMFORT and Ive really enjoyed spending the time in the Word of God this week studying this word and thinking about the way that it has effected my life my journaling on this page reads ,
Sadly enough sometimes we only turn to our Wonderful Savior when we are in search of comfort And what im starting to realize is that Gods there always to comfort us us during the good times and the bad and to give us the strength to also be there and comfort those in need !
And in searching for the verses for this word I found 3 that I really liked alot one really goes well with my journaling I think
2 Corinthians 1:3[ The Rescue ] All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. We have plenty of hard times that come from following the Messiah, but no more so than the good times of his healing comfort—we get a full measure of that, too.
Matthew 5:11"Not only that—count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens—give a cheer, even!—for though they don't like it, I do! And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company. My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble.
Psalm 119:73With your very own hands you formed me; now breathe your wisdom over me so I can understand you. When they see me waiting, expecting your Word, those who fear you will take heart and be glad. I can see now, God, that your decisions are right; your testing has taught me what's true and right. Oh, love me—and right now!—hold me tight! just the way you promised. Now comfort me so I can live, really live; your revelation is the tune I dance to. Let the fast-talking tricksters be exposed as frauds; they tried to sell me a bill of goods, but I kept my mind fixed on your counsel. Let those who fear you turn to me for evidence of your wise guidance. And let me live whole and holy, soul and body, so I can always walk with my head held high.
And the Song that stands out to me right now is by Matthew West
MATTHEW WEST THE MOTIONS LYRICS

Hope that everybody having a good week I have managed to get my pages I was behind caught up and will be posting them at the bottom of this page this weeks word was GRACE and I really enjoyed doing it I as always found alot of verses that stood out to me with this word also , Ive enjoyed so much doing this study and learning more about Gods wonderful word and studying the bible There is a Calmness and a Grace in knowing and believing in GOD and living your life for him , I'm truly enjoying it I hope you enjoy the scripture and the pages to go along If you get the chance Check out Chris Tomlin song I Will Rise its a pretty powerful song and I think it goes perfect with the word GRACE
The verses that I want to share with you are
Job 22:26-"You'll take delight in God, the Mighty One, and look to him joyfully, boldly.You'll pray to him and he'll listen; he'll help you do what you've promised.You'll decide what you want and it will happen; your life will be bathed in light.To those who feel low you'll say, 'Chin up! Be brave!' and God will save them.Yes, even the guilty will escape, escape through God's grace in your life."
Matthew 6:6"Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won't be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.
Matthew 11: 28-30"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly." -- This one i really liked it reminded me that even when im tired and worn out and just need to escape that Gods there and he will listen i just have to trust in him and turn to him always and at anytime
Romans 5: 1-2By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with him, make us fit for him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that's not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God's grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.
Psalms 111: 1-10 Hallelujah! I give thanks to God with everything I've got— Wherever good people gather, and in the congregation. God's works are so great, worth A lifetime of study—endless enjoyment! Splendor and beauty mark his craft; His generosity never gives out. His miracles are his memorial— This God of Grace, this God of Love. He gave food to those who fear him, He remembered to keep his ancient promise. He proved to his people that he could do what he said: Hand them the nations on a platter—a gift! He manufactures truth and justice; All his products are guaranteed to last— Never out-of-date, never obsolete, rust-proof. All that he makes and does is honest and true: He paid the ransom for his people, He ordered his Covenant kept forever. He's so personal and holy, worthy of our respect. The good life begins in the fear of God— Do that and you'll know the blessing of God. His Hallelujah lasts forever!
Isaiah 26: 7-10The path of right-living people is level. The Leveler evens the road for the right-living.We're in no hurry, God. We're content to linger in the path sign-posted with your decisions.Who you are and what you've done are all we'll ever want.Through the night my soul longs for you. Deep from within me my spirit reaches out to you.When your decisions are on public display, everyone learns how to live right.If the wicked are shown grace, they don't seem to get it.In the land of right living, they persist in wrong living, blind to the splendor of God
And these are the 2 pages that I didn't post for Prayer and Trust I hope that you have a blessed and wonderful day !
