"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

"For You, LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield." - Psalm 5:12

This day and age I need to be constantly reminded that I am surrounded with favor like a shield by God. Favor with my health. Favor with my thoughts. Favor with my finances. Favor with my job out there.

Satan has a field day with trying to discourage us. Dreading our a-wakening moment first thing in the morning. Where God cannot wait for our eyes to open to greet us and converse! What a contrast.

Our hearts should be encouraged to know that His ever lasting shield of favor surrounds us. The word "surround" also means "crowning." Wo- So on top of us being surrounded, we also have the crown of favor resting upon us!


  1. I love that! The crown of favor, being surrounded by favor- a wonderful truth!

  2. Thank you for sharing these uplifting messages! Hope you are well! xx

    JBR good message. Hidden meaning unraveled in the word surround. Thanks for doing the research. Your posts are so varied now. Reaching out to everyone. God Bless.

  4. Nice post, JBR. Made me think of this verse. Philippians 4:13. New King James Version I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. :)

  5. Fascinating about the word surround also meaning crowning, Grace - I didn't know that.

    Satan loves to discourage us but God's power is greater than satan's little nips. God takes care of all aspects of our lives if we place Him first!


  6. I remember Beth Moore talking about crown being around our head, our mind. I think I like that thought here too. So often our mind needs protected. Many blessings JBR!

  7. Amen to that JBR:)
