"May the God of Hope so fill you with Joy & Peace in believing that by the Power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be bubbling over with Hope." Romans 15:13
Freedom is not free, it comes with a price! Just as each of us was bought at a price: the price of Our Savior laying down His life so that we may be FREE! Free from sin, Free from death, Free from the weight of our own destructive nature.
"So if the Son sets you free, you are free indeed." John 8:36
You are NOT overlooked. You are not forgotten. You are not unheard. You are NOT a mistake! You are KNOWN by Him. You can praise Him because you ARE fearfully AND wonderfully made BY Him!
I hope you can take a few moments to read our blog and read the 24 verses of Psalm 139. Read them slowly to soak on the words and let them sink into your heart. The words are describing a Good Father and His precious child. These verses are incredible Truths to combat negative thoughts and feelings.
What IS Peace Anyway?
I think this is a really important question to be able to answer. Read this week's blog as I share a few thoughts that I have, as well as a few verses that I hope encourage you. And you will even find some helpful tips for next time you are lacking peace.
I was reading the Tony Evans Bible Commentary to see what Dr. Evans had to say about these verses. He describes it this way: “Peace is harmony on the inside always in every way–that is, regardless of your circumstances.”
The theme verses for March are I Peter 1:2 "May grace and peace be yours in the fullest measure." and John 10:11 "The Good Shepherd gives His life for His sheep." We want you to REMEMBER and REMIND others that The Lord of Peace and our Good Shepherd lays down His life for us!

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep." | John 10:11
In verse 11, Jesus describes Himself as the “Good Shepherd who laid down His life for His sheep”. I imagine the Shepherd laying His body over His precious sheep taking the deathly blows with His own body. The Good Shepherd by exchanging places with His precious sheep, accepted death to preserve His sheep’s life.
